Townhall;CONGRESS EXEMPTS ITSELF FROM OBAMACARE Rate Shock As Americans Face Skyrocketing Premiums
Katie Pavlich | Aug 02, 2013
As everyday Americans face healthcare premium rate shock thanks to Obamacare, Congress and their staffs have just been exempted from having to pay thousands of dollars in extra cash for their healthcare next year. How? Their plans are being heavily subsidized by taxpayers. More from POLITICO:
Lets break this down: First, lawmakers on the Hill voted for a terrible bill that a majority of people didn't want. Now three years later, those same lawmakers have exempted themselves from Obamacare rate shock in order to save their own wallets while the rest of America suffers from skyrocketing healthcare premiums. Don't worry though, Nancy Pelosi is reassuring everyone that Congress and their staffs will have to enroll in Obamacare exchanges, they just won't be paying for it.
Ironically, lawmakers were concerned a jump in premiums for their staff would kill jobs on the Hill.
To make things worse, despite the Obama administration delaying parts of Obamacare for corporations while individuals pay a heavy price for a piece of legislation that isn't ready for primetime, cowards on both sides of aisle don't have the guts to defund the bill in its entirety.
As a reminder, more people than ever want Obamacare repealed and a majority disapprove of the law.
Keep working America, Washington is depending on you.
Thank You Ms Pavlich and Townhall.
Being a Low Information Voter proves itself yet again, to be a damn fool idea.
