Senior Congressional Staff EXEMPT From Health Care Bill

The New Ledger has the news thanks to Ben Domenech.

One such surprise is found on page 158 of the legislation, which appears to create a carveout 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.

John Edwards was right — there are two Americas. The one the Democratic legislators live in and the one the rest of us live in.
