    Republican Senator Vitter demands vote to block Congress' exemption from Obamacare

    In response, the Senate Democrats try to blackmail him...

    Last week there were arguments on Capitol Hill about whether Congress
    should be treated like the rest of the country when it comes to Obamacare.

    Senator David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, has demanded a floor vote on
    his bill to end an exemption that members of Congress and their staffs are
    slated to get that will make them the only participants in the new Obamacare
    exchanges to receive generous subsidies from their employer to pay for their
    health insurance. Angry Senate Democrats have drafted legislation that dredges
    up a 2007 prostitution scandal involving Vitter.

    The confrontation is a perfect illustration of just how wide the gulf in attitudes is
    between the Beltway and the rest of the country — and how viciously Capitol Hill
    denizens will fight for their privileges.

    from National Review

    Where are the bleading heart liberals from yahoo "news" on this to defend
    some one who was standing up for americans by doing the right thing?
    Yahoo is on the side of the rich Senate Democrats who feel they are exempt
    from the socialist health care system they passed on the rest of us.
