Congresspeople exempt selves from new health care purchasing requirements

After all the talk about how wonderful the new health care “reform” legislation is, it seems that the people who wrote it have exempted themselves and their staff members, as well as President Obama and his family, from having to purchase insurance on the new exchanges, just like the rest of us.  Hmm.  Interesting.

Especially when you consider this quote from Obama himself*: “Once this reform is implemented, health insurance exchanges will be created, a competitive marketplace where uninsured people and small businesses will finally be able to purchase affordable, quality insurance. They will be able to be part of a big pool and get the same good deal that members of Congress get.”  Really?  How will people be able to “get the same good deal that members of Congress get” when those members are exempted from the exchanges?

Senator Hagan, did you know that you were exempting yourself from this wonderful legislation you voted for?  I wish she were up for election this year again instead of Richard Burr who has been doing such a great job fighting for the people of North Carolina (and all Americans).
