Well, well, well…isn’t it interesting that those who tout the magical qualities of our new socialist medical care get to excuse themselves from it?
This CBS news article explains what the wiley wabbits is up to.
Some choice passages from the article:
One such surprise is found on page 158 of the legislation, which appears to create a carve out for senior staff members in the leadership offices and on congressional committees, essentially exempting those senior Democrat staffers who wrote the bill from being forced to purchase health care plans in the same way as other Americans.
Really? And it was supposed to be such good healthcare- affordable, comprehensive, available, no pre-existing conditions terms – what’s not to love here?
It appears from the way this language is written that those staffers NOT in personal offices, such as those working and paid under the committee structure (such as those working for Chairman Henry Waxman) or those working on leadership staff (such as those working for Speaker Nancy Pelosi) would be exempt from these requirements
Hmmm….so the most powerful woman in American and her gangsta cronies are thinking their plans might work better for them? No doubt she is right, since her plan probably includes actually being able to see a doctor before you die.
This problem was acknowledged earlier in the process – last year, Senator Grassley tried to repair it, but he was rebuffed.
As Speaker Pelosi said a few weeks ago, it’s only after this legislation is passed that we’ll truly find out what’s in it.
Yes, one of those nasty naysayers tried to point it out but was of course demonized and rebuffed. Have to pass it before we know what’s in it? Seems that was just what SanFranNan was counting on, eh?
