Well, will the dems and the WH use the same ACA to get their medical?

Senate GOP proposals would force Obama into health law exchanges - The Hill's Healthwatch

Doubful, but lets see if they are willing to do this. If not, well then it just shows they think they are better than all of us.....

Those are the leaders, they should lead by example, right?

I'm sure the White House will go along - it's the politically correct thing to do. In fact, as stated in the article you linked to:

After the Affordable Care Act passed, the White House said Obama would enroll in an exchange once the time came in 2014.
And of course Congress will participate in the health exchanges (they wrote themselves into the law, the only group specifically named in the legislation as being required to participate).

But that's all for show. All federal workers are eligible to participate in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, and the plans offered there will comply with the requirements in the Affordable Care Act. Both the White House and Congress could just stay with FEHB, but it wouldn't "look" good.

Personally, I wish they would all spend more time working and less time trying to look good.
