The National Treasury Employees Union is urging its members to oppose legislation that would force federal employees off their government healthcare plans and onto the state and national healthcare exchanges established under Obamacare.

Members of Congress and their staffers are already required to participate in the exchanges, which will go into effect next October 1st under the Affordable Care Act.

However, a bill (HR 1780) introduced in April by Rep. David Camp (R–Mich.) would extend that requirement to all federal employees, an idea that does not sit well with the union.

So NTEU is strongly urging its members—including the Internal Revenue Service agents tasked with implementing Obamacare—to oppose Camp’s legislation, which would compel them to personally participate in the same healthcare program they will be enforcing. …

This is hilarious.

and sickening.

Our overlords and their enforcers are going to be exempted from the laws they force the rest of us to obey.

Oh come on. They were going to be exempt in public anyway; but probably found out they really weren’t. Communism affects everyone.

republicans are effing morons.

we have some who are sellouts.

we have some who are just stupid.

we’have some who are happy to suport this crap.

we have some who have no ability to see the big picure danger of all this garbage.

we have many who can’t figure out what to fight for first, and fight to the death for.

we have many who don’t have any firm reason for believing anything and just think it’s all politics.

we are so screwed if we believe these knobs can get their act together and do something they know would save the country. they don’t care about saving the damn country.

Last I heard the administrative and judicial branches made themselves exempt from Obamacare.

There was a video of a committee asking “why”. I thought. I could be mistaken.

Better yet, nothing should be done with anything other than repeal, repeal, repeal. All the way back to Article I, Section 8.

All federal employees should be forced on to ObamaCare... if it was possible to force all MSM reporters on to ObamaCare we should do that too...

With the IRS in charge of Taxation and Obama’care,’ the wealth and health of the LEGAL citizens of the United States of America will become totally controlled by corrupt politicians at the Federal level, IOW, we will be a Communist State.

We need to create as much civil disobedience as legally possible, because our sorry Congressional RINOs will not Impeach Obama for violations of the US Constitution, Anti-Trust Laws, Cowardice in the face of the enemy, or Dereliction of Duty.

Commie Obama will succeed ONLY if the RINO enablers allow him to do so.

Communist Tyrant B. Hussein Obama has no intention of allowing the US Congress to interfere with Obama’s selective implementation of the Anti-Trust violations of Obama’care.’

Those who vote to fund Obama’care’ are thus Communist enablers, pure and simple.

Commie Obama will use HIS Bureaus, HIS Executive Orders, and HIS Military to “preserve, protect and defend” his Commune-Style, Communist Obama’care’ in order to insure the complete financial destruction of The United States of America, and thus fulfill his first Inaugural vow to “Fundamentally change the United States of America.”
