What Congress just did to you is appalling. I would not do this to you in a million years and I doubt you would do this either. It is indecent .just WRONG. Read the previous Politico story posted where it reports that Congress, as it races out the door for 5 week vacation, exempted itself (and staff) from Obamacare. So let me get this straight .they push OBAMACARE on EVERY OTHER AMERICAN except themselves. Really? Unbelievable, isnt it?
And it gets more disgusting .the article says there was a bit of a rush to get their exemption passed before their 5 week vacation because the Health Care Exchanges open October 1. They needed to make sure they were not disrupted. Really? They had to take care of themselves with the exchanges date of October 1 .but the CONTINUING RESOLUTION that funds the government (AND IMPACTS YOU) expires September 30 but they are ignoring that until after their 5 week vacation.
let me get this straight
.what matters to YOU and is their job to handle can wait until their 5 week vacation is over. What matters to them, gets done NOW, before their 5 week vacation. They come first even though they work for you and you even pay for their 5 week vacation....

yep. Been that way for a long time. It’s only that we are more aware of this crap going on, now.
I hear that all government agencies are applying for waivers.
It was known when they were passing it that they would be exempt and nobody listened.
I like your attitude (honest onyx) but ... our reps cair instead of care.
Maybe we should get a lavish party going for Obama, including a special lap-dance from Heyonce after inhaling some ‘fireweed’, and he’ll sign an EO stating that everyone in the US is exempt.
The nomenklatura had very special privileges and were exempt from most of the laws governing the more common Soviet citizen. Mostly made up of Communists, this class of people were immune from prosecution in many cases, and were granted vast privileges not available to the lower classes.
This is unacceptable in the utter extreme, and MUST BE THE DRIVING THEME INTO 2014 ELECTIONS. THIS ONE WILL IGNITE THE PUBLIC OUTRAGE LIKE NOTHING ELSE.
Disgusting. Absolutely disgusting.
Bring torches, tar and feathers.
Waiting on the vote list so I can REALLY throw up.
There was no vote. It was done by way of a “ruling” of the Office of Personnel Management. Sneaky bastards.
Not only that, but the SEIU and other unions want their workers exempted. So, basically, the government and all government and union workers would be exempt. These are the assholes who pushed Obama and this communist crap on us!!
As I said last night, our founders would have been shooting by now!!
Well, they can always become a Muslim.
At first I was outraged but just maybe the R’s passed this thing to enrage the public, get them off their lazy asses to start mass demonstrations to abolish bummercare. Just a thought but I doubt if R’s are capable of serious thought.
Uh... waitaminnit, since this is a revenue-raising tax - zerocare - can it just be exempted without being voted on? Is that legal?
There was no vote. They did by way of a “ruling” from the Office of Personnel Management. What a bunch of damn cowards.
Where is the vote? I want to see the vote on this.
The sneaky bastards didn’t even vote on this, Jim. They snuck it through with a “ruling” from the Office of Personnel Management.
