Harry Exempts Staff From Obamacare

Washington — Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, one of Obamacare’s architects and staunchest supporters, is also the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the law’s new exchanges.

Reid is the exception among the other top congressional leaders. GOP House Speaker John Boehner, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell have all directed their staffs to join the exchange, their aides said.

In the charged atmosphere surrounding Obamacare, Reid’s decision only gives Republicans more ammo to attack Democrats already suffering politically from the law’s botched rollout.

In September, Reid told reporters, “Let’s stop these really juvenile political games — the one dealing with health care for senators and House members and our staff. We are going to be part of exchanges, that’s what the law says and we’ll be part of that.”

    This tyranny will not end with Obama … Hillary in 2016 will continue …. why? Because republicans voters and elected republicans will fight among themselves as to who is a RINO and who is conservative and the democrats win again!

    The party to eliminate RINO’s is headquartered in California, buyer beware!

    Let’s not fight a war of ideology, like leftist liberals always do, we need to elect more republicans of all backgrounds to beat back this tyranny!
