Your Congress Is Getting HUGE SUBSIDIES For Their Health Insurance

There is plenty in the mammoth ObamaCare program to anger everyone. But perhaps one of the most troublesome issues is the matter of the controversial exemptions to ObamaCare that the Washington ruling class arranged for themselves…


 
While the Affordable Care Act (ACA) does indeed require that members of Congress and their staffs purchase healthcare insurance provided under ObamaCare, Democrat and Republican leaders connived with President Obama to have the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) come up with (an illegal) ruling that allows members of Congress and their staffs to keep the luxurious Federal Employee Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) “Rolls Royce” subsidy that pays for 75 percent of their premium costs. This amounts to $5,000 in subsidy for an individual plan and $11,000 for a family plan.

That’s YOUR money paying for THEIR insurance perks while millions upon millions of people have lost their current healthcare plan due to the enactment of ‘ObamaCare’. By the way — you as an ordinary citizen cannot simply vote yourself a fat subsidy like your congressional ‘representative’ can.

…just thought you would like to know yet another way that your congress(men) and women have been screwing you, while you continue to vote them into office.

Think about that during 2014 when you enter the voting booth…

Who voted for ObamaCare? Here is a list sorted by state.
