ObamaCare exempts the ruling class

ObamaCare exempts the ruling class

Affordable Care Act popularly referred to as ObamaCare will be exempting the ruling class from its onerous mandates.  The law written by Congress and their staffers require the aforementioned to participate in the insurance exchanges.  Meaning they would be required to pay thousands of dollars a year in out-of-pocket insurance costs.

President Obama has granted Congress and staffers  extra payments to cover about 75% of the cost of the average insurance plan.  The ruling class is basically exempting themselves from a law they are forcing upon the rest of us peasants.  When the United States Constitution was written in 1787 the Founders guaranteed the States the rulers would be subject to the same laws as the people.

Three of the Founders wrote a series of essays explaining the Constitution to the States seeking ratification.  One of the authors of the Constitution and the essays known as the Federalist Papers or Federalist Essays was James Madison later to become the nations fourth president.  He wrote Federalist Paper 57 addressing this issue of the rulers exempting themselves from the peasants.        

Federalist Essay number 57 written by James Madison:

“I will add, as a fifth circumstance in the situation of the House of Representatives, restraining them from oppressive measures, that they can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society. This has always been deemed one of the strongest bonds by which human policy can connect the rulers and the people together.”
