Guess what’s good enough for you and I isn’t good enough for them…
Via Gary L. Bauer:
Congressional Democrats win today’s hypocrisy award hands down. According to Politico, Democrats have secretly approached the GOP leadership begging for an exemption to Obamacare.
As you may recall, Republicans were virtually shutout of the process of drafting the health care overhaul legislation. Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) offered an amendment mandating that members of Congress and their staffs get their health care through the same Obamacare exchanges that the American people must use.
For the sake of public relations, Democrats embraced the Grassley amendment. But now, as Obamacare is starting to be implemented, these same liberals want to figure out a way to escape from it!
In response to the story, Speaker Boehner’s office released the following statement:
“The fact that Democratic leaders want to opt themselves out of the Obamacare exchanges shows that Sen. Baucus isn’t the only one who realizes the president’s healthcare law is a ‘train wreck.’ The speaker would like to see resolution of this problem, along with the other nightmares created by Washington Democrats’ health law, which is why he supports full repeal. In the meantime, it is Democrats’ problem to solve. He will not sneak any language into bills to solve it for them.”
