********It specifically exempts members of Congress***********

"If legislation similar to the Kennedy bill lands on Mr. Obama's desk, he has an obligation to keep his promises to the American people and veto it" I'll bet my life savings that this DOES NOT HAPPEN!!!
"And whatever health-insurance law is passed should apply to members of Congress. If it isn't good enough for them, it shouldn't be imposed on the rest of us." I couldn't agree more!!! If we are forced into something, EVERYONE should have it!!!
