Democratic Congressman: 'Not Fair' To Subject Congress To
Obamacare Just Like Everyone
Else

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.



Politico 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 shouldn’t.

We’ve 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”?
