Congress opt out of Obamacare

To the editor:

Tryon Daily Bulletin readers might watch for the outcome of the president’s reported plans (Wall Street Journal – Aug. 5, 2012) to exempt Congress from the requirement to participate in Obamacare.

The reported reason is that participation would cause the loss of the generous benefits provided by their current federal program.

Supposedly, the president could not get a simple change in the law to that effect. So he may order the exemption.
