Mr. T Posted March 25, 2010 Report Share Posted March 25, 2010 Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their staff are all exempt from ObamaCare reforms We are thrilled to say none the least. Obama Ration Care HERE Obama has said for weeks now that the Republicans have been lying and using scare tactics to turn the American people against ObamaCare and that once it’s passed and the American people see what’s in it then they’ll be just thrilled with it. Well, if it’s that good, then Obama will enthusiastically participate, right? Nope. Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi wrote the bills that Barack Obama signed today, so they know exactly what’s in them. And they made sure to exempt themselves, the leadership from both the House and Senate, their staffs, and the entire Administration from having to participate in it. That should tell you everything you need to know about how wonderful ObamaCare really is. Congressman John Carter, who is part of the House leadership, so he and his staff would be included in the waiver, had a few choice things to say about the leadership’s exemption from this history-making piece of legislation. He sent out this press release today: In what will likely be recorded as the greatest political hypocrisy in American history, President Barack Obama, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have exempted the entire Administration along with House and Senate leadership and committee staff members from participation in their new federal healthcare gulags, while forcing rank-and-file House and Senate staff out of the Federal Employees Health Benefit Plan (FEHBP) and into the restricted federal health insurance pools, along with the rest of working Americans. “This is such an incredible affront to every principle of equality in this country that it demands an immediate apology to the nation by the President,” says House Republican Conference Secretary John Carter. “That should be followed by a straight up-and-down vote in the House and Senate on a bill requiring every Member and staff in both Houses and the Administration be included in this new monstrosity, with no exceptions for leadership, committee staff, the President’s cabinet, or the President. If they think this crap is good enough for Joe the Plumber, then it should be good enough for Barack Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, and Tim Geithner.” HR 3590, signed into law by President Obama earlier today, removes House and Senate Members and their official staff from FEHBP, forcing them and the rest of the country into the new federal exchanges. However, the bill was amended by Reid in the Senate to exclude all leadership and committee staff, who along with the President, Vice-President, Cabinet Members, thousands of Obama Administration staff, and an unknown number of Czars, would be allowed to remain in the superior FEHBP program. Carter, himself a member of the House Republican leadership with staffers that would be included in the waiver, says the law should be applied equally to all, or none. “Either every Member of Congress and the Administration and their staff at every level should move to the federal exchanges, or no American anywhere should be forced to do so. Senator Reid’s actions speak much louder than his words on what this bill was really about,” says Carter. The health care reforms included in ObamaCare will destroy the health care system as we know it, which is exactly what Obama, Reid, and Pelosi want. The truth is they don’t give a rat’s behind about the we the people and our health and welfare. For decades they have dreamed of implementing universal, single payer, socialized medicine, which ObamaCare will inevitably lead to. But they know perfectly well that that kind of system leads to inferior services, fewer technological and medical advances, and the rationing of access to medical care. Naturally, they made sure they got to keep their far superior health insurance plans. As far as they are concerned, they deserve it because, well, they’re the political elites, don’t you know. They can’t suffer the inconvenience of waiting in lines if they get sick or need a medical procedure. They will be simply too busy crafting all the new legislation that will subjugate what’s left of our autonomy to government control to be bothered providing the 16,500 new IRS agents in charge of implementing this truly wonderful new system with all the necessary documentation to prove that they purchased their government sanctioned health insurance plan. No, no, no, they’re simply too important to the country for that. But, if you point out this blatant hypocrisy to them, they’ll counter with the line that health care is a complicated issue. In fact, it’s so complicated that it’s too difficult for us to to understand. You see, we’re just the masses, the proletariat, the unsophisticated rabble who pay the taxes that they spend like trust-fund teenagers. No, we’re just not smart enough to understand the nuances of why we, the hoi polloi, are better served if our betters have their own separate but equal insurance plans that are superior, faster, and do not ration care.
