    Well if someone sees hypocrisy they usually call it out - since you didn't and I'm not a mind reader, what was I supposed to think?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it.

    I thought the problem was that the congress people, making in excess of $100k a year, will get a subsidy for their Obamacare even though the peons in society making less money will not get the subsidy.

    Ok - if the law is still in effect at that time I'm sure they will.
