Federal Government No Longer Has Any Legitimate Authority

dc-mordor

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. – Declaration of Independence, 1776

Mordor-On-The-Potomac (aka: Washington D.C.) is nothing more than a corrupt Beast, having usurped the Constitution and pursuing policies and plans that are reducing us under absolute Despotism.

Why do we continue to allow ourselves to be conquered by this evil?  When will Americans wake up and realize that the Federal Beast has no legitimate moral authority over us?  Rather all it has is guns they put to our heads while they practice lawlessness and flaunt their tyranny in our faces.

Like ObamaCare – everything in Washington is done in secret, behind closed doors, like the Old Soviet Union. The Ruling Class twists the arms of our supposed Representatives to vote for bills NONE OF THEM HAVE READ.  They sabotage anyone not in lockstep with their agenda of empowering the Beast, and select rulers from among themselves so as to silence the voice of this people.

No appropriate time is even given to read and study all these omnibus spending bills, regulatory bills and other such institutions of despotism being imposed on us.

The Latest Boehner middle finger to America: 2 year – 20 trillion dollar debt budget deal funds Obama’s entire agenda until after 2017

So Boehner hands Obama’s dictatorship another year after his term is supposedly up, funds everything Obama wants and eliminates the federal spending cap for the next 2 years, meaning Washington can spend whatever it wants on whatever it wants.

Ask yourself – if you are broke, can you call your credit card company and demand they raise your credit limit so you can spend tenfold more than your current overdue balance is ?  Can you tell your credit card company that you also will defer all payments for the next few years?  Then, after making these demands, you THREATEN them with non-payment if they do not do as you request?  You think you can get away with that?

The American Federal Government just did this.  And is getting away with it – to the absolute ruin of your children and grandchildren.  The entire Federal Government is CONSIGNING us and our progeny to unimaginable ruin, poverty and destruction.

Hillary Gets Absolved

A Congenital Liar that is responsible for killing Americans, enriching herself off the people, selling her office for donations while pursuing more power, are absolved from all their wrongdoing by grant from the Praetorian Pravda Media.  Joe Sixpack Businessman would rot in prison for even a minor infraction such as not backing up his e-mails much less setting up a secret server trading classified documents over the internet.  But Hillary is absolved.

Because in this new Despotism, some animals are more equal than others.

No Charges or Criminal Indictments For Corrupt IRS Head Lois Lerner thanks to self-investigation by Obama

Heads of agencies, using their office to attack, punish and eradicate political opposition after erasing the evidence of their treason against the American people, are exonerated and given cushy pensions we pay for.

Using the IRS to harass, punish and abolish Conservative and Christian groups is now an institution that is permissible under the Beast that rules us.

WashingtonBeast

So exactly why do we Americans allow ourselves to be subjugated by this evil tyranny?  What more evidence do we need to understand that the entirety of the Federal Government is wholly illegitimate?  From the Executive Branch, to the Legislative and Judicial branches, they have all demonstrated that they will usurp, violate, abolish by decree – and ignore THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES when it suits them.  They act OUTSIDE the bounds of the Constitution.  They abolished the Separation of Powers.  They have created a defacto dictatorship under the rule of oligarchs.  They will not follow the Rule of Law, rather they decree that the rule of law is whatever they say it is.

Then they declare that you ‘voted’ for this.

As such – the entirety of the Federal Government of the United States has no legitimate, moral authority under Heaven.  Instead, it is become an institution of Satan – and wholly evil, despite supposed ‘citizens’ this people think they send to Mordor to represent them in matters of Justice.

All this Beast in Washington has, are guns that it will put to your head to force your compliance with their edicts and tyranny.

Or are you more willing to suffer, because this evil is sufferable, rather than abolish this form of tyranny to which you are accustomed?

Pelosi On Billions Of Pork In Debt Bill: “What Difference Does It Make?”

PelosiIdiot

After all the bombastic shouts that Obama and the MarxoFascists wanted a “Clean” CR – the bill Obama signed is filled with BILLIONS of dollars in new pork spending.

The Tyrannical Queen of Lunacy – former Speaker Nancy Pelosi who famously told us that they had to pass Obamacare “so we can find out what is in it”, and who last week said of the train wreck Conservatives fought to defund: “We have to implement Obamacare before we can make any changes to it” – today exhibits the arrogance that is now a hallmark of the Ruling Class in D.C.

