“The power under the constitution will always be in the people. It is entrusted for certain defined purposes, and for a certain limited period, to representatives of their own choosing; and whenever it is executed contrary to their interest, or not agreeable to their wishes, their servants can and undoubtedly will, be recalled.”

~ George Washington (1787)

Either Abide By It or Repeal It! (UPDATED)

Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.

…Yet if Capitol Hill leaders move forward with the plan, they risk being dubbed hypocrites by their political rivals and the American public. By removing themselves from a key Obamacare component, lawmakers and aides would be held to a different standard than the people who put them in office.
If this happens, aAll the members of Congress needs to be tarred and feathered for being as hypocrites for even considering this ..... after being run out of office.

If they are to be exempted because ObamaCare is a problem, THEN SHUT THE STUPID PROGRAM DOWN, so that all Americans aren't equally oppressed. Life can be that simple.

Write your Congressional delegation.
