Congress Exempt from their own Health Care Plan

Interesting read today from the Investor’s Business Daily.  The editorial brings up the more -than-somewhat curious point that Congress will not be subject to the public health care plan that they are presenting.  Here’s my favorite line of the editorial:

The irony here is that under the health reform he is sponsoring, it is unlikely that Sen. Ted Kennedy would have gotten the treatment he needed for his brain tumor if his case had to be reviewed by some cost-effectiveness board.
The likelihood is that if Ted Kennedy were British and subject to the tender mercies of that nation’s National Health System, he’d be dead by now.
