When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care 
Act (“Obamacare”) was being debated, proponents 
were accused of saddling Americans with inferior 
and expensive health care while keeping generous 
coverage for themselves at taxpayer expense. To 
rebut that allegation and build confidence in the 
bill, a provision was added mandating that 
members of Congress – and their staff members – 
get there coverage through the new exchange 
system the bill set up. Now that the time to sign 
up for exchange coverage is nearing, a Democratic 
member, Rep. John Larson (D., Conn.), is saying 
that “this is simply not fair” – as key staff 
members head for the exits to avoid Obamacare.

reports that “many on Capitol Hill fear it could 
lead to a brain drain” and notes that “[t]he 
problem is far more acute in the House, where 
lawmakers and aides are generally younger and less wealthy.”

What? Obamacare disproportionally hurts those 
with lower incomes? It may come as a surprise, 
but it shouldn’t. 
<http://blog.heritage.org/2009/10/26/oppressing-the-poor-with-health-care-reform/>We’ve 
known this since before the legislation even passed.

More to the point, why did Rep. Larson vote to 
impose on the country a health coverage system that “is simply not fair”?
