If we, the people, are forced to using ObamaCare, should not our politicians also use ObamaCare for their healthcare? For the past few months, members of Congress and their staffs have been discussing behind closed doors the worrying proposition that they will be forced off their popular health insurance program and onto the federal insurance exchanges set up under Obamacare. Is Congress Too Good for Obamacare and it is OK to screw the American people?
But not so fast, say two Heritage Foundation health scholars and a former general counsel of the OPM. The three health benefit experts scoured Obamacare’s rules, along with other relevant statutes, and found nothing in the law that gives OPM the authority to pay the government’ contributions to any health plan that is outside of the FEHBP.
Why should the people’s representatives get special treatment? Maybe they should have read the health law more carefully before they voted for it. Regardless, it would be a disservice to millions of hard-working Americans and their families for the Administration or Congress to jam through special favors rather than repeal an unpopular, unworkable, and unaffordable law.
BOTTOM LINE: Lawmakers and their staffs could keep their coverage by repealing a section of Obamacare, but at what political price?

While, we are talking about Congress screwing the American people, shouldn’t they ALSO follow the laws that they pass?
In addition, since the American people were forced to accept ObamaCare, isn’t is right that the first family and Obama ALSO accept ObamaCare rather than their own health care program? If you think that Obama and his family should be treated like the rest of us Americans, the please CLICH HERE!
If Obama loves ObamaCare so much, then he and his family should be forced to accept the same insurance coverage middle class Americans will receive! The bureaucrats too many times set up a system for US but not for THEM. Let’s FORCE these elitists to submit to the same laws they want for us!
