Many on Capital Hill Fear Obamacare Will Lead to Brain Drain
Wall St. Cheat Sheet ^ | June 15, 2013 | Meghan Foley

It is not just the man on the street who is worried his health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year when the full load of the Affordable Care Act’s provisions go into effect. Dozens of lawmakers and their aides are so worried their health insurance will reach unmanageable levels that they are thinking about retiring early, or even just quitting. Obamacare’s mandates will cause their government-subsidized premiums to disappear at the end of this year.

Hard to say what is the bigger irony: the idea there are brains to drain on Capitol Hill or the fact those brains wrote and approved this legislative abortion.

I pray they are hurt worst of all by obozocare.

Good. It’s time the parasites had to get REAL jobs.

Oh wait, the parasites destroyed private enterprise. Oh well, they’ll just have to get by on food stamps.

Do they fear it enough to repeal it? Doesn’t look that way, does it.

The original "Brain Drain" occurred in UK when socialized medicine went into effect there. That's why you can't find an English-speaking doctor anywhere in England and people die of thirst lying in hospital beds.

They’re all talk. They just make noises but don’t dare cross the line.

True, and there's a revolving door between govt and companies that exist to serve govt. That's why many of the wealthiest counties in the US are in the beltway region. Most of these folks that leave will get significant raises.

What's the down side? Sounds like win-win-win-win to the Nth to me.

No it won't, all of the doctors will be replaced with low cost immigrants through the upcoming amnesty program. Better brush up on your foreign languages if you want to understand what your doctor tells you, and hope your pharmacist gets it right.

Total BS. Massive numbers of people are flocking to the beltway because Uncle Sugar is where the money is and career opportunities are.

A “brain drain” from Congress? Oh, puh-leeze. What rubbish.

The country would be far better off with a 50% turnover every Congressional cycle.

Actually, it was the liberal governments with taxation up the wazoo in the 60’s that caused a brain drain far more reaching than just in medicine. They lost engineers, technical people, the wealthy and talented (including the Beatles and Stones) in that era. Frankly, if I was younger, I’d be looking towards this sort of thinking myself.

Their brains have long since been drained there on the Hill. Nothing left. The REAL intelligence is found among the American people — the ones who make the country run! Only the stupidest and dimmest bulbs are constantly trying to convince others of their superior intelligence. Those who are intelligent have nothing to prove.

Huh? Meaning the government won't be subsidizing Obamacare? That's how the sentence reads, but I doubt that will happen. They'll just print the money they need.

No doubt. Or as the founding fathers intended - for them to have real jobs back home and come to DC intermittently.

Thanks grundle.

See? It was the Democratic Party who voted *in favor* of health care equality. /s

We wouldn’t have Obamacare if there had not been a brain drain in Congress first.