When asked about the BILLIONS of dollars in NEW PORK BARREL SPENDING – including  a 3 BILLION DOLLAR earmark for a project for Mitch McConnellHer Heinous says “What difference does it make? Why are we talking about this?”

Echoing a statement made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi dismissed reporters’ questions about pork inserted in the debt ceiling bill passed by Congress,CNS News reported Thursday.

“What difference does it make? Why are we talking about this? We’re talking about a bill that as I said last night, I’m not asking anybody to vote for this bill on the merits,” she said.

According to The Hill, the bill includes funds to fix flooded roads in Colorado, a $3 million appropriation for a civil liberties oversight board and a one-time payment of $174,000 to the widow of Sen. Frank Lautenberg, a millionaire New Jersey Democrat who died over the summer.

“My members have some of the same questions, not certainly in terms of the death penalty to the Lautenberg family, but when you have a CR, it is an appropriation, and this, yes would be the normal place for them to do that,” Pelosi said.

According to CNS, Pelosi argued the bill should have covered expenditures for a whole year instead of just a few months. She also argued the bill didn’t have enough spending.

We little people do not know what is best for us according to maniacs like Pelosi, Reid, Obama and that horde of MarxoFascist scum. They will tax us to death and spend it on whatever they want – and then extort us by threatening to default and by closing government and holding more threats over our heads like a sword of Damocles.  Imagine what they are going to do with your Healthcare when that becomes a tool for them to hold over your head.  Imagine them closing hospitals and butting up barricades to your doctor’s office because someone dares to oppose them and attempts to stop them spending us into oblivion.

It doesn’t take much to imagine them doing that does it?

Welcome to tyranny.

Get used to this and a whole lot more.

Game Over – GOP Ruling Class Forces Surrender And Makes Obama Dictator In The Process

GOP-Surrender-monkey

The GOP are Judenrats to the American people. Selling out our liberty and our children and children’s children to the tyranny of Obama and his party of MarxoFascists.

Obama’s Taxpayer-funded Credit Card?  Just had it’s credit limit raised by nearly a trillion dollars for the next several months.

ObamaCare? Here to stay and be imposed by force.

Amnesty and the right to vote given to Illegal Mexican insurgents?  A Done deal.

The demonization of Conservative Americans and TEA Party patriots has been unleashed and will now move into a criminalization phase.

What’s transformed here in this entire ‘crisis’ – is that Obama has assumed for himself, the power of the purse.  He has achieved that aspect of his coup by a complicit Congress who enjoy the unbridled power of government and were eager cowards to surrender to a tyrant’s threats.

We have little recourse left us.  We are taxed without any representation in Congress.  We are ignored, belittled, insulted and will end up with a jackboot on our necks and those of our children’s neck’s.

At this point an Article V Amendment convention is our last remaining peaceable option to resist tyranny.  If that fails or cannot get going due to the tyrants in Washington – our remaining liberty will require the use of deadly force to defend.  War will be necessary to resist what Obama and the cabal in Washington D.C. will impose on us.  In fact, we may be at that point already – we just don’t realize it yet.

But one by one, we are going to learn the pain of this tyranny.  The chains, shackles and vices of government are now going to be squeezed tighter and tighter around your neck – until we have no option but to submit and beg the Imperial masters in Washington for sustenance. Until and unless we defy, resist and refuse to comply with the tyranny from the Federal government.  Then, when they come for us – we do what is necessary.

We are way beyond the awkward stage.

The damage Obama has been done to liberty and the country is beyond considerable. Obama’s remaining time in office will witness his full wrath upon the America he hates in exceedingly greater amounts.

As with the Socialist despots & dictators of last century, Obama will continue to lament that time is imperative for him to achieve that which what he thinks he is “destined” to attain.

History teaches that when WWII  was coming to an end in Europe and Germany’s increasingly meager resources were being stretched beyond its capacity to fend off the Allies, the extermination of the Jews remained the singular priority pursued without abatement.  Resources were allocated despite shortages, undiminished up to the very end. Hitler was enraged that he was losing and blamed his own people for the fact they did not deserve his greatness.  Rather than surrender, he consigned his nation to utter destruction while furiously pursuing the extermination of those he hated most.

So will it be with Obama.

