Two-Tier Health Care Systems

I was initially opposed to the growing number of people who demanded Congress and the President must enroll in whatever government run health care is passed, but I've come around to that point of view after reading about the poor fellow in England who died of thirst in his hospital bed -- even after he called the police for help getting a drink.  But as James Lewis says, it shouldn't be just Congress and the President who have to enroll in ObamaCare, it should be all federal and state employees, without exception:

In Britain, Gordon Brown does not go to his local NHS clinic to get substandard medical care, nor does he go to the scandalously dirty hospitals in the Midlands. In Brussels, the European Union bureaucrats would just sneer at medical care for ordinary folks. They get nothing but the best. That hypocrisy is all over the American ruling left as it is emerging today

More and more "no" votes in Congress seem to be bending to "yes" as the back-door bribery continues.  Will the newest bribes ever be written down like the Senate care bribes were?  I doubt it.  If ObamaCare passes, we may start out with fine health care because we currently have fine health care -- but down the road, how long will it be until we, too, have people dying of thirst in hospital beds while those who pass this bill (against the clear will of the voters) get tender loving care in spa-like Congressional hospitals?
