    Look who wants out of ObambiCare

    The NTEU (National Treasury Employees Union) are demanding a waiver from ACA mandated exchanges.  This of course, includes the IRS, who is in charge of said enforcement.

    Well, what's it tell you when the agency in charge of enforcing a law, wants an exemption from that law?

    I also heard that the senate and house staff are also going to get exempted.

    BTW, do buy the line that it is just a negotiating posture from the unions. they know this hurts them.  they have finally woken up.

    There aren't "many sure things" in life, but one of them is that Obamacare would be repealed almost instantaneously if the bigwigs in Washington actually had to live under the law designed for peasants like you and me.

    sure.  keep telling yourself that.  Google "congressional careve out" if you want to get a sense of what is going on behind the scenes.

    No it's not.  The Republicans are just trying to wound it, so Dems get thrown out, then the Republicans will start to implement it their way.

    During the ACA negotiations, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) proposed an amendment forcing all members of Congress and all of their staffs to enter the exchanges. The purpose of the amendment was to embarrass the Democrats.

    Rather than be embarrassed, Democrats instead embraced the amendment and added it to the law

    Here are the exact words in the ACA:

    The only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are — (I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or (II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act).

    It won't work and will probably backfire on the gopers as more people gain coverage where none was previously available.

    Why on earth would they "implement" something they want to destroy...?

    Remember, this is the same group that flat-out refuses to govern simply out of spite toward the president.

    So..basically the people who want the NTEU to participate in the insurance exchanges are advocating a move away from employer sponsored health insurance?

    Am I the only one here that thinks that this is hilarious?

    Have you also noticed that the establishment GOP seems to have a lot more in common with the left than they do with their own base?

    Health insurance rates in Florida will rise by 5 to 20 percent in the small-group market, and 30 to 40 percent in the individual market, as the Affordable Care Act’s guaranteed coverage rule takes effect next year, Florida’s insurance commissioner said Monday.

    The wingnuts have used the canard that no workers would be able to get insurance through their employer due to ACA. Of course that is patently false.

    And to prove it, they are going to write a special law out of spite, FORCING the NTEU to drop their current insurance.

    ---------------------------------

    Just like the other thread Mr Crystal Ball.  Give me a call when they do.  Oh, and this mythical law singles out Treasury and no one else?  Really now.  When the phone don't ring, I'll know its you.
