From the article:

"Boehner saw an eye-popping jump in cost as he moved from a plan set up for millions of federal workers to the D.C. exchange, which is designed for small businesses and individuals."

"The current cost for Boehner and his wife? They "pay a monthly premium of $433," said Boehner spokesman Brendan Buck."

"The new plan for the two of them?"

It "would cost $802 per month in premiums," Buck said.

Boehner’s stunt backfires when it came out that he wasn’t on hold for an operator to speak with him… rather they had her on hold for 20 minutes…

Embarrassing!

Just wait; next year when hundreds of thousands of Americans are signed up and receiving affordable health care we’ll see what the tea-baggers will find to cry about then, LOL!

Affordable his premium was more for one person than he used to pay for 2 people and his deductible went from 700 to 2000.

Since we are all in this together the government can now charge more for fat people I hope. I am tired of carrying them.

Yes and he will also be paying for coverage in case he gets pregnant or wants an abortion.

This is SCHOCKING to me.

http://www.govexec.com/pay-benefits/pay-benef...

The two health insurance programs, despite their similarities, are COMPLETLY SEPARATE. Federal employees who have opted out of coverage because it’s too expensive will have to choose between enrolling in the exchange network or FEHBP."

"FEHBP likely offers better bang for the buck. The program, which will have 256 health plans in 2014,
could add more participants to its beneficiary pool because of Obamacare."
==========

So ALL Federal Employees have a SEPERATE PLAN under FEHBP which offers "better bang for your buck" than Obamacare. Its CRIMINAL!!!

That is fine with me as long as you are willing to extend Boehner's previous Federally subsidized insurance plan to the rest of the Country.

In an UTOPIA that might be possible. But, because of the corruption of human nature, the cost would be borne by the industrious, hard-working Americans and deadbeats and the slothful would GLOM ON to those good citizens for a free-ride.

The system would foster resentment, and collapse.

My SUGGESTION would be for ALL Federal Workers, including Congress and the President, to pay for their OWN Insurance in the free
market place.

The only thing that gets teaboogers' panties bunched up more than thinking about federal benefits is when their checks don't arrive on time.

Do you really think that the measure of Obamacare will be whether one can navigate the website?

What about all those millions and millions of people whose coverage will be lost?

>>The Obama administration has repeatedly said that the health-insurance-plan cancellations receiving so much attention in the news in recent days will affect only the 5 percent of Americans who purchase insurance on the individual market. The Department of Justice, however, in a brief filed in federal court last month, conceded that the number may be much higher. According to the administration’s numbers, nearly 80 million additional Americans,“a majority” of those on employer-sponsored health plans, may also be out of luck....

The DOJ cites the June 17, 2010, edition of the Federal Register, which acknowledges that within the first year of Obamacare’s employer mandate, the insurance plans offered by many employers will be canceled because their policies will not be grandfathered under the administration’s regulations.”The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small-employer plans and 45 percent of large-employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” the Register says.“The low-end estimates are for 49 percent and 34 percent of small and large-employer plans, respectively, to have relinquished grandfather status, and the high-end estimates are 80 percent and 64 percent, respectively.”

Unfortunately the current SCOTUS views corporations as people, with all the same rights. It's only a matter of time before a company registers to vote and applies for a marriage license so they can exercise those rights as well.

So if Lowe's marries Home Depot, are they allowed to adopt Menards an use them as a child tax credit?
