The Affordable Care Act is So Unaffordable, Members of Congress and Their Aides are Quitting Because They Can’t Afford It!
This might be what finally bankrupts the country.
Check it out:
Ladies and gentlemen, this is truly outrageous. There’s a headline in The Politico today: “Obamacare? We Were Just Leaving…” And when I saw the headline, I thought it was gonna be an article about how Democrats are afraid of losing their seats because of all the skyrocketing costs of health premiums and all the other negatives associated with Obamacare.
But that’s not what this story is about. What this story’s about is congressmen worried about themselves. In a nutshell, a number of congressmen and staffers, according to The Politico, are threatening to quit or retire because they can’t afford their premiums under Obamacare! So the same people who gave us this monstrosity, the same people who didn’t have the guts to vote against this monstrosity, are now bellyaching that they can’t afford it. And so they’re either asking for waivers or they’re running for the exits to avoid having to accept it for themselves and face any consequences. And a lot of these congresspeople are Democrats. Some of them are even demanding waivers and, failing that, they want to have their premiums subsidized by taxpayers. I am not kidding.
