Obama Exempts Ruling Class Washington from Obamacare — and Nobody Cares
They want to control people, not be controlled.
Check it out:
I hate to be an “I told you so,” but we did the story last week that Obama has saved the day. Members of Congress and their staffs, if you recall as part of Obamacare, were supposed to face the same laws, regulations, restrictions that all of us face in acquiring health care and health insurance. We were supposed to go to the exchanges; they were supposed to go to the exchanges. Remember the story, members of Congress, particularly their staffs, complained out the wazoo because they couldn’t afford it. These people make anywhere from 70,000 to $174,000 a year. They couldn’t afford it. They needed subsidies. They needed the taxpayers to subsidize their health care.
These are the people in large part who helped write Obamacare. Many of these staffers are Democrat staffers. They help lobby for the bill. And then they’re out there last week, actually the past two weeks, crying and moaning about how it’s too expensive, and they were demanding relief. And, remember, Obama went in and basically just waved his magic executive order pen and exempted them. And so they’re going to get, members of Congress and their staffs, 75% subsidies on the health care costs that they face under Obamacare. But not the standard Obamacare subsidy that is established as part of the law. This is a brand-new subsidy that is going to be paid by the Office of Personnel Management.
You remember the story. And it was outrageous. It’s along the lines of the House bank scandal, the House post office. And it clearly establishes the Washington versus the rest of us mentality. It establishes ruling class versus country class. And I remember going through the story, and Snerdley said, “This is gonna blow up. This is gonna cause a tidal wave. People are gonna storm Washington, the pitchforks.” I said, “No, they’re not. It isn’t gonna be a big deal to most people. Most people aren’t gonna care about it. Most people aren’t gonna know about it?”
