Mixed reports on this tonight and I have not found it on FR so far. Heritage seems credible. Politico broke the story. If the SOBs are making excuses, and they are, it sounds likely this is true though they are already denying it.

It is time for pitchforks if true... past time.

They also quietly repealed the prohibition against their insider trading.

Once upon a time, in an easier going and more free country, we would go for weeks at a time without hearing a single story on congress or the president. Now it is a daily onslaught. The nation is unhinged.

The nation needs an enema! We’re well within our Constitutional rights to stand up and take action against an out of control govt.

Are you sure about that? Nancy Pelosi should be in jail for her insider trading scam. Criminal!

I thought congressional exemption was built into Obamacare from the beginning... along with the exemptions for muslims, unions, and everyone else.

Come to think of it, is there anyone left that is not exempt?

They’ve been granting waivers now for the past 4 years.

Has anyone bothered re-calculating what percentage of the population is left that is not exempt???

Has anyone bothered re-figuring what the non-exempt will have to pay now because so many others will not have to?

At what point does Obamacare classify as a law which re-enacts slavery?

Can’t really blame them, after all they don’t know what’s in it!

i think the house bill (read it a long time ago, now)exempted these oh so pharisee leavened political hacks, but since they had to adopt the senate bill without reconciliation (due to the extreme pressure exerted by the tea party), they probably couldn’t get their own exemptions back into the bill. and now they all (i.e., the d.c. party) need to get their healthcare taken care of at our expense. hypocrites.

anyway, clearly the only way things will change at the national level is with a new Conservative Party of America.

Pitchforks? ! Hell, its time for hot tar and feathers, followed immediately by torches. Or maybe we can be merciful and just use rifles.

Well, they passed it so they could find out what was in it.

I guess now that the RATs have had people who can read. tell them what was in it...they didn’t like what they found.

They apparently don’t want to exempt themselves from Obamacare, just exempt themselves from paying for it...

Today’s Politico reports that the House and Senate congressional leadership—both Democrats and Republicans working in cahoots with Obama Administration officials—have been secretly negotiating for months trying to find a way to exempt Members of Congress and their staffs from being forced into Obamacare’s health insurance exchanges.

Ha!

Scumbags.

They passed it, it’s OK for the proles but they don’t like it for themselves.
Way to go critters! That pretty much conclusively confirms what we think.

As a postscript (past my bedtime) I meant to include: I don’t have the numbers, but I don’t think they really do either, for now. They’re still ginning-up the (new, improved & friendly!) IRS to make sure we comply.

But like pornography—’I know it when I see it’—I can recognize a massive Solyndra-like Ponzi scheme when I see it. It’s simply unsustainable. Too much dead-weight in the wagon and not enough horses.
What should make Americans the angriest, I think, is that they know it too.
