Congress members and staffers get Obamacare exemption deal

Only the little people must comply

quote:

The White House has approved a deal that will exempt members of Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported late Thursday.


Next thing you know, they'll be able to bounce checks without having to worry about anything...

Isn't it great when laws only apply to some people and not all people.

I feel quite certain that communist countries have similar arrangements.

I've often said on here, follow the 'rules', not the laws.

Law means practically nothing anymore in this country. The real controlling mechanism today are the 'rules' used to implement the laws.

Will there be someone on one of the MSM news shows interview one of these guys and have them to explain this to the American people?

The "haves" in communist countries are government workers. The "have-nots" are the government's subjects, the citizen.

The "haves" in a capitalist system are the producers. The "have-nots" in a capitalists system are the lazy or incapable.

Yeah me too. If this doesn't motivate people to call their congressman and lay into their ass, nothing will.

Glad my betters are going to be taken care of at my expense. I don't want them worried about their medical care when they should be concentrating on their important work.

ANYONE from either party that votes for an incumbent in the next primary is a fool.

17% percent approval rating on display( the sad part isn't that there rating is so low it's that 17% of people still think they're doing a good job). There should be a law against congress giving themselves special favors like this.

People should be happy Fox is around because they will pound this fricking fiasco.

Those fricks in DC are supposed to serve the people who elected them. This is fricking ridiculous.

There was(is).

It's called the Affordable Care Act.

Chuck Schumer himself had the wording implemented in the law that Congress and staffers had to fall under it.

What's that say about anything they say or do?
