Congress: Obamacare and Airport Delays for Thee, but Not for Me

One really doesn’t know what to believe from our elected officials nowadays, but rest assured that any benefit they can endow on themselves will be baked into any cake.  That being said, a story hit the Internets this week that apparently high-level confidential talks have been going on for months about exempting members of Congress and their staffs from Obamacare. Why?  Simply — because it costs too damn much.

Further, while we wait in ridiculous and unnecessary lines at the airport due to “mandatory” sequester cuts and furloughs, the agency overseeing Obamacare apparently doesn’t have to sweat any cuts!  Plus, it also turns out that the Washington DC area is being spared the sequester sacrifices while everyone else must endure them!  Great.

After the obligatory eye-rolling, however, I can’t help but be troubled.  Rush had some thoughts about this kind of Ruling Class behavior earlier today:

“Folks, that kind of thing, gotta be very careful here in the choice of words.  This kind of thing, the crafting of punitive legislation like Obamacare mandating that every citizen abide by it, but the elites exempting themselves from it, has caused trouble throughout world history — throughout human history.  Acts like that have resulted in overthrows, have resulted in attempted overthrows.”

I can’t disagree — the Ruling Class is really pushing it these days.  Also, I can’t get this line out of my head while writing this post:  socialism is for the people, not the socialists.  DC is clearly making sure of that nowadays.
