Is it any wonder that the American people are fed up with politics? Barack Obama's approval numbers are terrible, but American's feelings toward Congress are even worse. So, it shouldn't be hard to believe that members of Congress (with the help of Obama) are hard at work to make sure that sky-high Obamacare premiums will NOT apply to them.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, the annual salary of members of Congress and their higher paid aides put them in a category where they won't qualify for Obamacare subsidies. Thus, the premiums and potential out of pocket expenses for them are about to go up, up, and up. So what are they going to do about it? You guessed it...

The result was a full wig out on Capitol Hill, with Members of both parties fretting about "brain drain" as staff face higher health-care costs. Democrats in particular begged the White House for help, claiming the Reid language (in the Obamacare bill) was merely an unintentional mistake. President Obama told Democrats in a closed-door meeting last week that he would personally moonlight as HR manager and resolve the issue.

And now the White House is suspending the law to create a double standard. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) that runs federal benefits will release regulatory details this week, but leaks to the press suggest that Congress will receive extra payments based on the FEHBP defined-contribution formula, which covers about 75% of the cost of the average insurance plan. For 2013, that's about $4,900 for individuals and $10,000 for families.

As Politico.com writes, "Lawmakers and staff can breathe easy -- their health care tab is not going to soar next year." So, Obama and Congress feel that it's ok for health care prices to soar... as long as it's not happening to them. I see.

The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, will issue a ruling that says the government can continue to make a contribution to the health care premiums of members of Congress and their aides, according to several Hill sources.

A White House official confirmed the deal and said the proposed regulations will be issued next week.

This is so outrageous, even MSNBC thinks it's bad news. Now that's saying something!

This is just one more example of the inane concept of Equality that you get when you deal with a Socialist Democrat, where you always get the complete opposite as an individual of what they propose for the benefit of the collective, which ends up getting the opposite as well. Like the closet Communists they are, they believe all history, all human exchange is economically determined in the arena of class struggle, and it is their collective of classless losers who must constantly wage war to get the upper hand with slogans and promises of an equality which can never materialize so long as they refuse to share equally the responsibility to pull their own weight in society which just becomes a mill stone tied around the necks of the rest of us.

Is anyone surprised Obama is playing the Chicago Democrat Machine crooked pay-to-play politics on the national level now that some of us were stupid enough to re-elect him? The good news is that Jesus is coming soon to fix things because it is obvious that Obama is the anti-Christ. AMEN!

Buncy may be in the tank for Obama (that's drunk tank in his case), but I see Obama for what he is. A lying s.o.b. who plays Chicago politics on the national level. He punsihes those who disagree with him and "rewards" those who do things his way, no matter how illegal, immoral, or anti-American. I hate Obama. I can't wait for a new president. Anyone whould be better than this lazy liar Obama.

Excellent advice Miss Church Lady. No doubt these juvenile trolls are from up north and that is why they hate God and love satan. Juvenile trolls, grow up and get to a Bible believing church. Repent your sins sincerely. Ask God Almighty's on ly begotten Son Jesus Christ to forgive you and give you the strength to try to be a normal Southern man with manners and a reverence for God, country, and family. Amen!

What you liars and shill knowing fail to mention about the affordable care act is that if you like your current insurance KEEP it. That said... I hope you liars get cancer.

The other thing criminal lying Republican butt sniffing trash don't mentions is an alternative to the affordable care act.

Another thing you guzzlers of Drugster Rush Limbaugh's sperm fail to mention it that US health care is ranked 38th for quality and and it costs 3 times the world average.

Another thing you brain dead hypocrites don't mention is that the average overhead for private ins is on average 21% whereas the overhead for Medicare is less than 2%.

Another thing that you drooling, tea-bagging hicks don't mention is that 1/3 of health care costs in the US is doctor and hospital fraud.

It's ironic that a war-drumming nutbag like you would oppose health care reform because it would get you the Prozac you so desperately need.

I pray, in Jesus' Name, that we soon get a president who is a Christian, not a Satanist Muslim as Obama is. And I pray our new Christian president puts a stop to the over-taxation of working Americans so that the lazy can get "free" care, and the crooked Chicago democrat politicians can skim off the top and reward their henchmen fellow criminals. I pray in Jesus' Name, AMEN!
Hey dumbfuk, the False Messiah Jesus lied about prayer. Jesus is quoted many times in the Bible saying that a believer can ask for anything through prayer and receive it. He even goes so far as to say that mountains and trees can be thrown into the sea simply by praying for it. This is clearly a lie, and can be proven to be a lie by any believer. Simply pray for me to be converted to Christianity right away. Or better yet ask God to move the mountains behind my house. He could make a lot of converts that way. If I’m converted today, I’ll post a public apology on my web site and devote my life to kissing God’s ass. If I’m not converted it would only be fair for you to apologize and devote your life to kissing my butt.

Here are the quotes from Jesus that proves that he lied:

1) And Jesus answered and said to them, "Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain,`Be taken up and cast into the sea,' it will happen. "And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive." (Matthew 21:21-22 NAS)

2) Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.(Matthew 7:7-8 NAB)

3) Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they may ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in heaven. For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.(Matthew 18:19-20 NAS)

4) Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him. Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.(Mark 11:24-25 NAB)

5) And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.(Luke 11:9-13 NAB)

6) And whatever you ask in my name, I will do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything of me in my name, I will do it.(John 14:13-14 NAB)

7) If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.(John 15:7 NAB)

8) It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.(John 15:16 NAB)

9) On that day you will not question me about anything. Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you. Until now you have not asked anything in my name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete.(John 16:23-24 NAB)

A lot of Christians ignore what Jesus actually says in the Bible. They also tend to add things to the actual words to make them say something else. If you honestly and truthfully read these quotes, without adding to them, it is very easy to see that Jesus is not saying that God will think about your prayers. He says God will grant all your prayers. Clearly, God doesn’t grant all prayers and this proves that Jesus was a habitual liar and so are you.

Obama he gives senators and congresswomen and federal employees taxpayer subsidy for his Obamacare. Taxpayer to pay 75% of Obamacare premium if you a rep or a sen or while away your time at a federal job desk. But we the people don't get no subsidy. We get a $1500 fine collected by the IRS. Something wrong with this picture? THIS IS WHY THE REPUBLICANS SHUT DOWN THE GOVERNMENT. TAXPAYER FUNDING WILL NOT CONTINUE UNTIL THE DEMOCRATS TAKE OFF THE TABLE THEIR REQUEST FOR "HELP" WITH THEIR OBAMACARE BILLS. THIS FROM PEOPLE WHO MAKE BETWEEN $100,000 AND $200,000 A YEAR OR MORE.
