I could have file this one under Your ♡bamaCare!!! Fail of the Day, but I already have something in mind for that later. So prepare to do your best Snoopy Dance to this little number:
A vast majority of top congressional aides say in a new survey that they are concerned about the effects of Obamacare on their staff, ticking off worries about changes to their benefits, higher costs and whether they’ll have access to local health care providers.
Ninety percent of staffers surveyed for a report released Monday by the Congressional Management Foundation said they are concerned about benefit changes under the health care law, while 86 percent are anxious about the financial hit and 79 percent cited worries to access.
Only about 35 percent of staffers said they have a “good understanding” of the changes to their health care plan under Obamacare, according to the survey.
Another thing they could do is leave DC and find honest work where they don’t suckle at the government teat for the privilege of running our lives — and now with the bonus privilege of ruining their own finances. Remember, aides were the Smart Whiz Kids who actually wrote ♡bamaCare!!!. Well, aides and lobbyists.
All of this comes via United Liberty, where Jason Pye adds:
The complaints from congressional staffers are understandable, because Obamacare is indeed taking a financial toll on Americans. But the problems were there before they creep inside the D.C. Beltway. They didn’t just magically appear when staffers realized that they’d be hit hard by the law.
Yeah, the needle is buried down on the left side of my sympathometer .
