If you’ve watched any news over the past few days you’ve heard the barrage of nasty rhetoric coming from the Democrat. They have accused Republicans in the House and their allies in the Senate of being like terrorists, arsonists, extortionists and anarchists. Why? Because they passed a bill funding all aspects of government except for Obamacare. None of the Republicans are talking about a government shut down. They’re trying to avoid it. It’s the Democrats who are willing to shut down the government, all so they can force Americans into health plans they themselves want no part of. It’s the height of hypocrisy and Senator Rand Paul continues to call them out on it.
What should infuriate you the most is the fact that the same elected officials who implemented this mandate have recently declared themselves exempt from it. That is to say, these officials are forcing you to partake in something that they themselves are refusing. If Obamacare is so great, why then are federal employees and elected officials getting special treatment and opting out?
If President Obama, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Harry Reid and Chief Justice Roberts love Obamacare so much, they should live under it. Their actions speak louder than words, and it is erroneous for these leaders to even attempt to claim that Obamacare is a step forward for Americans. …
I have a proposal. I have offered an amendment that would outlaw any special exemptions for government employees. This amendment requires all federal workers to purchase health insurance from the new Obamacare exchanges, instead of receiving taxpayer-funded subsidies.
I am also introducing a more broad constitutional amendment, which states that Congress shall make no law that treats citizens differently from the elites in the federal government.
