Skip to comments.Exempted from Obamacare: Senior Staff Who Wrote The Bill
Posted on 03/22/2010 4:18:39 PM PDT by Bell407Pilot
For as long as the political fight took over the past year, the abbreviated review process on the health care legislation currently pending on President Obamas desk is unquestionably going to result in some surprises as happens with any piece of mashed-up legislation both for the congressmen who voted for it and for the American people.

They are trying to deny that this is true and the media is not running with it.
blood pressure rising, blood shooting from eyes, head exploding.
Seems to me that violates the equal protection clause.
"Obamacare is for you stupid taxpayers who live only to serve us
and fill our brothels with your daughters and sons.
Obamacare will NEVER be for our wives,
or mistresses, or staffers, or those we select."

Since it is established that they can have a separate plan from the rest of the country... Perhaps a bill saying members of congress are ineligible for ANY health insurance.
“Elitist Liberal Socialists too good for their own laws.....”
Isn’t that just TOO special...morons...deserve tar, feathers and rails, they do. The lot of ‘em.
TIME MAG today:
The President, however, may be indifferent to the acrid fussing of his Republican foes. He will be able to bask once again in the glow of positive press coverage (accented by a momentous signing ceremony), which will focus on four areas helpful to the Democrats prospects in November: the masterful display of White House patience and competence that got the job done; the elements of the legislation that are in fact consistently popular with large numbers of Americans, such as its insurance-company crackdowns; the return of the meme that Republicans are the party of No; and the accompanying rising poll numbers for the Administration and the new law
Democrats will be joined in the fray by much of the press. For Republicans, this will seem like familiar ground, since generations of conservatives have complained that the so-called mainstream media have been biased against them. Well, get ready, Republicans, for déjà vu all over again. The coverage through November likely will highlight the most extreme attacks on the President and his law and spotlight stories of real Americans whose lives have been improved by access to health care (pushed, no doubt, by Democrats from every competitive congressional district and state). The louder Republicans yell, the more they will be characterized and caricatured as sore losers infuriated by the first major delivery of candidate Obamas promise of change. The focus on the weekends alleged racial and gay-bashing verbal attacks by opponents of the Democrats plan should be a caution to Republican strategists trying to figure out how to manage the media this year.
Republicans need to start their assault now!
Imagine, when the Income Tax was created, if they said those who created it were not bound by it!
This is insane!
We need a revolution in this nation!
When they said “Change”, they didn’t mean for themselves. :)
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Since a bunch of lies passed the bill, why shouldn’t Obama’s media friends use a bunch of lies to try to sell the bill?
This is what I’ve been waiting for. I knew they exempted themselves. This needs to be a top talking point along with how obama had to BRIBE his own party to pass this obamanation.
Is this saying Congress is exempt from additional taxes to pay for Health care. If so then why is it good for us and not good enough for them.
...and they never will, as long as Dems are in power. That will never change.
Is this legal?
I wouldn’t expect any less. Hail to our leaders.
I’ll bet that the overwhelming majority of those that favor Obamacare for the rest of us are exempt from it themselves — which tells us all we want to know about it.
awww sit down and shut up like the good little peon you are! can’t have anybody getting uppity to the magic negro!
That needs to be the grounds of an Amendment XIV suit. We aren’t getting equal protection before the law.
That is just sickening. They’re not only dispensing with any pretense of objectivity, they’re rubbing our noses in it.
I was at a class last week wherein one of the guest speakers was a reporter from congressional quarterly. He bemoaned the fact that conventional media is dying and he might not have a job by age 50. I did my best to suppress hysterical laughter.
The more that comes out about this, the uglier it’s going to look.
Heck it takes time to read the 2,700 page bill.
It keeps getting better...Typical of liberals, telling everyone else what to do and not abiding.
LOL, that it does..
Man...........this just further feeds my unfortunate cynicism. What a bunch of arrogant losers.
re: that picture, and other gloating we’ve been seeing and hearing.
The mouth of the Lord has spoken: “Pride cometh before a fall.”
I like it when they get insufferaby smug, they’re easier to blindside.
Wear that badge of “NO!” proudly - in the case of the Republicans, it means fighting tyranny and protecting our God-given freedoms.
Translation: We in the MSM will spin the story any way we like.
Still can’t get the site to load. Coincidence?
The newspaper print media for the most part belongs to Guilds (especially the reporters and editors) and the Guilds are part of the Communication Workers of America (if part of The Newspaper Guild of America) as such they stand to be exempt from the surcharge on Cadillac Plans which would cost their firms millions and millions which they can’t raise by increasing ad revenues or cutting many expenses other than personnel costs. That means they have a vested interest in Health Care Reform (especially i9f their programs are underfunded like most of the plans)since it saves their jobs.
+++ Ill bet that the overwhelming majority of those that favor Obamacare for the rest of us are exempt from it themselves which tells us all we want to know about it. +++
Exempt: the “MILLSTONERS”.......I’d like to get th actual numbers here. Fit’s right in with a “Beltway Bailout” for the millstoners, while the rest of the country suffers job losses. (They’re “exempt”)
Remember the Animal Farm mantra?
Certainly it applies to the globalist elite who think they are superior to the American middle class.
That's a neat trick, since we'll be taxed now and the benefits don't kick in 'til 2013 or 2014.
Gee, if this healthcare bill is such a good thing, why would they deny themselves its benefits?
Whatever it is, it is the common practice in DC. Heck, for a long time Congress exempted itself from the laws governing personnel equal rights legislation.
Democrats have been opposing the Equal Protection Clause for 142 years now.
