When the Patient Protection and Affordable Care
Act (Obamacare) was being debated, proponents
were accused of saddling Americans with inferior
and expensive health care while keeping generous
coverage for themselves at taxpayer expense. To
rebut that allegation and build confidence in the
bill, a provision was added mandating that
members of Congress and their staff members
get there coverage through the new exchange
system the bill set up. Now that the time to sign
up for exchange coverage is nearing, a Democratic
member, Rep. John Larson (D., Conn.), is saying
that this is simply not fair as key staff
members head for the exits to avoid Obamacare.
reports that many on Capitol Hill fear it could
lead to a brain drain and notes that [t]he
problem is far more acute in the House, where
lawmakers and aides are generally younger and less wealthy.
What? Obamacare disproportionally hurts those
with lower incomes? It may come as a surprise,
but it shouldnt.
known this since before the legislation even passed.
More to the point, why did Rep. Larson vote to
impose on the country a health coverage system that is simply not fair?
