We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
So much for President Obama’s virtual colonoscopy,not approved as cost-effective for ordinary folks’ coverage.But, then Obama would have had to been out during a routine colonoscopy and VP Biden would have been President for an hour or two.Imagine how much worse that would have been! Senator Grassley tries to set matters right.
Grassley said, “It’s only fair and logical that top administration officials, who fought so hard for passage of this overhaul of America’s health care system, experience it themselves. If it’s as good as promised, they’ll know it first-hand. If there are problems, they’ll be able to really understand them, as they should.”
Grassley said the motivation for his amendments is simple: public officials who make the laws or lead efforts to have laws changed should live under those laws.
“This is the same principle that motivated me to pursue legislation over 20 years ago to apply civil rights, labor and employment laws to Congress,” Grassley said. Before President Clinton signed into law Grassley’s long-sought Congressional Accountability Act of 1995, Congress had routinely exempted itself.
The senior Congressional Committee and leadership staff who wrote the ObamaCare bills are also exempt from it.
Are the American people really going to tolerate this "some are more equal than others" crap? At some point, if grievances are not addressed, resistance sets in, followed by rebellion. Is that what it will take?
