Democratic Congressman: 'Simply Not Fair' To Subject Congress To Obamacare
A massive injustice has been inflicted upon the Congress, and at least one brave Democrat is calling it “simply not fair.” What is this scourge upon Washington? Obamacare.
Undoubtedly, John Larson represents many of his fellow Congressmen on the Grassley Amendment to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act when he blasted the cruel prospect of being subjected to its restrictions:
“I think we should begin an immediate amicus ["friend of the court"] brief to say, ‘Listen this is simply not fair to these employees.’ They are federal employees.”
What the American people needed was a ‘friend of the court’ when the Obamacare debacle was laughably called ‘constitutional’ based on an imaginative interpretation by Justice John Roberts.
Furthermore, Democrats should have read the bill and voted it down to begin with. Not a single Republican voted for it and the House GOP have attempted to repeal the bill 36 times.
