Deadline for Democrats on Obamacare Exemptions for Staffers

Will top Democrats in Congress choose to exempt their staffs from Obamacare? 

Today is the deadline for Beltway lawmakers to decide whether to grant an exemption to the staffs of congressional committees. House Republicans have all opted to submit themselves and their staffs to the costly provisions of the law. Senate Democrats are split on this issue and their choice could become an issue in next year’s elections. 

Not likely to make headway but the principle is there, Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and some Republicans are pushing a constitutional amendment forbidding Congress from exempting itself from any laws it passes. 

Aren't we all as citizens entitled to equal protection and equal application of laws for the better or worse?
