Whether you realize it or not, that is what is taking place. One set of rules for the elite, but a different set for average Joe Americans - they get no one-year exemption, or a Congressional exemption.
With all of this in mind, is it no wonder that Obama, Reid, Pelosi and cowardly Republicans are causing Americans to say to h e double l with it all, and leading some like Cruz, Paul, Lee, Palin and others to take a stand and fight for us?
Some people say we need to get back to a 1776 type of thinking. But the problem may be more severe — we may have to re-visit 1215.
Reid keeps saying over and over and over again, “It’s the law (ObamaCare)”
Bull. If he believed that, then he would be against some being above the law.
WAIT till the news breaks that ODUNGO has cut a deal with the unions after all.....ask yourself, why have the unions suddenly gone silent?
I am not going to do what my public SERVANTS tell me I must do.
The Union deal is just waiting for the funding to be complete. Guaranteed. Maybe some Union members could question their leadership and when they say don’t worry about it we know the fix is in.
The Magna Carta was in response to violations of the 1100 Charter of Liberties which stated Kings were not above the law. This goes back almost a thousand years.
Apparently Obamacare trumps all.
So sayeth the self-appointed elites.
Laws aren’t meant for the ruling class. They are for peasants like you and me.
He may be the catalyst we've been waiting for.
I have written to my senator - Debbie Stabenow of MI - asking if it was true that Congress and congressional employees are excempt from Obamacare. Her response from Sept. 18, 2013, says in part: “Under Section 1312 of the law...Members of Congress and their staff will no longer have access to the Federal Employee Health Plan. Instead, they will sign up with an insurance co. that provides coverage through the new insurance marketplaces in the law...Section 1312 did not explain how the federal govenment would interact with the new insurance marketplaces. In re., the OPM carified how members of Congress and their staff will purchase insurance through the exchange, and also prohibited (them) from being eligible for health care tax credits.” Is her letter a complete lie? Am I missing something in it that does not deny the exemption?
If it's good enough for us...WHY NOT THEM!
Any Idiot Low Information Voter can understand this!
Fearing a “brain drain” of Congressional staffers, subsidies were given them. IOW, some federal employees would weasel their way out of having to get on the exchanges.
so we now have titles of nobility aka cronyism
