    Of all the many fatal flaws in Obamacare, this one is by far the most delicious!

    Not to worry. If this little "wrinkle" costs the congresscritters money, they'll fix it.

    But do the politics of the situation really allow that?

    I'd say pay the $500 penalty (or whatever it would be at their salary level), but from what I understand, DC is not the most healthy of places to be living these days - might want to keep that insurance. Sucks for them (hopefully)

    Of course.

    Remember how quickly the Congress acted to reduce flight delays due to the "sequester" when it came time for them to fly home? When it affects them personally, even Congress can put aside partisan bickering and political games and pass a meaningful bill.

    But the flight delay threat had general applicability. This doesn't. And even though Republican members have a personal interest in this, many of them would pay a huge political price for enabling an Obamacare "fix".

    Interesting and pretty cool, but wasn't the right wing whining that congress was exempt from Obamacare? Isn't that one of the claims that they have been spouting that congress doesn't have to participate in Obamacare?

    LOL!!!

    Looks to me like the Republicans offered the Democrats a bunch of rope...and the Democrats cheerfully tied a noose around their neck in their zeal to get Obamacare passed. Now the noose is tightening and the Democrats don't know how to untie the rope. The best thing they could do is repeal the whole damned thing because there are probably a bunch more nooses out there just waiting to be felt.

    Sucks to be a Democrat right now.

    Wow, that is terrible. Hey, can you imagine not being wealthy and trying to pay for health insurance?
