Watch the movie Snitch. True story. No sense in locking up first or second time offenders unless the circumstances warrant it.

If your employer provides insurance coverage you get the same “subsidy” now and after the law is in effect. The Grassly amendment tried to change the rules for Congress by changing the law to include something that no one (even you) want and that is being forced to drop their insurance. Bottom line if you have insurance you are unaffected by the law and Congress would also be unaffected. While I dont like Congress they are in fact treated just like all coveraged individuals with insurance.

Let me rephrase...health insurance you have to have whether you want it or not, and you have to pay for on the open exchange....but members of Congress whined and said it was too expensive, so Osama Obama put in huge subsidies for these cronies.

An email has been circulating in various forms since at least 2000. But it’s still circulating. A reader who recently received a version of the email forwarded it to PolitiFact Ohio asking about its accuracy.  The chain email's statement about Congressional exemptions is ridiculously out of date. At worst, it is cynically inaccurate.On the Truth-O-Meter, it rates Pants on Fire!

You little right wingers are so funny...

"On the assertion that Members of Congress are exempt from the provisions of the Affordable Care Act: also false," he wrote. "Members of Congress are subject under the health care reform law to the same mandate that others are to purchase insurance, and their plans must have the same minimum standards of benefits that other insurance plans will have to meet. Members of Congress currently have not a gold-plated free plan but the same insurance options that most other federal employees have, and they do not have it provided for free. They have a generous subsidy for their premiums, but no more generous (and compared to many businesses or professions less generous) than standard employer-provided subsidies throughout the country."

Have to make room for when the anticipated civil disobedience begins. You know, the mandated health insurance that is good enough for you, but not the government. By the way...shouldn't Holder be in prison himself by now?
