Doesn’t it seem odd that Democratic leaders in the House were so excited to get the health care bill passed, yet certain Congressional staffers have made themselves exempt to its requirements?
Senator Chuck Grassley explained the division to Politico:
“The new health care law creates two double standards. The congressional staff who wrote the new law exempted themselves from the new health care system, while other staff will be in it,” Grassley said today in a statement. “And, President Obama himself will not live under Obama health care. The message to grassroots America is that it’s good enough for you, but not for us.”
Why are the American people ordered to abide by this health care law while certain congressional staffers are exempt? If Congress really believed this bill is so great, then they too should abide by its requirements. If nothing else, this exemption tells us in black and white that this legislation is not as good as advertised. If it were, there would be no need for the exemption.
