“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Congress tries to exempt itself from Obamacare

According to Katie Pavlich over at Townhall.com, congressional lawmakers led by Boehner and Reid are very quietly trying to figure out a way to pass for themselves and thousands of aides, an Obamacare exemption....

From TownHall.com -- Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said. 

The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. 

Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said. A source close to the talks says: “Everyone has to hold hands on this and jump, or nothing is going to get done.”

They passed it despite massive voter opposition and now they're trying to wiggle out of it. This on top of them quietly passing a law just last week that relaxes the rules preventing lawmakers from profiting from insider trading information. Plus, they enjoy lavish retirement benefit and healthcare packages of their own design, not the bankrupt social security program under which the rest of us toil.

I swear, the treachery of these people is unfathomable. They are all liars, cheats, and villains. I have no use for any of them. I am disgusted!
