Hypocrisy: Democrats Reject House Bill Removing Obamacare Exemption for Congress
On Monday afternoon, the Democratic Senate rejected the House’s funding bill that would have eliminated the federal subsidies allowing politicians and their staffers to avoid the implications of Obamacare.
Obama administration officials are not subject to the health care exchanges; while Congress members and their staffers are forced to join the exchanges, but are federally subsidized. Representative Darrell Issa said that the House would attempt to pass a bill requiring all Obama administration officials to sign up for healthcare on the state exchanges.
We’re all sure the mainstream media will report the Democrats’ refusal to live by the implications of their own law and their unwillingness to protect the American people from the worst aspects of it. While the Republicans are offering to go onto the exchanges themselves, and Ted Cruz is donating his salary to charity to show good faith, the Democrats are fleeing from Obamacare.
