Chuck Grassley is My Hero
Chuck Grassley submitted an amendment today forcing Congress, the President, Vice-President, political appointees, and congressional staffers to get their federal health insurances through the to be created exchanges. As usual, they excluded themselves from this bill.
“President Obama has publicly advertised that his reforms would give members of the public the same coverage available to Members of Congress,” reads a GOP summary of the Grassley measure. “This amendment would ensure that he, his successors, and all his appointed political officials would also have the same coverage members of the public enrolled in the Exchange receive.”
Beautiful. I really hope the Democrats vote against this amendment, as it would make for some entertainment during the fall campaigns.
