But only for you…
Looks like Harry Reid does not think Obamacare is as wonderful as he let on when he helped jam it down our throats. He has exempted part of his staff from the mandate so that they can stay on the federal plan. Members of Congress have discretion with regard to certain staff as to whether they must enroll in the plan while the members and some other staff are required under the law to enroll.
Reid has decided that the Obamacare that is so wonderful it had to be forced upon us is not a great deal for some of his staff.
Seems to me if Reid can exempt some of his staff we should have the ability to exempt ourselves WITHOUT PENALTY.
In other words, why is it that the idea of if you like your plan you can keep it only applies to special folks while the rest of us are forced to get rid of plans we like to meet some federal mandate?
Remember, Harry Reid shut down the federal government over Obamacare. He refused to delay it for a year and allowed the government to shut down over his stubbornness. Now he is exempting part of his staff from the very thing he refused to change to avoid a shutdown.
The strange thing is after Reid allowed the government to shut down Barack Obama allowed the very delays that Republicans wanted because Obamacare is not working. Obama needed to push things past the next election.
Harry Reid, on the other hand, seems not to care about how it looks and what effect it might have on the next election. He exempted staff and Republicans were quick to jump on it.
Reid’s spokesman Adam Jentleson said that they were just following the law. Funny how they are following the law when they want to do something but refuse to follow the law or criticize those who do follow the law.
Cases in point; Reid never said a word about Obama not following the law as written and Reid as well as other Democrats have blamed all the insurance cancellations on insurance companies when they are only following the law.
In any event, keep this in mind during the next election. They impose on you while exempting others.
As an aside, you know Democrats are in trouble when they start invoking God to help them out. Reid and his buddies could very well lose control of the Senate and one of the Democrats in trouble is Mark Pryor of Arkansas. In his new ad he holds an open Bible and invokes God’s name.
Next year might be a real good one if we can get take control of the Senate and even better if we get rid of some RINOs along the way.
Never surrender, never submit.
