Why shouldn’t they choose “Gold”? It’s taxpayer funded.
When exactly did the Executive Branch gain authority over Congressional members and staffing rules and regulations?
received this email:
CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION.
Before you TEST DRIVE the ObamaCare website, read this post:
From Someone who actually got on the website:
This is a post from the Obamacare web page and not my actual experience:
“I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 “Silver Plan” and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I “opt-out” and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00 P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return.
Then you make it to the “REPERCUSSIONS PORTION” for “non-payment” of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with “Non-Payment” and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy “Automatically withdraw” your “penalties” weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is “Free” or even “Affordable”.
Please post this to local TV outlets and other media-elites...
DONT GET ON THE GESTAPOS LIST. Hold off ‘investigating’ until you know the ramifications which can haunt you the rest of your life.
So let me understand, congresscritters will get to buy a gold level plan (not subsidized for anyone else) and will receive a payment for 75% of the cost? Why wouldn’t that be counted as taxable income? it will be reported on the 2014 W-2.
Term limits are a failure. CA has had term limits since the early 90s. You’re from AZ... do you want the nation to be as “successful” as CA?
Hey, No Problemo. They’ll take the best one then vote themselves a raise in salary to cover the extra cost.
Do they still get the 72% subsidy for it?
Even CONGRESS cannot escape the grip of Obama’s Nanny State.
Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of rubes.
Nanny State PING!
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
I agree with Levin’s plan.. 12 years in the House or Senate total and that’s it. Attach to the term limits amendment (as laid out in the “Liberty Amendments”) that citizens in Congress must not legislate to themselves benefits over and above what any private citizens are eligible for. After all, we are not Communists!
