Good for the goose, good for the gander?

To the editor:

The liberal progressive Democrats tell us they want health-care coverage for all Americans. They have run three bills through the U.S. House committees and one through the Senate committees. In the Senate, amendments have been proposed that would require all senators who vote for the ultimate bill that may come to the floor be covered under that bill rather than the great program they are currently in. Since both the House and Senate bills are requiring a “public option” (government takeover) nobody in the Senate has signed on to be covered with those bills.

Isn’t that curious? If the bills were written with all us citizens in mind, why does the Congress reject them for themselves and all government employees, elected or hired or appointed? Could it be “do as I say, not as I do-ism”?
