Funny how lady week Carol was blaming Democrats & having a fit about this "loophole".<quoted text>
Heavens to Murgatroyd...
Republicans are the ones who insisted the law include Congress live under the same law and the same consequences they forced on the American people. The Democrats agreed.
But the Office of Personnel Management with Obama's blessing realized this provision contained no language that allowed federal contributions toward their health plans that cover about 75% of the premium costs.
The fear was higher healthcare costs would cause an exodus from federal service and a "brain drain" on Capitol Hill.
Can't have a "brain drain" on Capital Hill now can we? Pelosi and Reid have the biggest brain drains for getting the darned thing passed on a strictly partisan vote using bribes and throwing in the kitchen sink just to get some democrats on board in the first place.
When I told her it was a Republican that did it, the "loophole" is now a good thing.
