Let Congress and Their Thousands of Employees Feel What it is Like on Obamacare!

Here is what our President should do today! Show these RATS that their decisions have consequences! He will grow his bast by a million plus more Americans right afterwards!

From the article linked above:

With a mere stroke of his pen, President Trump could end the exemption that President Obama gave members of Congress and their staffs that makes them the only participants in the ObamaCare exchanges to receive generous subsidies from their employer (the American people) to pay for their health insurance. Nothing would better focus Congress’ attention on changing ObamaCare than being trapped in it just like other Americans.

When Vice President Pence was asked about the special exemption for Congress by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” on Wednesday, he lamented that it was “pretty typical” for there to be “one set of rules for the American people and another for the political class here in our nation’s capital.” But he wouldn’t be pinned down over whether the Trump administration would act: “It would be (President Trump’s) decision to rescind that special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs,” he told Carlson

Although his amendment was watered down to exclude committee staff, it still applies to members of Congress and their personal staffs. Most employment lawyers interpreted that to mean that the taxpayer-funded federal health insurance subsidies dispensed to members of Congress and their personal staffs – which now range from $6,000 to $12,000 a year and cover about 70 percent of the cost of insurance premiums – would have to end.

“If the president does this, he’d have huge negotiating leverage. He would align the interests of the ruling class with those of his voters, forcing Congress to act. He might even get some Democratic votes.”

  1. Fle, you ALWAYS help me feel better. I hope I get to see this happen. JUST ONCE I wanna see BOTH HOUSES have to eat their own dogfood. I wish our Lion could make the change while they’re at recess and let them whine to their own VERY unsympathetic constituents.

    “Skewer not unto others, as they may return the skewering unto you”. I hope I can still buy stock in “Preparation H”.

    THANK YOU, FLEPORE!
