well, it would be better to offer examples of programs that congress exempts themselves from (hint: the healthcare bill isn't one of them....they are not "exempt", but, like everyone with an employer provided insurance program, they are not expected to go onto the public option if it exists).
but of course, congresspeople _are_ citizens, and as citizens, are subject to the same laws we all are subject to. if you want their employee benefits to be something specific, demanding that "Congress shall make no law that applies to the
Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States" doesn't do the job. not even close.
