We should have seen it coming down the road. On ABC-TV's 'Network Special on Health Care' President Obama was asked directly and to the point and I quote, "Mr. President, will you and your family give up your current health care program and join the new 'universal health care program' that the rest of us will be on?"
After a silence of 15 seconds, an eternity as far as TV time goes, President Obama not only choose not to answer the question but in fact, completely ignored it as if it had never been asked. Why are we now surprised that the recently passed health care reform bill explicitly provides Congress a 100% exemption from participating in the health care reforms foisted on the rest of the nation. No less than 23 Senators when asked the very same question responded unanimously, "We'll think about it.".
This great new health care reform, the salvation of you and I, is not good enough for President Obama, his family or Congress. If you're surprised you've either been asleep or not paying attention.
