Hey, maybe ObamaCare won’t be so bad after all

Font Size:

Sure, it’s a terrible idea, but at least we won’t have to suffer alone. NYT:

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members.

For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

After the initial string of LOLs, my first question was the same as the NYT’s:

If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

I’d say that’s a big no! Good news, though: Nancy still gets to cut in line in front of you as long as she brings that big-ass gavel.
