Congress Exempt from Obamacare in Last-Minute Deal
CBN News ^ | 5 Aug 13 | CBN

Senators, representatives, and their top aides will be able to stay under the current subsidized health care system.

That means they will continue to get a taxpayer-funded contribution to help pay for their health care premiums.

A last-minute deal worked out before Congress went on their five-week summer vacation gets lawmakers out of the original language of Obamacare, which said members and their aides had to use its health care plans.

Republicans like Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana slammed the move, calling it a "behind-closed-doors deal, announced right after Congress is safely away from the crime scene."

"This is exactly why America rightly hates Washington," Vitter charged. "Obamacare's a train wreck, even for Congress. So it gets fixed -- for Congress only. What the flip about fixing it for America?"

Not hearing much from Reps per this makes you wonder.
Each of us need to ask our Rep specifically about this, by message , phone call to their local office or at a townhall .

Well, the simple solution would be to fire them all, every single one of them, and put into place people who will actually dismantle this unsustainable, un-Constitutional mandate once and for all...

What folks need to understand is the only reason the SCOTUS, and John Roberts went along on this was that they recognized that this system was simply another tax on the people, therefore it IS something, if the representatives and senators had any balls would dismiss this tax/law, and we could simply move on...

But no one seems to have the balls to do so...Therefore, the only option is a big Testosterone Bomb being dropped in air-burst mode on their collective heads...

All kidding aside...When things like this happen, why we are not absolutely scaring the hell out of these people when they come back to their districts is beyond me...

Liberal/Fabian Socialist Democrats, and Feckless Republican elitist need to be shown the door...No matter how much you may, or may not like them...They are ALL complicit in this situation, and they need to be held accountable for this debacle!!!

Just my opinion...

Well, it really is a simple solution to this...

It is the ultimate gut-check question, rhetorical in nature not requiring an answer in a publically monitored forum like this...

“What are YOU prepared to do about this??? And, what are you prepared to sacrifice for that to occur???”

Remember, our legacy we leave for the future of this country ALWAYS rests in OUR hands, not these temporary representatives who the people elect that are doing these things to debilitate this country...

The guys who started this experiment, didn’t just stand around talking BS to hear themselves speak...They later went to the pubs, tossed back a few with their buds who listened to their orations, whether they agreed with each other was a moot point at that time, but when all was said and done they realized one thing...

They ALL went home and with their families spent the rest of their evenings making musket balls...

They knew a fight was coming...Why is it so hard to comprehend this eventuality???

Sure, some would like to avoid that, but the other side of this equation IS hedging their bets that we will not fight...They believe no one has the guts to face them, to sacrifice their lives to correct this problem...Those very representatives believe you and I are cowards!!! When they themselves prove to us every single day that they are political cowards...

Chew on this for a while, think about how important your liberties are, and others around you!!! Think, then be prepared to act!!!

They are only in the setup phase of the plan/agenda...When the hammer starts falling, and people in general are not able to sustain this government and its out of Constitutional boundaries activities, then what do we do??? Wait for the time when we can no longer effect political change at the polls??? When elections don’t mean anything anymore???

That’s too late!!!

These are just my opinions!!! I am only one person, I still engage in the fight from being informed, informing others, and doing things within the political party that still has a smidge of credibility left, and those that I do trust, are extremely outnumbered...Time to give them some backup!!!

We ALL know what we got to do...WE just need to explain what we expect of those wishing to represent us and our expectations are absolute, non-negotiable, and they serve us at our tolerance...

The need to be politically nice and cordial IS LONG GONE!!!
