Outrageous: Lawmakers negotiating Obamacare exemption for Congress

By
April 24, 2013

They passed it, found out what was in it … and don’t like it. So, they’re trying to change that for them. You on the otherhand, are screwed. Welcome to Ameritopia.

More on this story at link below.

Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.

The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said.

    As has been proven time & time again, the egotists called politicians, place themselves above the very people they represent.

    Equality under the Law it’s in the Constitution. If they pass this, an appeal should reverse it, but with the makeup of the Court I’m quite sure most of them care not for our Constitution

    • Freedom_Road says:

      You know this is what I was taught when I was growing up in school, if a law was not applied equally then the law was unconstitutional. We were not taught that there were any exceptions in the constitution for those that are supposed to representing us. Where did this start that anyone in our government can follow a separate set of rules from their constituents?! Any law not followed exactly the same by our government is an unlawful law and prosecution under it is unconstitutional!!!

    Classic Orwellian pigs. “All animals are created equal, but some are more equal than others!”

  7. Jack says:

    How can they possible determine the Quality of Obamacare if they are exempt from it.

  8. I says:

    Vote out of office EVERY CONGRESSMAN who’ll vote for this outrageous plan as they’re clearly morally unfit for ANY public office.

  9. Herb says:

    Laws are for subjects not rulers.

  10. thomass says:

    anyone that cared at all about the public would force them to use Obamacare and refuse to negotiate about opting themselves out.

    If they don’t like Obamacare; they can vote to repeal it for everyone.

  11. PJ says:

    Is this the beginning of the end of Obamacare?

    *crossing fingers, wishing upon a star*

    Bureaucrats I would approve of: Hire some folks to insure that these fools have to wait in the same lines that they rest of us do.

  13. Keith Jewell says:

    You hypocritical lying piece of shit …. in our offices … Obama care is so great…… it not good enough for you why ? Vote to shit can this crab (Obama care) and give the American people what you have we’re are paying for it anyway jackass arrogant far fetch from American people that all you want is for your own benefits …..repeal Obama care

  14. Malchish Kibalchish says:

    State security and governance require that officials are not distracted by peripheral problems like their healthcare. Such exemption is a proper and practical way to shield them just as it is with issuance of government cars, separate parking, gun permits, etc.

    ! Congress does not want to give up the cradle to grave coverage they already have. IT AIN’T PRIVATE INSURANCE. Obamacare is not as good as they already have.

  18. RebeccaH says:

    If they manage to do this, that’s reason enough to vote every last one of them out of office.

  21. Blacque Jacques Shellacque says:

    Every single one of these scumbags that are behind this effort should be strung up, no questions asked, and it shouldn’t matter whether they’re male or female.

  22. Libertyinfinite says:

    The American People will never again limit anything that government does.

    As you blame politicians, you make things worse. Unless the American People gain knowledge of where the money goes once it is taxed away, things can only get worse.

    You people on the right continue to destroy America. Because you continue to act as if it is not up to the American People to put any effort towards the recovery of independence.

    & you will continue to support hacks like Romney/Ryan.

    You only don’t support liberal republicans when they are not running. When they run, you all fall over yourselves to see who can be their biggest lapdog.

    The right is too far gone.

    The American right. because of people like you & Levin, are destroying American Liberty. You haven’t got a clue as to what liberty even is anymore.

    It is the ability for citizens to stop tyranny. Your only function today is to supply the crutch that keeps the American People lame. You are wasted. As is Mark Levin.

  23. Libertyinfinite says:

    I bet you ten thousand dollars that both you & Levin are too “important” to know what your city, county & state governments are doing right now. You two will kill this nation Dan. If people allow everything through, yet get angered after the fact & you feed into their anger, my god where’s the solution? Where is recovery? You & the whole of the right will never get to the solution or the recovery.

    You are wholly clueless. & Levin is nothing but a fat headed pervert.

      Don’t worry, the patriots will start hanging, shooting, and beheading the bastards from the bottom up – the local pols will be the first ones that end up dead son.

    • HempRopeAndStreetlight says:

      Now go sit the fuck down and shit the fuck up boy. You think 70 million firearms and 10 billion+ cartridges sold in the last 5 years so “the people” will bow down before the government slave-drivers?

      Huh idiot?

      Hell no boy – the people in this country are preparing for a civil war. Every militarily serviceable weapon made within the last 100 years is sold out. Still. The store shelves are bare of bullets, brass, powder, and cartridges.

      Only thing left now is a proper pre-text. This “let them eat cake” mentality just might be an excellent flash-point.

    Members of the House of Representatives and the Senate who voted in favor of Obamacare must be forced to participate in exchanges. People who voted against the bill, I have no problem exempting them.

  25. […] Outrageous: Lawmakers negotiating Obamacare exemption for Congress. […]

  26. Verrmillion says:

    But doesn’t repealing Obamacare little by little accord with the views of a certain famous Congresswoman: “We’ve got to piss it away in order to find out what’s in it.”

    Please forgive me if I’ve quoted this superior intelligence slightly wrong. :)

  27. Limagee says:

    Total crap. All the hoops we need to jump through as citizens and as employers and they think they can just exempt themselves from it. Egomaniacs. Last time I checked democracy included something about representing the people that elected them. I guess our current politicians didn’t take that class. Sick.

  28. Nate Whilk says:

    If they do this (assuming there really is any chance they won’t), it’ll be after the 2014 elections. And it’ll be done quietly because the legacy media won’t cover it.

  29. Michael Blum says:

    Politic….it comes from the latin. Poly…meaning many and tic…..blood sucking parasitic creatures.

  30. malclave says:

    Not only should they not be exempted, the federal government should stop providing health insurance for civilian employees and their families.

    Since Obamacare is by (Congressional) definition “affordable”, they can buy it from the exchanges, and think of the money saved by having the government pay the associated fines to itself.
