Default IRS employees union: Please donít make us enroll in Obamacare

The union that represents IRS employees is urging its members to write to their congressmen to help get the union out of Obamacare.

ďI am a federal employee and one of your constituents. I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA),Ē according to a form letter drafted by leaders of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), which represents IRS employees.

NTEU members currently get health coverage through FEHBP, which represents federal employees, but Republican House Ways and Means chairman and Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Camp seeks to obliterate that program and push legislation that would put federal employees into Obamacare exchanges.

Wait, what!? So these people that are in charge of enforcing obiecare upon the rest of us don't think they and the new 15,000 agents hired to enforce this piece of sh*t law should have to participate in it? Congress doesn't want their people in the program and law makers have made themselves excluded from it.

Good f*cking deal for the rest of us though right?

We need to put something in the works that prevents those who pass laws from excluding themselves from said laws. The fact that they can is complete and utter bull****.

SIGH... It woulda been SO MUCH easier to have made it a national and a single payer system.

They just couldn't get the Democrats to vote in favor of it.

And that's the biggest problem right there. Term limits and make them live by the rules they set for us, no retirement for a senator or congressman, No income beyond your base pay while serving a term and that means no investments and no bullsh*t sweet deals.

We have single payer you dumb*ss. We pay the taxes and the government employees use that to their own benefit. The only people that don't get to play on this field are the tax payers. There will never be a government run healthcare system that allows YOU to have the same access to medical care the government gets. Theirs will always be better.

Politicians should get paid very little and should not have any retirement beyond a normal 401k and whatever they set up for themselves. There absolutely should be term limits for ALL public offices. They should never, EVER be exempt from ANY laws, and most certainly not ones THEY put into action.
