Late last night, Politico broke a story reporting that the leadership of both parties have been secretly meeting for months to discuss a solution to the high cost of ObamaCare in Congressional offices.
They are just now realizing that ObamaCare is going to cost the Members of Congress and their aides thousands of dollars in new health care costs!
Their solution? Make Congressional staff exempt from ObamaCare!4 AnswersGovernment7 years ago

Assume that the legislation establishing government control of medical care is passed and that it 'brings down the cost of medical care.' You pay $500 a year less for your medical care, but the new costs put on employers is passed on to consumers, so that you pay $300 a year more for groceries and $200 a year more for gasoline, while the new mandates put on insurance companies raise your premiums by $300 a year, how much money have you saved?7 AnswersOther - Politics & Government1 decade ago
