I pledged not to use the word Obamacare, specifically because it was not Obama that originally proposed this type of plan for greater health care access. However, given that Marco deRubio is willing to accept $10,000 as a beneficiary of the subsidy that was offered through the plan, all the while working towards its defunding....I think the moniker is appropriate...

( )- Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), an Obamacare critic, has signed up for health insurance on the District of Columbia exchange, and he's accepted a $10,000 taxpayer subsidy to defray the cost of his family's health insurance. "It's an employer contribution," Rubio was quoted as saying on Monday. "It's available to every employee of the federal government." But as has reported, some members of Congress are refusing the subsidy, saying it's not right for them to get a perk that is unavailable to many Americans in the private sector. Under a deal arranged by the federal Office of Personnel Management in August, members of Congress -- who earn at least $174,000 -- will be able to keep the approximate $10,000 subsidy that they received under their previous federal health care plan. But the same deal is not available to Americans in the private sector.

Vive le Presidente socialist Hillary Rodham Clinton!
There are some idiots in America who think Republicans and Democrats are two separate parties and that America is a two party government when even the stupid, not my belief but the belief of arrogant Americans, Europeans and Russians know America is governed by a one party system, Democrat/Republican party bka as the ASP, American Socialist Party.
I am so glad you stupid Americans are so much smarter than the smart Europeans and Russians.
Two part system in America. HAHAHAHAH!!! yeah, right.

I'm fed up with members of Congress saying they are employees of the Government.

Who hired them? I thought we elect them to represent us in our districts and States.

We should determine what their salaries are and what benefits they receive.

If the statement is correct, "It's available to every employee of the federal government.", then that's why we get the Government we have. They work for them NOT us, the people.
