Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare

quote:

- Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare's architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law's new exchanges.


quote:

Reid is the exception among the other top congressional leaders. GOP House Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have all directed their staffs to join the exchange, their aides said.

WTF! I can see Dems ordering their staff to join in a system THEY created...but not Republicans. If I was on Boehnor's staff...I'd resign and cause a stink if he even threated an ultimatum.

Both Boehnor and McConnel are getting primaried anyway. Good!

McConnell has a slight chance, but Boehnor won't. He is going to coast.

We are an oligarchy and have been for some time. Get used to that truism.

re: Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare
What I have yet to understand is why staffers aren't covered under the Congressional plan. They are employees of the federal gubmint. Shouldn't they get covered under the fedgov group coverage? Why are they treated as non-employees?

He is using what can be considered to exective privilege for his staff. A nuke would do DC good for the country as a whole with just government "employees" in the city for the day.

re: Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare
I watched way more Fox News than usual tonight. On Hannity, (which I watched to see the Rand Paul fix Detroit segment.) They also had a segment on this thread's subject. I am actually sad and disappointed that the republican reps went on and on about Reid exempting his staff. Without getting into the fact that all of them are getting specialized -above the fray- treatment choosing their health care.

I'm thinking of running for Senate on the platform that I want federal health insurance.

Top donors can become my "staffers."

re: Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare

No, lol not Reid. He and most dems are untrustworthy.

Folks like Blackburn,Paul,Cruz,Lee. They are all going to act appalled by Reids actions but are not speaking clearly about their own special treatment.

For Congress, healthcare plans remain a notch above - latimes.com

re: Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare
Oh yeah I know what you are saying now....Its a bunch of political posturing. I so want to believe in Cruz and Lee and Rand. I just haven't seen the level of belief to sacrifice from anyone up there. Its like a black hole. I guess my whole view now is blow shite up like Cruz did and see what happens. I still believe he wants the right thing...

It is more than posturing. Is the LATimes article accurate? Probably so. The republicans and democrats need to make a full disclosure on their specialized VIP healthcare that is not like the rest that get care from the ACA-Obamacare market place.

This is a much bigger deal than some think. It maybe a final straw, if the rates for insurance go up as predicted. Harry with pay the price for others loosing re-election.

re: Some Reid staffers exempt from Obamacare

Not if they bus in voters from state to state. The dead ones and illegals. Unless the Obama team changed their minds. The Obama machine has been sold to the democratic party for the midterm elections. (Someone said the other day this deal to the dems did not go through-so I don't know where it stands now?)
