Even the people set to serve in Barack Obama’s cabinet apparently don’t like ObamaCare.

It’s a bit like the old Democratic congressiona trick of not applying new regulations to Congress. Too expensive, of course!

It turns out that President Barack Obama’s supporters—at least those rich or important or influential enough to serve in his Cabinet—apparently don’t much like ObamaCare. Too expensive, of course!

Communal Nationalized Medical Dispensation
Requires Mandatory Mass Taxation.
Anti Competition means that Private Practice cannot be.
So the Constitution and Anti-Trust are in the way,
Just pay off Traitor John Roberts,
And America’s death knell, Obama”care,” is here to stay.

If the Obama family is racking up $7M annually in health care costs, how much are We the People forking over for the cabinet and others exempt from Obamacare?

Another Question: If the entire cabinet is exempt from Obamacare, doesn't this mean Sebelius is exempt from her own regulations? If this is true the conservatives ought to start hitting hard about the blatant hypocrisy here. If it isn't good enough for Obama and his HHS secretary writing all the rules, it isn't good enough for those of us who pay their salaries!

Typical “rules for thee but not for me” liberal. Obamacare sounds good and she got a lot of praise for advocating it. And she got to feel good for “doing something” for the poor. But then when it came down to it, there was no way in Hell she was going to live by those rules herself.

I still can’t understand how people can still worship this guy. Especially the poor.

According to section 1312 of the law, in 2014 Congress has to buy their coverage on an exchange. That doesn't mean Sebellius won't give them gravy train rules for their exchange. But I think it's a myth that members of congress are exempt. Some federal employees are exempt but I don't pretend to know who all of them are.

In the end it won’t matter much. When the govt takeover of healthcare is complete (and of course this is the endgame as we all know) then if you’re a part of the Nomenclatura you will *always* be able to cut in front of any and all lines - be they food, consumer goods, healthcare, little girls, little boys, you name it. That’s the system that they envision and who in hell is going to stop them?

Foreign service people serving abroad ~ they're exempt ~ but they still get their insurance through commercial programs administered by FEHB. The reason a state exchange won't work for foreign service is pretty obvious.

Nobody has told me FEHB is going out of business though ~ and it's supposed to be the model for the state exchanges anyway. There's also a federal law that says my benefit ~ FEHB ~ cannot be reduced since I was transferred from the defunct POD to USPS. I was kinda' hoping for a reason to sue their butts off if you want to know. Could use some more taxpayers money in my billfold!
