      ...if the Potus and Congress were "forced" to have a policy under ObamaCare, they could afford the Platinum Plan which is super. What's the problem?...

        very similar to Obamacare. They choose from amongst many plans. The difference is for staff, as their incomes make them eligible for subsidies, at least many of them. The subsidies under Obamacare aren't as generous as their employer (the federal government) offers. So while other federal employees have maybe 80% of their premium paid, staffers would be held to whatever percentage Obamacare allows for their income. It's really not fair to congresscritters either, but most of them are in a financial position to absorb the difference. And they voted for it. Note: Obamacare was supposed to be for people who didn't already have access to affordable health insurance plans.
