Good enough for thee, but not for me

If ObamaCare is such a super idea, how come Obama and his minions in Congress ain't subject to its reg'lations, dictates, and sich?!

If I wuz a left-winger -- I'm way too educated, and I have way too much common sense to be a left-winger (I'm just wuz-ing for speculative effect) -- I'd be real pissed knowing that the folks who purport to be for the common man ain't willing to live like the common man.

To wit:

The new health care law exempts the president from having to participate in it. Leadership and committee staffers in the House and Senate who wrote the bill are exempted as well. A weasel-worded definition of "staff" includes only the members' personal staff in the new system; the committee staff that drafted the legislation opted themselves out. Because they were more familiar with the contents of the law than anyone in the country, it says a lot that they carved out their own special loophole. Anyway, the law is intended to affect "ordinary Americans," according to Vice President Joe Biden (who - being a heartbeat away from the presidency - also is not covered), not Washington insiders.
