Against Special Privileges for Congress
by

It really is outrageous that ObamaCare won’t apply to Congress and its staff in an ordinary way. Here’s my latest on it, explaining that this breaks one of the signal achievements of the 1994-5 Contract with America. 

An excerpt:

   This sort of special exemption for government workers is not a merely symbolic annoyance; instead, it feeds a perception that soon becomes an attitude that soon makes itself manifest in various actions. The perception is that government workers are above the law; the attitude that can grow among the federal workforce is that those workers are our masters rather than our servants; and the actions that flow from that attitude can include many abuses, small and large, of privacy or liberty.

This is important.
