Do As I Say, Not As I Do

How many of us have heard this before? It is uttered as if to say, I am better than you, so I don't have to follow my own advice.

Regarding health insurance reform. The new bill signed by El Presidente is a game changer in a lot of ways. But guess who is exempt.

Federal government employees.

CBS News tell us this:

page 158 of the legislation, which appears to create a carve out for senior staff members in the leadership offices and on congressional committees, essentially exempting those senior Democrat staffers who wrote the bill from being forced to purchase health care plans in the same way as other Americans.

Those who drafted, and voted on the health insurance reform bill, don't have to follow the same rules they have imposed on the rest of us.

Seems a bit elitist, doesn't it?

As Speaker Pelosi said a few weeks ago, it’s only after this legislation is passed that we’ll truly find out what’s in it.

Truer words were never spoken.
