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....

Just watch. Either Congress will exempt themselves and their pets from Obamacare, or our fuehrer Obama will exempt them by Executive Diktat. The Politburo always gets better medical care than the peasants. Doesnt everyone know that by now?
Call to freedom bump!!
The article says it is a “proposed ruling,” by OPM to be issued next week. I thought Obamacare was a tax. Can you exempt this group, or any group from a tax by a ruling from OPM?
If it’s a tax, it’s an UNCONSTITUTIONAL tax. If we can’t get it repealed or tossed out by the SCOTUS, then the states must nullify it!!
If I was a liberal in 2013, I’d be laughing and pissing in everyone’s face too.
No one anywhere is even trying to stop them.
the ruling is to continue taxpayer subsidies for congressional health premiums. We’ll be paying the tax for them.
Wouldn’t equal protection somehow apply here?
Pressure from Congress..... how do they know this? Who in congress? This is taxation without representation!
I knew this was happening. They are the ruling elite. They make laws for the common herd and not for themselves. They live high off the hog off our hard-earned money.
With all of the waivers and exemptions in place already, the equal protection clause has been completely ignored.
You would thing a strong constitutional case could be made on behalf of the poor smucks forced to pay for all this, i.e. us.
You would think
In Ayn Rands fictional America Atlas shrugged. In this real America, if there are Atlases, they are not likely to shrug even if they know it’s possible.
The wolf and the bear have decided on what’s for lunch and it’s us.
The OPM has to turn over the list, otherwise for all we know it could be imposters calling them and demanding exemption.
It is our last stand.
We need Rs who are not “Trembling hands” as they say in Egypt on the Live thread. Trembling hands means the politicians AND military who do not do their job to protect the people from the Mozlem Brotherhood.
Our MB is in the WH and many other gov agencies.
She has no idea the Democrats are themselves fixed in an interlocking web of power groups which has generated its own morality having nothing to do with her nice, Protestant, Midwestern upbringing. They do not share her values, indeed, they despise her values.
That what they do in this instance is elitist and rankly unfair does not even enter into their mental calculus except to consider that it might affect them at the polls. They have transcended morality as evidenced by the fact that this selfish act is one of such breathtaking cynicism. The Democrat party and their interest groups are so invested in their obsessive identity politics that they draw their ethics and morality from their own ideology.
The question to them is not whether this is fair, but whether this is due to them as a member of this group? Just as the question was not whether the facts showed George Zimmerman guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, the decision for them turned on whether Travon Martin was black and Zimmerman was "white," their right to these taxpayer subsidies comes from their identity.
The question is not whether it is legal, not whether it is fair, certainly not whether it is constitutional, but whether this is the booty set aside for this group?
This kind of elitist cronyism is inevitable in a socialist environment. The Nomenklatura always get the Dachas.
Government is their god, and they are the chosen ones.
That’s the way the crooked bastard democrats operate. Nothing new here. AND, anyone that greases Obamagabe’s hands are exempt, from labor unions to Muslims, to McDonald’s.
Give the crooked son-bitch money and you don’t have to participate in WelfareCare. Other than the worthless Bill Clinton, this Kenyan fraud is the crookiest president in American history. He makes Nixon and LBJ look like altar boys.
I’ve never seen Greta pissed, but she sure sounds it.
We need a new constitutional ammendment that simply states that Congress may pass not law from which they themselves are exempt!
“heavy pressure from Capitol Hill”?
I think we are going to need more details. Like, from whom????
Exactly. The lunch ladies on Capitol Hill could flood the OPM phones, and that’s technically ‘pressure’ from Capitol Hill.
Since Obamacare is a “tax”, as ruled by John Roberts, won’t there be grounds for being ruled against by the SC now? How can a tax be paid for by Congress, to staffers as well as members?

Mayhaps the money will be taxable.
All of these fools in Congress should be taken out & have Putin do to them what he does to all of his enemies. End of problem!
culture of corruption bump for later..........
We are SO under “Judgement”. Truly, WE must seek the face of God, and repent of our rebellion toward Him, as a nation. We ought to be praying for Him to heal our land by our turning our back on “self”, and return to our original foundations.
Whether you are a ‘do-er’ or a “do-nothing” individual matters not at this point. PRAYER is the ONLY thing that can SAVE this nation.