From this point forward, Obama will become increasingly more malevolent. He will put into action that which he has already meticulously planned to achieve, and have America implode in on itself while he prepares the rise of his utopia on our ashes.

If you think it is bad now – you have not seen anything yet.

Constitutional Debt Crisis: Obama Wants Power Of The Purse Or He Will Order Default

KingObamaFinger

Obama is forcing a Constitutional Crisis – by threatening to default on the nation’s debts – a power he does not have, unless he intends to usurp them from Congress.

Best explanation of the “debt-crisis’ and what Obama is attempting to do should he succeed.

H/T Mark Levin – Human Events

REP. MCCLINTOCK (R-CA) BREAKS DOWN THE DEBT CRISIS

Tom McClintock, Republican representative from California’s 4th District, spoke yesterday on the House floor, where he addressed the debt crisis and the madness surrounding the debt ceiling:

Mr. Speaker:

The debt limit exists for a simple reason: to assure that public debt isn’t recklessly piled up without Congress periodically acknowledging it and addressing the spending patterns that are causing it.  If a debt limit increase is supposed to be automatic, as the President suggests, there really is no purpose to it.

A new dimension has now appeared in this discussion.  Unlike every one of his predecessors, this President has vowed that unless Congress unconditionally raises the debt limit, the United States will default on its sovereign debt.

But a failure to raise the debt limit would not by itself cause the nation to default. The Government Accountability Office has consistently held that the Treasury Secretary has “the authority to choose the order in which to pay obligations of the United States” to protect the nation’s credit.  Such authority is inherent in the 1789 act that established the Treasury Department and entrusted it with the “management of the revenue” and the “support of public credit.”  The affirmative duty of the Treasury Department to do so is underscored by the 14th Amendment.

Our revenues are more than ten times our debt payments, so paying the debt first to prevent a sovereign default is well within the financial ability of the federal government – and indeed, it is a fiscal imperative.

Earlier this year, the House passed HR 807, which not only explicitly requires the payment of the national debt in the case of an impasse over the debt limit, but even allows the President to exceed the debt limit itself in order to protect the nation’s credit.

That measure languishes in the Senate under the threat of a Presidential veto.

Protecting the sovereign credit by prioritizing payments would mean delaying paying other bills – which is untenable, unthinkable and something much to be avoided.  But it would not imperil the nation’s sovereign credit.  Only the President can do that.

The House leadership met with the President last week and offered to extend the debt limit until November 22nd with no strings attached.  The President refused.  Senate Republicans offered a six month extension, but the Senate Democratic leader refused.

What the President threatens to do would be catastrophic and unprecedented.  The full faith and credit of the United States is what gives markets the confidence to loan money to the federal government.  Even a credible threat of default – exactly the kind the President is now making — could have dire consequences to a nation that now owes more than its entire economy produces in a year.

So where do we go from here?

Republicans have miscalculated on two key assumptions: First, that the Democrats would negotiate the issues that divide the country; they have not.  Second, that Democrats would seek to minimize the suffering caused by the impasse; they have not.

Given the ruthless and vindictive way the shutdown has been handled, I now believe that this President would willfully act to destroy the full faith and credit of the United States unless the Congress acquiesces to all of his demands, at least as long as he sees political advantage in doing so.  His every statement and action is consistent with this conclusion.

If the Republicans acquiesce, the immediate crisis will quickly vanish, credit markets will calm and public life will return to other matters.

But a fundamental element of our Constitution will have been destroyed.   The power of the purse will have shifted from the representatives of the people to the executive.  The executive bureaucracies will be freed to churn out ever more outlandish regulations with no effective Congressional review or check through the purse.  A perilous era will have begun, in which the President sets spending levels and vetoes any bill falling short of his demands.  Whenever a deadline approaches, one house can simply refuse to negotiate with the other until Congress is faced with the Hobson’s choice of a shut-down or a default.

The nation’s spending will again dangerously accelerate, the deficit will again rapidly widen, and the economic prosperity of the nation will continue to slowly bleed away.

This impasse may have started as a dispute over a collapsing health program but it has now taken on the dimensions of a Constitutional crisis.

Yesterday in Washington, a group of America’s veterans rose up to take a stand against these constitutional usurpations.  I believe the salvation of our nation now depends on the American people joining them.

