The Dems Just Screwed Themselves Out of Their Own Health Benefits

The surprise is that the Obama hacks at the New York Times actually published this.

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members.

For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

The law promises that people can keep coverage they like, largely unchanged. For members of Congress and their aides, the federal employees health program offers much to like. But, the report says, the men and women who wrote the law may find that the guarantee of stability does not apply to them.

LOL!  The sweet, delectable irony of the law of unintended consequences! Not only did the Dem jackasses vote for and pass a bill they didn’t read, but as it turns out, they’ll have to shop for a new healthcare plan.
This socialist clusterfuck was rammed through the legislature through corrupt arm-twisting, lies, pay-offs, bully tactics, and the acquiescence of craven lawmakers. The majority of the American people did not want ObamaCare, and even the far left dingbats are finding out why.
The Dems side-stepped their responsibility for this mess by exempting themselves from the ObamaCare trainwreck:

And now they’re likely up shit creek without a paddle.

Note: (From the article) Watch the Dem kleptocrats scramble to cover their asses:

Congress must now decide what steps, if any, it can take to deal with the problem. It could try for a legislative fix, or it could adopt internal policies to minimize any disruptions.

I said this before: The Democrats don’t even care what’s in this train wreck, they just want to pass it as another step toward government-controlled health care; a system to which they will never subject themselves. You can bet your ass members of Senate and Congress will never tolerate the lengthy wait and deteriorated state of medical care they want to inflict on their constituents.

Karma is a bitch.
