Just Called Sen. Reid's office about Obamacare exemption for Congress(vanity)
August 8, 2013 | Self

Posted on 08/08/2013 8:07:24 AM PDT by katieanna

This is to inform that I just called Reid's office to ask when they will exempt the people from Obamacare as they have exempted themselves. The staffer said to me "We are not exempted from the law ma'am. We are obligated to the same rules as the everyone else ok". I then said to him "So are you telling me the news reports I am reading are not accurate"? He responded "most of the reporting is false, yes. Have yourself a good day." I called him a liar and hung up the phone.

You all can do what you wish, but, it would be great if the office of that arrogant lying man could be flooded with calls today.

Mark Levin said the other night that the Pubbies and Dems have CALLED A TRUCE over this! Both were terrified of “staff retention issues” so they have agreed to shovel, shut up and ‘move on’.

As if you aren’t outraged enough out there.

if i remember right, they voted to subsidize the healthcare, not exempt themselves.

i’d make another call, but this time ask when your healthcare subsidy is coming, because - i am assuming - you make less than the average staffer in congress, and if they can’t make enough to pay for obamacare, how they expect the rest of us to pay for it and make enough to live, is beyond me.

i think this explains how truly awful obamacare is right here, and what a blatant lie the whole ‘savings’ angle for the average person, ie everyone, is.

re: “if i remember right, they voted to subsidize the healthcare, not exempt themselves.”

Yes! That’s exactly what has happened. I can’t help but think that when it actually comes time for all of this to take effect, that they will somehow be exempted from all of this - with another waiver in some form or another.

“...will exempt the people from Obamacare as they have exempted themselves...”

This shameful manoeuver is a giant step toward creating an elitist, seperate class outside and above the law.

“O” is making a concerted effort to set up an apartheid arrangement for SOME citizens while thrusting the expense for their maintenance on everyone ELSE.

This ‘model’ of inequity and privelige is not new! It was rejected, first by the American colonists. THEN it was rejected and with ruinous results by a bloody revolution from which there has NOT been full recovery, when the French rejected the Bourbons.

I sent an e-mail to my local Senators asking if it was true they had exempted themselves. Then I said, “If it is true” and proceeded to blast them, especially the Congress Critters who had voted for Obamacare.

LOL. The Dems never keep a deal on anything. I will LMAO when the kenyan rubs this backroom deal in the beltway GOPers faces in the fall. The Stupid Party just never learns. They get nothing from the Dems for free. I guarantee you we will be hearing a lot about this in the fall.

The upper ruling elite class has spoken. The people shall eat $h!t.

The ruling class lives high off the hog while the ordinary slobs go out and work and give up 40% of their pay to feed the ruling elite and the low-information a$$holes who vote for them.

Democrats....lie....lie.....lie!!!

And with just a few exceptions, so do Republicans.

I'm usually not one to quote Ralph Nader, but he called the Democrats and Republicans Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum. Nader was on the right track, except that Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum were not shameless, greedy liars.

The last person who had a shot to turn this around was Sarah Palin. Too late now. Ah, what might have been...

IllumiNaughtyByNature ~:" Yes, they are under the law but they got waivers and subsidies.

In legalese English , the spokesman was correct ;
they are not exempt, they are subsidized by their employer --> US ,..the taxpayer !
It's too bad that Congress isn't all "part-timers" , like all of the 'new jobs' which Obama found.
The nation's Founding Fathers were "part timers ", and as a result ,
they were "STATESMEN " , rather than "POLITICIANS"
because they still had to EARN AN INCOME , and had to face the people on a daily baisis,
rather than hide in Washington, or Philly, or New York City.

Maybe we should make all Congress "part timers" and then they would represent the people , rather than vested special interest groups.

Interesting angle. The employees are dictating the terms to the employers. So we now know who really runs Congress. Or is this just the cover story.

I think you are on to something there. Staffers actually write these bills, and for all we know, cast electronic votes while their bosses are off hitting the bar or a brothel or something.

All animals are equal, but those with relatives in,
or who sufficiently service or payoff US Congressmen,
are much more equal than others, and will therefore live.
The rest must prepare to die.

Hate to rock your boat but that elitist class was established long ago.Data from the 2010 Census show that four of the five,and seven of the ten,richest counties in the nation are suburbs not of NYC,Chicago,LA or San Francisco but of Washington DC.

Similar to a $4 check you get from your share of a class action lawsuit. Where the attorneys get the millions.

my guess is they will point at businesses that haven’t joined the govt exchanges but still have “good” - relative term - plans, and say that in order to retain the best people - like certain key private businesses - they too need to offer cadillac plans out of the exchanges.

I believe some libtard already has this excuse drawn up waiting to go. Initials VJ...

And you thought Beyonce was just singing bout her own va j j ... nope she’s siging about jarrett.

Now that Obama has promised them their subsidy, the staffers are now asking for this to be extended for their lifetime.

Moreover, since their health care plan can be considered as a “Cadillac plan”, they want the Cadillac plan fine (e.g., $5K per year) to be waived as well ... forever.