Food Stamp Shutdown Threat: Obama To Incite Riots & Chaos?

Niggerriot

A letter is circulating from the USDA that directs state EBT/Food Stamp programs to suspend payment ‘until further notice’.

There is no such thing as coincidences when it comes to government tyranny.  Last weekend the EBT/SNAP foodstamp card program suddenly shut down and welfare cards were no longer working across 15 states.

Computer Glitch Blamed For Nationwide EBT System Shutdown On Saturday

People in Ohio, Michigan and 15 other states found themselves unable to use their food stamp debit-style cards on Saturday, after a routine test of backup systems by vendor Xerox Corp. resulted in a system failure.
Once it was learned that the “glitch” did not show account balances – and a local Walmart was honoring EBT purchases – the welfare mob descended on a Louisiana Walmart and emptied the shelves in under 2 hours.
I don’t believe a word they say.  I would not doubt for a SECOND that the EBT outage was a ‘dry run’ for what Obama plans to do to next in the solidification of his dictatorship.   Especially given what is circulating as a possibility this morning, that EBT/SNAP/Welfare benefits are going to cease beginning in November.  Fox News obtained a copy of a USDA letter allegedly sent out to all states.

USDA EBT Shutdown

A PDF of an official USDA document of a government shutdown plan corroborates the effects on EBT/Food Stamps/WIC and other benefits should the “lapse in funding” continue.  Pay close attention to the following excerpted segments:

Specific program impacts of a lapse in funding are provided below. These impacts assume that the lapse is of short duration (i.e., less than one month). Should the funding lapse be longer, the FNCS contingency plan and these associated impacts will be re-visited and updated:
• The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) will continue operations and eligible households will still receive monthly benefits for October. The authority to make October benefit payments comes from the Recovery Act, through which Congress provided “such sums as are necessary” to finance the SNAP benefit provided for in the Recovery Act. In addition, about $2 billion in contingency funding will be available and could be used to support State Administrative activities essential to continue the program and issue and process benefits. These contingency funds were provided in the FY 2013 appropriation and do not expire until the end of FY 2014.
• USDA is working with WIC State agencies to use all available funding resources to provide benefits to participants. FNS will be allocating both contingency and carryover funds to State agencies for use in operating their FY 2014 WIC Program, in addition to other available funds. Should a lapse extend through late October, federal WIC funding may not be sufficient to cover benefits.
• The Child Nutrition (CN) Programs, including School Lunch, School Breakfast, Child and Adult Care Feeding, Summer Food Service and Special Milk will continue operations into October. Meal providers are paid on a reimbursement basis 30 days after the end of the service month. Limited carryover funding will be available during a lapse to support FY 2014 meal service. Once an appropriation is enacted, we expect additional resources will be available to reimburse October performance. In addition, most State agencies will continue to have fiscal year 2013 funds available for State Administrative Expenses (SAE). SAE funds are awarded to States for a two year grant period and they are permitted to carryover up to 20 percent of their allocation into the second year of the grant period.
• No additional federal funds would be available to support the Commodity Assistance Programs (CAP) including the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) administrative funding, and the WIC Farmers’ Markets Nutrition Program (FMNP). Similarly, no new funds will be available to support the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR). While there would be some inventory available for use in food packages, no carryover, contingency or other funds would be available to support continued operations.

There are also threats of Section 8 housing benefits, heating assistance programs and other welfare benefits being shut down in MA as well.

Utah families on food stamps could be cut off soon

States across the country are being told to stop the supplemental nutrition assistance program for the month of November, pending further notice.

That’s according to a letter from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Fox 13 obtained a copy from the Crossroads Urban Center in downtown Salt Lake City. Crossroads says if Utah families don’t get food stamps, they’ll turn to the local food pantries, which are already strapped due to the government shutdown. Homeless people Fox 13 talked to, some who use SNAP, say losing food stamps would mean going hungry.

