WHEN IT'S YOUR OWN MONEY Ken Berwitz


How do politicians feel about ObamaCare....when it is not your meney on the line, but theirs?

Exactly the way you would expect them to feel, as evidenced by the following excerpts from Anna Palmer and Jake Shernan's article for politico,com:

Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.


The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.


Translation:  they don't want it, because it raises premiums through the roof.  But you're supposed to pretend that isn't going to happen and jump for joy at the thought of ObamaCare,   Put another way, you are supposed to be an idiot.

Please don't be.
