A GOP amendment to O’care forced Congress and top aides into health exchanges.
Seemed only fair…the GOP point being that, if Congress passed a law that forced Americans into exchanges, then Congress should share the same pain.
In the Obamacare health exchanges, if you make over $36k you don’t get a subsidy.
Congress screamed, because it would cost them out of pocket.
Obama’s OPM team changed laws so Congress gets subsidized with tax dollars.
Private citizens making over $36k/yr – forced into exchanges – get NO subsidy…
…but Congressmen in exchanges – making $174k/yr – get subsidized with tax $$.
Democrats are trying to pass this off as no big deal, saying private sector employees get their healthcare paid for by their employers, so their subsidies are similar to that.
But it’s not the same thing…
…private sector employees with employer-paid health plans aren’t in the exchanges.
Democrats can try that argument all day long, and get a pass from the national media, but as usual they’re lying – the comparison is not accurate and obscures reality.
The reality is the GOP-forced amendment in Obamacare law pushed Congress into exchanges to feel what Americans who were forced into exchanges would feel…
…but Democrats demand and received subsidies that regular Americans can’t get.
Clearly, they just don’t feel they should be subject to the laws they pass.
