Congress´s Exemption from Obamacare
National Review Online, by John Fund

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 9/16/2013 5:55:52 AM

Those were just some of the incendiary words thrown around the U.S. Senate last week, and that doesn’t count what people said in private. The Senate may still have a reputation as a genteel club, but lawmakers seemed to abandon rules of decorum completely last week in arguments about whether Congress should be treated like the rest of the country when it comes to Obamacare. Senator David Vitter, a Louisiana Republican, has demanded a floor vote on his bill to end an exemption that members of Congress and their staffs are slated to get that will make them the only participants in

Among the things that really frost me about this horror of a law is that all the deciders -- including all members of the federal judiciary (let´s not forget) -- are exempt from its provisions.

It´s George Orwell´s great line from Animal Farm in full display -- "All the animals are equal, but some are more equal than others." And the most equal "animals" in America are the ones who already feed to satisfaction at the public trough.

Sometimes I fear that the only way to get some real reform in this country is to have another Constitutional convention. Two key amendments would need to be passed: Term limits and a prohibition of any passage of any law from which Congress or any other branch of government is exempt.

... and one more thing: check out this piece run by WSJ by George McGovern, the uber-liberal who went bankrupt trying to run a business on the laws he passed while in the Senate: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203406404578070543545022704.html

A person can live and survive the death of a business; we can´t live and survive the death of our ability to get the healthcare of our choice when we get sick and face serious illness.

The trade off, they tell us, is that millions of Americans will get FREE health care. Now it seems, citizenship is not even required.
A lot of us had to go to some pretty dark places, do some regrettable things, endure hostilities and many lost limbs and other body parts, but were rewarded FREE health care as a benefit for our service. Obamacare will effectively withdraw Veterans’ health care benefits, removing military service as a requirement. When Veterans finally realize this, I hope they are just as passionate as the congress weenies and their friends who were in jeopardy of losing their benefits.

THIS is the single issue which should make Americans madder than hell and motivate us all to march on Washington. It´s an issue that doesn´t rely on dividing Americans by political persuasion, race, or religion and so could potentially unite tens of millions of fed-up proletariates across the USA, from all walks of life.
But who will step up and rally them?
Sigh.

Federalist #57. "I will add, as a fifth circumstance in the situation of the House of Representatives, restraining them from oppressive measures, that they can make no law which will not have it´s full operations on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society." (Madison or Hamilton). Also read the debates on ratification that were held in the States.

The fact that Congress has the audacity to do this shows their contempt for the public and just how far we have sunk as a Nation. Not only are our exalted leaders morally bankrupt, they are corrupt to the core.

They have no fear of the voters. After all, it is they who select the voters through gerrymandering and redistricting, not the other way around as it was intended from the beginning.

Things that would get you or me thrown in jail, are legal and routine in DC. DC has sunk so low it is beyond fixing. I don´t know what to do. The American people no longer have will to pay the price, however small or however large, required to live in a free and moral country.

When asked that well known question, "What kind of Country have you given us?" Thomas Jefferson replied, "A Republic, if you can keep it." Well, we couldn´t keep it.

FTA: “… Several Democratic senators have asked staff to draft legislation that would deny federal health subsidies to anyone who votes for the Vitter plan, even if Vitter’s plan doesn’t become law. Vitter isn’t taking the attempts to strong-arm him quietly. … He also wrote a letter to the Senate Ethics Committee demanding an investigation of Reid and Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer of California. ‘Threatening to take away their colleagues’ health care coverage subsidy if they do not vote a certain way, at worst constitutes bribery and a quid pro quo arrangement, and at best amounts to improper conduct,’”

#1 ~ the overwhelming majority of people covered by ObamaKKKare get their insurance from their employer ~ just like before.

There are a host of new taxes that are supposed to be paid on all sorts of things, some related to health care, most not!

The members of Congress had for years and years gotten their medical insurance from the Federal Employee´s Health Benefit program (FEHB) like all other federal ´workers´.

There´s the 27th amendment that prohibits changing their compensation until an election had occurred, so that happened in 2010 ~ which meant that some time in 2011 they should have been pulled out of FEHB!

They weren´t. In fact, they seemed to believe that whatever ObamaKKKare did it left employer provided medical insurance alone. That´s where the exception came in and someone discovered the members of Congress and their employees (right down to the Capitol Police) were no longer part of the FEHB coverage umbrella.

Obama´s closest advisors probably imagined the FEHB program would still apply ~ so they came up with an emergency fix.

The 27th Amendment, however, says any such fix (to change compensation, and health insurance is certainly part of their compensation) can´t take place until an election intervenes ~and that´s 2014!

I´d say they are way up a crick without a paddle at the moment although they can change their staff compensation at will ~ so those folks are simply out of FEHB and off into a different gub´mnt exchange!

BTW, that exchange WILL NOT HAVE any of the insurance plans available that were previously available through FEHB and the prices will be higher.

But being exempt from ObamaKKKare? Which part are they exempt from

#7: please add to your list that the chief occupation of Congrescritters these days is raising money for re-election. They have no time to write (or even read) legislation. Legislation is drafted by lobbyists, who then pay for their bills to be passed.
Members do not serve at the will of the People. They constitute a privileged class, like the English Earls and Barons. They are persons of enormous personal wealth, much of which was acquired while in "public office." See Sen Harry Reid. And they hold office for life (in some cases even longer).
The Democrats hold power in all the heavy voting districts; rampant vote fraud is perpetrated there; dead people, nonexistent people, and who knows what all cast prefab ballots to keep dems in power.
This is the only way that 100% of the voters in some districts would vote for Ø. That is not 100% of the registered voters, mind; it is 100% of the residents!

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months. Last month, Elijah Cummings threw a fit when Issa shut down a hearing after retired IRS Director Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment. Issa fired off a personal letter at Cummings, claiming that he and his attorneys were frustrating the fact-finding mission of the Oversight Committee. Following revelations that Cummings’ staff was working with the IRS to get information on True the Vote, the same group Cummings tried to shame into silence through the race card, further evidence indeed suggests that Cummings was shaking down and

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

Ann Coulter was recently interviewed by author, journalist and talk radio host Howie Carr on his program; her commentary was pure establishment balderdash. Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police?

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
