Yes, they did sneak in a clause that exempts them from the system, it's mandates, penalites and all that, that they are forcing upon the rest of the feifdom.

If you have a source, you'd be a hell of a lot more convincing if you'd provide it rather than playing coy and saying "Yes, yes I do".

So do you?

petegz28
03-24-2010, 10:52 PM
Ok, to clarify things since I have heard the same rumblings as a lot of you have. The people who have been exempted are basically the people who wrote the fucking bill.

Congress is not exempt yet the staffers of party leaders and congressional committees are exempt.

“The new health care law creates two double standards. The congressional staff who wrote the new law exempted themselves from the new health care system, while other staff will be in it,” Grassley said today in a statement. “And, President Obama himself will not live under Obama health care. The message to grassroots America is that it’s good enough for you, but not for us.”

That's TOM COBURN'S language in the Bill.

Reid spokesman Jim Manley acknowledged that the bill exempts committee staff but argued that leadership staff is not excluded. As for why committee staff is excluded, Manley said that when leaders merged the health care bills from the Finance Committee and the Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, they took Coburn’s language from the HELP Committee rather than Grassley’s Finance Committee proposal because they feared Grassley’s language was so broad that it would have required “people like legislative counsel, Architect of the Capitol, etc.” to participate in the exchanges, too.

Actually they did try to sneak it in the bill. It was on O'Reilly and Greta tonite. Repubs are trying to amend the bill to make EVERY govt official be subject to the legislation. This would include future reps/senators/ higher exec officials as well.

Does that not raise a red flag in your heads (liberals/Dems) that your great democratic leaders didn't want to subject themselves to any part of this bill. "It's ok for the American people to be subjected to a bill they don't want, but we don't". You gotta be shittin' me.
