One of the biggest public supporters of the Affordable Care Act has reportedly decided that some of his staff should be exempted from the new law.
CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.
Thats right, even House Majority Leader John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who have voted against the healthcare law dozens of times, have told their staff to sign up for insurance plans through the federal exchange.
Yahoo News has reached out to the offices of all 100 U.S. senators to see if any other members have exempted committee staff from the federal exchange. So far, the offices of 42 senators have responded to our inquiry, with 37 saying that the senator and their entire staff will switch over to the exchanges in January.
The offices of Ron Wyden, Tim Johnson, Barbara Boxer, Patty Murray and Thomas Carper, all Democrats, said they were exempting some of their staff. Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, has not responded.

It seems he prefers they not share the pain of his second and lower class citizenry.
A pimp’s gotta look out for his bitches.
The root cause of the American Revolution was over the fact that Britain was passing laws on Americans which the British didn’t have to live under.
If OSHIT care is so great, how come they are all trying to avoid signing up for it themselves. This is maddening. It makes me madder than anything, that they ram this crap onto the citizens, and then exempt themselves.
I hope something happens to give them a come uppence, so that they live to regret their dastardly actions. I’d like to bea able to say well what goes around comes around jerks, or Karma’s a bitch ain’t it?
Yeah, this will work out very well for them in the long run.... Not.
The bloom is off the rose and even the idiot class are waking up to the corruption.
Nice.... I like the way you think.

Something or someone you’re waiting on to fix things aint coming. It is up to us to change things.
“Why the HELL arent people MARCHING ONTO THE CAPITOL??????”
The “people” are just like Germans in the 30s...they are too infected with normalcy bias and too intellectually lazy to admit they have allowed racist, fascist trash to rule their country.
