I told you they would exempt themselves

And of course, congress did just that, with approval from the WH, of all things:

LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — The White House has approved a deal that will exempt members of Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Politico reported late Thursday. 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 enjoy, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the report said. However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, it said, citing unnamed congressional sources and a White House official.

Think the Obama cock suckers in the LSM will be writing about this or pointing out that our political masters don’t want to be part of the fucked up law they straddled the rest of us with? I don’t think so. Instead we will be getting more shit about Zimmerman speeding, Simon Cowell impregnating some married woman with the spawn of Satan, or Kim Kardasian losing weight after her anti-Christ baby finally popped out.

    Don’t forget the “Royal Baby”

    You know what really pisses off people that follow the royal family’s every more? Pointing out to them that the royal family is really just a British version of the Kardashians, right down to the low rent behavior, scandals, and insane family members.

    So… these government employees( congress people and their staffs) will continue to have their health care subsidized by their employer. Fascinating.
