Alas, the slime in Congress is worried about Obummercare – not its anti-constitutionality and jaw-dropping stupidity, nor its immorality, naked fascism, inefficiency, and corrupt payoff to the insurance industry, let alone its destruction of what remains of American medicine and many patients’ lives.
No, they’re worried about their own premiums’ escalating.
Outrageously enough, our taxes buy these leeches and all their hangers-on gold-plated insurance. But that changes in January, per the “Grassley Amendment.” “The provision was put in the bill in the first place on the theory that if Congress was going to make the country live under the provisions of Obamacare, the members [of Congress. Sic for ‘sociopaths’] and staff [sic for ‘entourage’] should have to as well.” That means that while we will continue to pay for their insurance at current rates, they’ll have to cover any increase in the premiums. Fiat prices are a tragedy for serfs and, contrary to Obummercare’s promises, will toss many consumers out of the market. But imagine you are a Ruler, living off others’ sweat, who never pays your own way. Now your cronies at Blue Cross, et al, will take a far bigger chomp out of your ill-gotten gains. What to do about this unprecedented and dire emergency? Well, “dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.” Seriously? Don’t toy with us. You eavesdrop, rob, lie to, and murder us: don’t compound it by teasing that you’ll leave and then stay.
But congresscriminals’ anxiety hasn’t displaced their megalomania: “many on Capitol Hill fear [this mass exodus] could lead to a brain drain just as Congress tackles a slew of weighty issues…” Oh, my aching ribs! A “brain drain” from morons who, all put together, lack the intellect of wallpaper! It’s just too good! [Bill Martin sent me this story, perhaps to discover whether amusement can so disable a gal she requires hospitalization. Horrors: not under Obummercare. Just let me guffaw myself to death in the streets, please.]8:52 am on June 13, 2013 Email Becky Akers
