    Mr Obama is giving a press conference tonight about his health care plan.
    Do you think anybody will actually ask him any hard questions?
    What question would you like to ask him?

    That's what I am guessing to.

    I would like to ask Obama the following question, on national TV, during the press conference. Here is my question:

    Q: Mr. President. Shouldn't there be an amendment in your health care bill that requires all elected government employees, including yourself, to immediately be enrolled into the health care bill that is passed by Congress and it be illegal to obtain your medical care in any other means that is not stipulated in this bill or by any means that is not specifically outlined by this bill?

    People are not going to be forced to take on this health care policy so I'm not sure why you want to force others to do so. Especially when you speak out against making citizens take on this health care plan. Hypocrite.

    Perhaps you don't understand.
    If the health care plan is good enough for an inner city child, why isn't it good enough for Mr Obama? What makes him or any congressman any better, or more worthy of some other health care plan?

    It's not about being worthy, it's about freedom of choice based on what you can afford really. Why not stop there? Why not force the rich? Why not force everybody to get the same plan than? It's a snarky smart alec of a question but the place it leads to is one that the person asking it is against.

    I do realize it was a smartass question in the first place. But you're not getting the irony in the person asking it.

    Edit: Obama just basically answered the question you wanted to know.

    It's about choice, then why I do I not have a choice, why am I being forced to pay for somebody that can't afford it? Where the hell is my choice?
    The more I have to pay for somebody else, the less choice I have to spend for myself.
