Obama Approves Plan to Exempt Congress and Staffers From the Horrors of Obamacare
Of course, the elites won’t have to abide by their own laws and regulations.
It’s only us peons and slobs who will have to suffer through their carnage.
Obama approved a plan this week to exempt Congress and their staff from the horrors of Obamacare.
Market Watch reported:
The White House has approved a deal that will exempt members of Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported late Thursday. Under the law, popularly referred to as Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides were required to source health insurance “created” by the law or offered through one of its exchanges, and without the subsidies they currently enjoy, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the report said. However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, it said, citing unnamed congressional sources and a White House official.
It looks like they will be the one group in the country that really gets to keep their current plan.
