Two Sets Of Rules – One for them….One for us – ‘Congress to get Obamacare fix: reports’
‘Under the deal, according to the New York Times, the government, “We The People,” will continue subsidizing the healthcare of ALL politicians and their staff in the order of $5,000 per individual per year, and $11,000 per family per year. They must purchase their healthcare plans on the health insurance exchanges’.@ : http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/08/03/you-will-not-believe-how-big-a-subsidy-politicians-get-for-healthcare/
So ‘We The People’ pay a salary of $174,000 to our Congress men and women and then we also get ot ‘pay’ to subsidize their health insurance.
In effect – what Obamacare does for many Americans except we don’t have a public pahying us a $174,000 salary….
In effect – they will be getting a subsidy – a larger subsidy then the poor and middle class would get under Obamacare what the Republicans keep trying to repeal FOR many Americans…..
LOS ANGELES (MarketWatch) — ‘The White House has approved a deal that will create a regulatory fix for members of Congress and their staff related to some of the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, according to media reports’.
‘Under the law, popularly referred to as Obamacare, lawmakers and their aides were required to source health insurance “created” by the law or offered through one of its exchanges; and without the subsidies they currently have, the members of Congress would have faced thousands of dollars in additional premium payments each year, the reports said’.
‘However, the Office of Personnel Management now plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution (i.e. – we taxpayers ‘get’ to pay) to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff, according to unnamed congressional sources and a White House official’.From : http://www.marketwatch.com/story/congress-to-get-obamacare-exemption-report-2013-08-02?dist=tcountdown
