Washington (CNN) – Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare's architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law's new exchanges.
Reid is the exception among the other top congressional leaders. GOP House Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have all directed their staffs to join the exchange, their aides said.
Of course. Reid is as corrupt as they come, in Washington.
Reid = Hypocrite
He needs to go!
Frankly, as long as folks have ACCESS to the ACA and can obtain affordable healthcare they might otherwise not have the option to afford, I don't give a damn where ANYONE in the United States of America "gets" their "healthcare coverage", be it through Obamacare exchanges or not.
As far as congressional staffers? They. Are. Not. My. Concern.
OOH. More cannon fodder for the right wing. They're going to go nuts, foaming at the mouths, over this. Meanwhile, Democrats will be trying to get the nation's work down. There's a lot out there, particularly the Farm Bill. Republicans are holding the price of milk hostage, in order to cut billions upon billions from SNAP.
The hypocrisy of the right wing is so blatant that they either cannot see it, or just simply don't care, which is even worse. In the case of the Farm Bill, the right wants to cut food stamps to the poor, while sustaining subsidies to farmers that are worth millions in many individual cases. The party that defines itself as the defenders of liberty and freedom enact policies that run smack in the face of the poem that defines Liberty.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
It is said "A chain is not stronger than its weakest link"
If its so great why does someone need to be exempt?! Is is it because its not great but rather terrible and Reid is just another piece of garbage who happens to work in government? I think I'll go with that belief...
You suck, and your a Senator in title, nothing else. You and all if the Democratic leadership need to be prosecuted for the fraud the ACS has perpetuated on the American people.
Who voted for this man ????
If i said Harry was two faced would you believe me? Harry won't bring up many bills because he know they would be going against him and the Liberal's.
