Who are the 'essential' personnel?

November 7, 2013

Our Congressman get to decide which of their staff is “essential.”  By doing so those whom they decide are “essential” become exempt from Obamacare.

If that is the case, why can’t all of us decide if we are “essential” or not and declare ourselves exempt from Obamacare?
