Congress and Obamacare


Senator Grassley (R-IA) successfully offered an amendment to the Obamacare bill that required Congress and the Congressional staff to be offered insurance plans only from those created by Obamacare or the state exchanges.

Opps.

Now that Congress is in the unusual position of not being exempt from a law, panic is setting in. You see, under the present plans, Congresscritters, Senators, and staff receive a substantial subsidy as federal employees. Under the “Affordable Care Act,” they have to pay retail. Politico reports that sticker shock is causing many staffers and some Congresscritters to consider other employment.

Hubris, meet Nemesis.

  1. ‘Bout time Congress has to live under the same laws the rest of us do. Oh and next time guys, find out what’s in it BEFORE you vote to pass it. You won’t have nearly as many nasty surprises like this one.
