Letter: Average or elite?

To the Editor:

In 2009, American citizens were angry at their congressmen about forced government managed health care. Congressmen answered the town hall crowds that they would also participate in the government health system. 

Just like average working Americans.

In recent weeks, the congressmen and their staffs learned how much more Obamacare will cost and the fewer options and benefits provided to them. The White House responded that it would work to create a special exemption and extra cash payments due to the added cost. The congressmen and congressional staff may be partially exempted or reimbursed for Obamacare. 

Just like socialist political elites.
