Whats Good For The Goose..........

GOP wants Obama to enroll in Obamacare


As the Senate grinds through 20 hours of debate on the health care reconciliation bill, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, Tuesday night offered an amendment that would require the president, vice-president, members of Congress, political appointees and congressional staff to get their federal health benefits through the soon-to-be-created health insurance exchanges.

Re: Whats Good For The Goose..........

So only now the GOP wants to do this?

Give me a break. That's called pandering. Why didn't they try this a year ago? Two years ago? Three years ago? Maybe if the President and members of congress enrolled in the same health care system that we have been a part of, they might have actually paid more attention to reforms.

Too little too late for me. Screw the democrats for passing such worthless legislation, and screw the republicans for doing an absolutely piss poor job of stopping it.

Re: Whats Good For The Goose..........

This should have been part of the plan from the get go. A good "leader" would show the masses the way. I never ask any of my techs to do a job I haven't already done prior and they know this.

Both sides of the isle should have been more than willing to make this part of the plan to begin with but instead they both have a do as I say not as I do mentality.

If the repubes had done their job in the past we wouldn't have these issues today.

Grassley had been trying to get that on the bill for the past few months. I'll see if I can find the links that had been sent to me a few months ago

For someone that always is informed, you aren't on this one. Grassley has been pushing for this ever since the whole debate pretty much started last summer. I'm from Iowa and this was in the news here last summer, just FYI

Since last summer

They didn't try this for the last 3 years because we didn't have Obamacare for those years. We weren't forced into a specific health system like we are now. We could choose how we participated in our health care, including not to participate at all.

Now we're forced into a system that most don't want. But some people were able to exempt themselves. (You can guess who they are.) The Republicans simply want everyone to be forced into the same system. I agree.

But let me see if I have this correct...you're angry because the Republicans are trying to change something about the health care system that you agree should be changed, but your also angry because they didn't kill the bill. So which do you prefer, taking action or rolling over?

No one knows everything.

And I think Pocket is exactly what he appears.

Intelligent, articulate and willing to go to great depth to explain his position.

I can see why you're jealous.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Only last summer, and only because the health care legislation was really catching on in Washington.

Why not before that? That's what I'm asking. Why wasn't this proposed years ago? Why wasn't it proposed before politicians started with healthcare overhaul. Put Washington on the same system as us, then let them work on re-inventing it. I bet we would have had completely different legislation.

But thanks for not picking up on that, hoss.
