Lawmakers and staff can breathe easy their health care tab is not going to soar next year.
The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, will issue a ruling that says the government can continue to make a contribution to the health care premiums of members of Congress and their aides, according to several Hill sources.
A White House official confirmed the deal and said the proposed regulations will be issued next week.

Let this stand and we might as well be slaves. They pass legislation to control every aspect of our lives, spy on us and even kill us at will and there is no outrage? We placidly go along and allow this to continue?
The end of the republic came and no one noticed - they were too busy watching American Idol. Holder was right; we ARE a nation of cowards. Cowards for not cleaning house of these would-be despots.
Well, if the law does not apply to them - in clear violation of the wording - then it applies to no one. They can take DeathCare and put it where the sun don’t shine. RESIST!
And to the NSA trolls, FU.
We can all rejoice. The Chosen have been spared any discomfort.
ObamaCare: “Yep, we get to make this sh!t up as we go along.”
The Overlords have been kind to their minions and enforcers.
Looking out for the few while screwing over the many.
That is Obama’s Hope and Change.
How do they get around a “Tax” that everyone else must pay?
Didn’t the SCOTUS rule that Obamacare is a tax?
It’s not about paying a tax. It’s about there being no legal way for the Congress, as an employer, to pay a portion of the healthcare premiums of its employees.
A flaw in the law.
Of course, this administration doesn’t bother with things like the law.
We all knew this would happen so I’m not surprised, but Congress should resign in shame and disgrace.
This is one of the darkest ages in our short history.
Ah, but a direct tax w/out apportionment is unConstitutional; as are all the waivers, favors, etc.
2nd, as gov’t does not create its own $$, only that which is taxed from We the People, We the People are their employers.
Not that you’ll heard any anti- from the current GOP crowd....
