So, that means it’d be kind of a “Tea Party Arnold Palmer”, right?
Sorry, bad joke.
Interesting proposal, though. And yes, someone in DC would really have to ‘grow a pair’ to introduce this.

("Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered..."-Thomas Paine. 1776)
The same “healthcare” i.e. Obamacide, that the politicians in Washington foisted on the nation, before reading the bill and by trickery and political maneuvering, shall be the the same for ALL citizens, including those in the House, Senate and any Federal Government employee. Something needs to be done about other ‘rewards’ for serving one day in office as well (pensions, perks, etc.). Anyone leaving in disgrace, forced to resign, etc. loses it ALL.
Well, since we're talking taxes now, the GOP needs to include a tax cut as it pertains to obamacare. The tax, for that is what Traitor Roberts has ruled it to be, for failure to engage in compulsory commerce with a health insurance company shall not exceed a one dollar federal reserve note (currently worth about 2 cents).
And that's my two cents.

I like #1. Toss the Elected Federal Officials and ALL Federal personnel into SS and Medicare, plus under-65 into Obamacare. Add Union Pension Funds and their healthcare to the "pot". I have a strange feeling our "Lords on the Potomac" would not care for that at all, but it would be fun to watch the fireworks.

Remember for years ‘they’ told us “We need a raise, it is hard to attract good candidates and Govt Employees if we don’t pay them VERY well and give some good benefits”.
I am sure glad WE agreed that the caliber of candidates was ‘bad’ without MORE MONEY, we may have gotten stuck with some real losers in high positions.
One needs a license to do most anything in this country, even armed robbers have apprenticeships BUT all it requires to be a pol is fooling (buying) enough people into voting for you.
“Cheer up. Things could be worse”.
So, I cheered up and sure enough, they got worse.
