Skip to comments.Obama Promises to Help Congressional Staffers Avoid Obamacare
Posted on 08/01/2013 10:36:52 PM PDT by chessplayer
Washington has been abuzz for months over the fear and loathing that Congressional staffers have for Obamacare. Many staffers and employees on Capitol Hill have been saying they'll have to quit Washington if they are forced into Obamacare. Now the President is promising to fix it all for them.

Ef that! If I can’t get out of it, why should they?!
Ef that! If I cant get out of it, why should they?!
Yep, the whole thing is bull $hit.
No names mentioned, but shall we have a guess.
This is the straw. They do this and it will be hell to pay. They can’t put a nasty law that is screwing up our finances and medical coverage and yet they exempt themselves. Oh no they don’t. Oh hell no.
Why aren’t members of congress, much less their staffers, enrolled into ObamaCare? Why isn’t Obama and his lovely family? All executive branch employees? State, county and municipal bureaucrats? Public school teachers? Answers, please.
Congress is just trying to follow the rule were the captain abandons ship first, like Ted Kennedy with the SS Oldsmobile.
Outrageous!! Corrupt commie bastards!!
Tom Coburn for one. Remember the mega-RINO that stabbed the tea party with the anti-gun vote?
I am shocked at the hypocrisy. Just shocked./s
Time to send every Politico in D.C. a copy of Animal Farm and a copy of 1984. Include a Noose in the package.
Senator Burr (NC) and the Chairman of Way & Means are both against this.
Ditto for Senator Grassley, who wrote the measure that included Congress and its staff.
This is do and die time for the GOP.
Join Senator's Cruz, Lee, Rand Paul and the other Senate PATRIOTS.
Make your calls and blast McCain! No special exemptions for Congress and their staff!
Good (on the so called “brain drain” the dump that would happen would be a Godsend to this country and many of these staffers are as corrupt or even more so than their “Masters”.
Starting over with staff of real people is ONE simple thing that needs to happen in Washington, D.C!!
(Oh and I forgot to add that D.C. doesn’t have any brains they’re practically zombies anyway feeding off the rest of us without producing any real agricultural or manufactured product)!~
I share your anger and fury. I feel the same way. I loathe these slime bags. On the other hand, I am 1,000% cynical of the government. They WILL put out a nasty law that screws up our finances and medical coverage, and they WILL exempt themselves and their cronies. They will do it, because they can, and they WILL get away with it. Odumbo and his rat friends have never been held accountable for anything, why should we think they will be held accountable now? I know, that is cynicism with a capital C, but I just don't think the rats will ever be held accountable. Let me say it again, I utterly, totally, completely, 100% loathe these slime bags. It keeps me warm on cold nights.
Hundreds of outfits have been given exemptions.
SO - how is this ‘equal representation’?
Nah, you don’t have to live like the peasants.
You can thank me now. :D
any republicans who vote to exempt themselves using same lame excuse that they remove obamacare for some ppl and is the first step, need to be removed from office
if lawmakers/staffers do not suffer like the rest of the citizen, there is less incentive to remove it for everyone
This is just great. The democrats, the congress, the government workers, the unions, the leftist non profits, the big democrat corporate boosters and supporters all wanted and pushed for this unAmerican, unconstitutional, communist tyranny and now all want to be exempt while forcing it on the rest us who DO NOT want it and never did. The founders would have been shooting by now!!
Kinda like how only the little people were left locked inside the Titanic, isn’t it.
How does Obama do this anyhow? Is he a dictator, a king? How can he wave his hand and some special few are exempted?
>>Is he a dictator, a king?
More like the mafioso puppet of the Oligarchic Kleptocrats running the Insurance/Pharmaceutical/Investment bidnesses love triangle.
COMMERCE BETWEEN MASTER AND SLAVE IS [still] TYRANNY
McCain, Graham, Snowe, Rubio.
Our Founders would have been shooting by now!!
Just like that witch Pelosi said, "we have to pass it, to know what's in it."
Shame on Chief Justice Roberts! That damn fool neglected to say in his written opinion, that only one party passed the obamanation! It was not the will of the people's representatives!
The communist and Marxist elite should not have to suffer under ObamaCare, right Barry? ObamaCare is for the unwashed masses. Those disgusting, uneducated and ignorant “little people”. Right Barry?
Defund Obamacare!!! “www.dontfundobamcare.com” Sponsored by Senator Mike Lee and Ted Cruz!!! Almost 200,000 signatures in just three days!!! Do it right now!!!
I agree. It's one thing to have something you don't like imposed upon you, yet another to tolerate it while watching someone else get a pass.
Doesn't this mean that just about any citizen could sue under equal protection laws? Certainly, any individual would have standing to bring a case, what with all the exemptions thus far and now this.
I have no confidence that a corrupt legal system, starting with Chief Justice Roberts, can be used to stop this travesty. we have seen how the law can be twisted to support any conclusion. I don't think the existing power structure will allow any successful challenge unless the rulers believe they will be deposed if they don't follow the will of the people.
Everyone contact your representatives and ask that you become unpaid staff members.
He found out early on that no one has the guts to stop him. Congress, GOP, Supreme Court. "We, the People" had a chance last election, but although they hated most of his ideas, they voted for him since he seems like "such a nice guy" To them, anyway.
After one gets past laughing at the assumption they are making that there is a brain to drain in DC, you get to the old saw “none of us is as dumb as all of us.” If half of DC left, I’m pretty sure the collective IQ would increase.
Aside, if they do this and the MSM can find their ballzacs and report it, it might just turn the entire country against DC. Will it change anything? Probably not. Zombies in SFO will still vote for Pelosi because they would never vote for a conservative or Republican. (Have to continue to point out there is a growing difference between the two.)
The river has been crossed by the DNC and IRS
in their treason.
They have NO reason to turn back.
Remember how things worked in the USSR?
I was an Army intelligence analyst during the cold war. What do you think?
“Ef that! If I cant get out of it, why should they?!”
You obviously did not get the memo. We are the serfs, they are they political elite. They have a different set of rules than we do. In a nut shell, their view is that we are sheep to be sheared.
That’s crap! Everyone-should-know-about-this. BUMP
The minions of the overlords want special treatment
Townhalls are going to be most interesting this recess.
I am so mad I can’t even speak...certainly not civilly.
“It is an axiom among many in Congress that if staffers are forced into Obamacare, a “brain drain” will result as key staffers with years of experience will quit and go home to find other work.”
First of all, they are not going anywhere. They are
way too stupid to make it in the real world.
Brain Drain, what a joke. If they are so smart then why didn’t the
“smarter than everyone else” crowd think of this while
they were ramming Obamacare through?
Defund and repeal now!
McCainiac, top of the list.
Second: Little Linda(sey) Graham.
That is exactly who and what we are fighting.
