At the end of this short blog, I’m going to ask you the following question, so please be thinking about it as you read:
Have you ever – in your entire life – witnessed a presidential administration that is more blatantly unfair, unethical and un-American? You probably already have your answer to that question, but please humor me by reading what I believe is the latest example of the Obama Administration’s “audacity.”
It was recently reported in a variety of news sources including the Wall Street Journal and New York Magazine that President Obama has approved a plan that would exempt Congress and their staff from some of the provisions of ObamaCare.
Under this healthcare legislation, which I believe will bankrupt businesses, people and states, in that order, lawmakers and their aides are required to gain health insurance for themselves either established by the law or offered through one of the exchanges and without the subsidies they currently receive. That means that they would have been forced to pay thousands in additional premiums each year.
But it’s now being reported that the Office of Personnel Management plans to rule that the government can continue to make a contribution to the health-care premiums of the lawmakers and their staff. The Administration is very much aware that ObamaCare is going to be the train wreck that many are predicting it will be, but to keep Congress from repealing it, lawmakers will be exempt from it.
Apparently it’s perfectly OK for businesses to go under because they can’t afford to offer employees the healthcare plans they’re required to offer. And it’s OK for U.S. citizens to go bankrupt because they’re laid off from jobs by those businesses. And it’s OK for states to go bankrupt because they can’t afford to make up the difference when Medicare funds get slashed. All of that is OK, as long as our lawmakers don’t have to suffer the ill effects of this hideous healthcare law.
So, here’s the question again: Have you ever – in your entire life – witnessed a presidential administration that is more blatantly unfair, unethical and un-American? If so, I’d love to know which one it was.
