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They also quietly repealed the prohibition against their insider trading.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.
News to me. I thought they had already exempted themselves.
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!
This is news? “One law for me, another for thee” is standard among Our Betters.
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.
That makes me wanna run for Congress.
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...
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.
Well of course! They want to be exempt from every damn thing they force down the common Citizens throat. Thugs, one and all!!!!!
They signed it before they read it. They should EAT every dagumed page with an Obama pile between the sheets!
*ahem*... so to speak.
Gee, who DIDN'T see this coming?? If it's such a great system, why WOULDN'T they want in on it!?
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.
hopefulyl we can get a republican presdient next term with enough backbone and get enough senators with backbones to pass a mandate outlawing universal health care forever
