Should Lawmakers be Exempt from Obamacare?

Sure, as soon as all the rest of us are exempt. . . "Tyranny is when the government reserves rights for themselves that they deny to everyone else"

I get upset by a lot of what happens in the corridors of power, but two things really irk me.

First, I hate it when the rich and powerful use the coercive power of government to screw ordinary people. That’s one of the reasons I hated the TARP bailout.

Second, I hate the utter hypocrisy of the political elite exempting themselves from the bad policies that get imposed on everyone else. That’s why, for instance, it galls me that the pro-tax bureaucrats at the OECD get tax-free salaries.

Well, now we have a new example...
