WASHINGTON - Lawmakers and staffers in D.C. are doing all they can to escape Obamacare, Washington Times columnist Charles Hurt writes:
“If the issue isn’t resolved, and massive numbers of lawmakers and aides bolt,” Politico reports, “many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain just as Congress tackles a slew of weighty issues — like fights over the tax code and immigration reform.”
Oh my! What would we do without this “brain trust” handling all our weighty issues? I don’t know. But I do know what happens when we do have them. We get Obamacare. And it is so terrible they would rather quit their jobs than join it.
Rep. John Larson, a Connecticut Democrat who helped craft Obamacare for suckers all across America, complained to Politico that “this is simply not fair to these employees.”
What? The health care system YOU created for Americans is so terrible and so expensive that it is “simply not fair” that you should all be on it? Voters in Larson’s district should immediately begin a petition to have the man removed from office. What criminal hypocrisy.
And what devastating, willful ignorance. But here in Illinois, liberal special interest groups and lawmakers moved Illinois onto the Obamacare fast track with the passage of SB 26, which passed with only Democrat, not Republican, votes in either Illinois chamber. Democrats own it.