I think Obama wants the following kinds of optics to be blamed on his opponents in Congress and those Americans who are wise to his ‘fundamental transformation’:
ebt-signWalmartline niggers jump counter emptygroceryshelves
Considering that Obama has told the Federal government to make the shutdown “as painful as possible” – shutting down welfare/food stamps takes that policy and instantly creates misery for an army Obama would no doubt incite to riot and cause mayhem so to be used as a weapon for his demands and justification for dictatorial acts he is (I believe) about to commit.  My reasons for thinking this way are borne out of the following facts.
As the GOP has surrendered and is giving Obama nearly everything he wants – Obama is STILL rejecting their offers to reopen government and raise the debt ceiling until February.  Obama keeps talking and warning about ‘default’ in several speeches over the last few days.  In fact many Federal agencies are “warning” of no payments and massive pain if the country ‘defaults’.
To get his welfare army rioting to force his ascension to Absolute Ruler, why wouldn’t Obama stop food stamps/EBT/Welfare payments?  Looks like that plan is being implemented right before our eyes.
This course of action Obama seems hell-bent on is a sure bet to force Congress to give him what he demands.  It’s what Marxists do when they seize power.  Just look at history!
But here’s a fact not being discussed or even mentioned: we cannot ‘default’ according to the Constitution and the Feds have enough income to service the debt.
We cannot default on debt payments unless they are so massive we cannot make payments- not because of the debt ceiling fight.  Obama wants the debt ceiling raised to pay for future projects or to fast-track a Cloward-Piven style collapse. He is not wanting the debt ceiling raised TO PAY FOR BILLS WE OWE NOW.  Social security checks will be issued until the year 2038, in which time it is estimated to run dry. Congress took surplus out of SS fund and put them in the General Fund but Obama will use the threat of no Social Security checks, no EBT/food stamp benefits and whatever other threat of pain he can muster to frighten the country into capitulating to his tyranny.
The Feds have enough tax income to service the debt UNLESS – Obama himself  orders all payments of everything to stop.  In doing so Obama may be attempting to make Congress irrelevant, and co-op the power of the purse for himself. That seems to match his M.O. to me.  This is a coup going on – an installation of a dictatorial Single Party tyranny.  Obama is on a destroy mission – he’s not interested in governing, he’s consumed with destroying anyone who opposes him, the hallmark of all despotic Leftists that have come on the world scene in modern history.
…How would Obama …justify seizing emergency power? By cutting off all federal entitlement payments while claiming that he cannot continue them without a debt extension, secure in the knowledge that the mainstream media will continue to dutifully serve as his propaganda arm, blaming recalcitrant Republicans for all of the negative consequences.
While senior citizens on Social Security and other federal pension plan recipients may not immediately take to the streets, going on violent rampages of rioting, looting and burning, there is a segment of our population that will do exactly that: many of the 50 million Americans who today literally put the food on their tables by using an Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card. While the states administer their individual EBT programs, most of the money comes from the federal government. Please read my previous essay “When the music stops: how America’s cities may explode in violence” to understand the tremendous risk that will accompany a cutoff—even briefly—of EBT payments.

The fact that thousands of Americans might be injured or killed during the nationwide riots that would follow the looting of supermarkets and delivery trucks will not be a moral impediment to the architects of Operation Fast and Furious…

…A lifelong Marxist revolutionary who has caused hundreds to be murdered in an attempt at political gain on gun control is not likely to blanch at the prospect of thousands dying in bloody food riots when the stakes are incalculably higher. If “the music stops” and our cities burn, Obama may grasp the opportunity to declare a state of emergency and seize dictatorial powers from the fire and ashes. Those who resist his rule by emergency decree will be declared to be “Tea Party terrorists” by Democrat leaders and their captive media, and we may finally see why the Department of Homeland Security has been purchasing those billions of hollow-point bullets, UAV drones, and armored vehicles.

If this is their calculation, it is a diabolical plan indeed. But a plan to ride a tiger is not the same as riding the tiger. Permanent rule by emergency decree may not be as simple to accomplish as would-be left-wing tyrants believe. Millions of Americans will not be fooled by the deliberately instigated torching of our cities and will not go quietly into the night of Marxist tyranny.

Obama Threatens America With Pain & Punishment If He Does Not Get His Way

obama-threatens

The Petulant Imperial Man-Child of a president threatens Social Security Checks for Seniors and warns Wall Street of economic tumult if his agenda is not funded and the debt ceiling raised.

Imagine what His Heinous will do when he has ObamaCare to use as a sword of Damocles over our heads?

