Congress Loves “Free Stuff” — For Themselves

As you know, the House voted last week — for the 33rd time — to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (HR 6079).  The vote was 244 to 185.

But I just found out today that there was a failed amendment to this bill.  This amendment would have terminated taxpayer-funded health coverage for all representatives who voted to repeal Obamacare.  They would have been discharged from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan.

The amendment was defeated 248 to 180.

In other words, 248 of our “representatives” have no problem whatsoever with a “Government Takeover!” of their OWN health care.  They love that “free stuff” — they just don’t want their constituents to get any.

Keep in mind, these people have a reputation to maintain. Those 13-percent-approval poll numbers will start drifting upward if they're not careful. Can you imagine how tea party droolers, knuckle draggers and similar crackpot voters would react if they were to discover the Congress they put their mark on two years ago was getting 25 percent approval ratings?

LOL. They are unwilling to buy health insurance on the same private market place where they want the rest of us to get our health insurance. I guess they are using the same reasoning that they use for not participating in Social Security.

Like most Randiots, they think themselves to be entitled to whatever they can beg, borrow, or steal. No surprises here.

SW: LOL, a 25% approval rating would be unthinkable to the teatards and other members of the GOP "base."

jadedj: Yup, break out the tar and feathers.

Randal: Next time don't be so long-winded.

Jerry: They want only the best for themselves (at taxpayers' expense), and crumbs for everyone else.

Jess: Some of my best friends are treehuggingbabykillinglittenkicking libruls.

JR: Nope, not a bit surprising.

@Tom the end one was supposed to read kitten killing and I totally blew it with litten killing spelling misteaks ;) Whatever littens are, I am certain I would be to blame if they died, seeing as I am a liberal. Either me or Obama, since he is to blame for everything else.

Let me re-phrase-Democrats motto-We will not subject ourselves to the same health care we voted for the peasants to have.
