You people are dumber than shit.
Right now these people are on the Federal payroll & get the standard federal employee benefit package.
This package includes health insurance options which the government as employer pays part & the employee pays a share.
The only thing that changed under the ACA was these certain employees'(Congressmen & their staffers) options would be limited to what is available on the exchanges. Congress is discussing how best to pay for the federal government's share to the exchanges
How did you get so stupid?
Davy…The biggest advocate for Obamacare Unions/Federal Employees wants nothing to do with Obamacare!! Less than 3 percent of U.S. federal workers want to give up their current health plans and join Obamacare, according to a new poll…. Dave do you have Stupid tattoo on your Forehead?

The Federal Government currently pays for a sizable portion of its employee's health insurance. It is a benefit, not a subsidy.

That's the republican way &, history proves it. Same circumstances, same result for Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden. Reagan have Saddam his wmds during the Iraq-Iran war. Why do you think Saddam had influence over Iran? Iran knew they had to deal with aid from the US if tensions got too high. Why do you think Iran is now our primary threat? Because the asshole Bush took away the lion tamer! America wasn't even worried about Iran before Bush's mistake that still haunts America till this day. History 101! Not your story!

The U.S. Smells like COMMIETICS out of Control!!!!!!!!!

The Constitution of the United States divides the war powers of the federal government between the Executive and Legislative branches: the President is the Commander in Chief of the armed forces (Article II, section 2), while Congress has the power to make declarations of war, and to raise and support the armed forces (Article I, section 8). Over time, questions arose as to the extent of the President's authority to deploy U.S. armed forces into hostile situations abroad without a declaration of war or some other form of Congressional approval. Congress passed the War Powers Resolution in the aftermath of the Vietnam War to address these concerns and provide a set of procedures for both the President and Congress to follow in situations where the introduction of U.S. forces abroad could lead to their involvement in armed conflict.

Conceptually, the War Powers Resolution can be broken down into several distinct parts. The first part states the policy behind the law, namely to "insure that the collective judgment of both the Congress and the President will apply to the introduction of United States Armed Forces into hostilities," and that the President's powers as Commander in Chief are exercised only pursuant to a declaration of war, specific statutory authorization from Congress, or a national emergency created by an attack upon the United States (50 USC Sec. 1541).

The second part requires the President to consult with Congress before introducing U.S. armed forces into hostilities or situations where hostilities are imminent, and to continue such consultations as long as U.S. armed forces remain in such situations (50 USC Sec. 1542). The third part sets forth reporting requirements that the President must comply with any time he introduces U.S. armed forces into existing or imminent hostilities (50 USC Sec. 1543); section 1543(a)(1) is particularly significant because it can trigger a 60 day time limit on the use of U.S. forces under section 1544(b).

I’m anticipating another Obama speech how about you Guys? Liberals if we fire cruise missiles are drop stuff on Syria isn’t that an act of War?
Why are you addressing your question to "liberals"? It's your Republican candidate for president, John McCain, who is calling for the firing of cruise missiles and grandstanding about Obama's lack of immediate response to the obliteration of his "red line."

You people really don't know what you want. If Obama authorizes a missile strike you will accuse him of an "act of war". If he chooses to pursue continued diplomatic efforts, you will accuse him of undermining America's credibility in the world. Republicans are such a confused little bunch of cretins.

One thing for sure, Syria has violated the basic rule of international law by its use of chemical weapons and a U.S. military action in concert with a response by an international coalition of NATO allies (Germany, France and Britain) and Arab League nations would certainly be warranted. Ill advised perhaps but certainly justified.

A bit of Impeachment 101 History.

On February 24, 1868, the U.S House of Representatives voted to impeach President Andrew Johnson. A week later the House approved 11 articles of impeachment, accusing the president of Obstruction of Justice, thwarting duly enacted federal laws, improvidently removing military governors from the southern states, and attempting to bring into disgrace, ridicule, hatred, contempt, and reproach the Congress of the United States.

That's where we are.
The SCOTUS has become a divided but politically-motivated and politically correct appeaser of the tyranny.
Unless the American people come to terms with who and what they elected, it's never going to change. Republicans can't possibly be any worse and, in fact, they have to be the better of the two parties considering the borderline oppression imposed on us by the party in power.
It's the American people who don't seem to mind that concern me.
Good morning, shinning.
Tyranny you clueless twit? In North Carolina people are being arrested for exercising their Constitutionally guaranteed right to peaceably assemble and seek redress of grievances. Who's doing that Carol? The Republican State government. In North Carolina, Texas and other Republican controlled states are making it more difficult for certain citizens to vote, the elderly, the poor and college students. Why? because they're more likely to vote for Democrats. People died to insure every citizens right to vote. In Michigan the Republican emergency manager legislation allows the governor to effectively overturn local elections and ignore democratically elected officials. That's what I call tyranny and it's all on the GOP's side.
