Congress has exempted itself from a public option

Does this surprise anybody? I mean, really?

The White House insists that Congress has not exempted itself; but if it hasn't, then why was Rep. Dean Heller's (R-NV) amendment -- which "would have required Members to be covered by the Public Option plan if they approve it for private citizens" -- defeated in the House Ways and Means Committee, with all 21 Democrats voting against it?

Looks like the administration's insistence along these lines is much the same as healthcare reform "bringing costs down," "giving people more choices," and "giving people better care." In other words, pure bunk.
