Federal Obamacare Exemption proves Congress and their Staff are more Equal than us Poor Schmucks

Week in Review

No one appears to like Obamacare.  But those with friends in high places can do something about it.  Unlike the rest of us (see Congress to get Obamacare fix: reports by Michael Kitchen posted 8/2/2013 on Market Watch).

The White House has approved a deal that will create a regulatory fix for members of Congress and their staff related to some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, according to media reports. 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 have, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the reports said.

These members of Congress and their staff have health care plans that put other Cadillac health care plans to shame.  And because they are so good they are very, very expensive.  With premiums costing tens of thousands a year for a family.  Because these are so expensive it would be unfair to have these people pay for them out of their pocket.  So the government used tax dollars to provide a subsidy for them.  About 75% of the cost of these policies.

Now, while the rest of us poor schmucks can’t keep the plans we like and/or are seeing our insurance premiums go up by great amounts guess who gets to keep the plans they have without having to pay an additional dime?  Not us poor schmucks.  Nope.  But those who are apparently more equal than us poor schmucks.  Those in the federal government.  America’s aristocracy.

If you’re keeping count so far pretty much everyone on the left that helped pass Obamacare into legislation has received or is asking for an exemption from this atrocious piece of legislation.  And guess where the best doctors are going to want to work?  Not in the hospitals that take care of us poor schmucks with assembly line efficiency.  No.  They’ll be working in the luxury health care suites that cater to America’s aristocracy.

If you’ve ever wondered what it was like in the Old World with a noble class and a peasant class here’s your chance to experience it.  As you will soon be living it.  The more equal they make everyone else beneath them the more like a peasant class we’ll become.  And this is the ultimate purpose of Obamacare.  To make us their bitch.