Fast-forward to 2016: the government is bankrupt and the dollar is collapsing and  approaching worthlessness.  Congress is working on cutting ridiculous entitlements to keep the ship of state afloat, and Obama announces that he will shut down everyone’s Healthcare insurance  if they do not capitulate to his demands for more spending.  Thereupon his storm trooping media sycophants will screech that Obama’s opponents will be KILLING innocent Americans who will not be able to get healthcare.

So Obama is moving from the government shutdown to threatening the rest of America with economic shutdown if Congress does not raise the debt limit.
Speaking of which, if you are maxed-out on your credit cards, which of you can threaten and demand your banks and stores raise your credit limit so you can keep charging on your card????

Apparently Obama and the federal government think they can so that with our 100-trillion dollar debt, larger than all the wealth on the planet combined.

So to extort his way, Obama yesterday attempted to freak out Senior citizens by indicating their checks will not go out if “Republicans refuse to raise the debt limit” and then attempted to freak out Wall Street by warning of the dangers of a failure to raise the credit limit for more federal spending.

I think this is all theater so that when Obama raises the debt limit by his own royal Decree – he thinks Americans will applaud another Imperial Dictate so as to thwart the consequences he threatened us with yesterday.

If he can’t get what he wants, he is going to circumvent the United States Constitution, and he will be applauded for it, because he will have, “saved the economy”, “saved Social Security”, “saved the world’s financial system” because we have to pay our bills, you see?

And I smell this a mile away.

And he’s being encouraged repeatedly by pseudo-intellectuals, by Marxists dressed up as Constitutionalists, by people in his own party, he’s being encouraged to conduct himself as a dictator, and to bypass Congress and to bypass the Constitution, why work with him?

So he’s greased the skids for what he intends to do by threatening Seniors and those receiving Social Security:

Obama Warns Social Security Checks Will Be Delayed Absent Debt Limit Hike

Seniors who rely on their Social Security checks might want to start pinching their pennies.

President Barack Obama warned Thursday that Social Security checks will be delayed if Congress doesn’t raise the debt limit soon — one consequence of what he warned would be an “economic shutdown.”

If the debt limit isn’t raised, Social Security checks “don’t go out on time,” the president said at an event in Rockville, Md.

Obama’s warning about Social Security checks came on the heels of a Treasury Department report, released Thursday morning, warning of the worst economic catastrophe since the Great Depression if Congress fails to act.

Then he threatened Wall Street with tumult:

Obama warns world markets there is no guarantee U.S. will avoid defaulting on its debts

An ‘exasperated’ Barack Obama offered no guarantees the U.S. would avoid an unprecedented default during a crisis meeting with Wall Street bankers yesterday.

The President said it could not be taken for granted that the political infighting over the federal shutdown would ease in time to raise the legal debt limit before the October 17 deadline.

Obama Warns of Financial Tumult: Markets ‘Should be Concerned’

During an interview with CNBC, President Barack Obama told NBC News reporter John Harwoodthat financial markets “should be concerned.” Asked about the apparent lack of concern over the government shutdown displayed in the stock market, Obama said that he spoke with individuals in the financial industry and warned them of the grave consequences of default if the debt ceiling is not raised.

Obama is going to set the fire, watch it burn and fiddle around and then come in as the savior by issuing an Imperial Decree, circumventing Congress and declaring his actions necessary.

Obama Decrees Congress And Their Aides Absolved From Pain of ObamaCare

O'DuceObamCare

Taxpayers will foot the bill for Congress members and their staff’s ObamaCare Premiums. 

Once again, Washington proves that it will absolve itself from all the rules, decrees and laws it imposes on us little people.  They mandate ‘ObamaCare for thee, but not for we’.  You see, the Congress Creatures complained that ObamaCare was going to be too costly for their 70 – 100k per year staffers and Federal Employees who were considering fleeing Washington with their Cadillac healthcare plans intact.  The very creatures who passed this heinous law on us, were complaining that it is too costly for THEM and their staffers and they were worried that many of them would leave Washington.

ObamaCare includes a provision, inserted by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), that requires members of Congress and their staffs to buy insurance through Obamacare, just like they require the rest of the American people they foisted this law upon.  As a result – Congress and their staffs were complaining that ObamaCare would be too costly for them to be a part of and they sought exemption from the law.

The Blaze reports:

For months we’ve been hearing from both Republicans and Democrats in Washington, D.C. terrified that the implementation of Obamacare would decimate their staffs. Some senators and congressmen talked about a serious “brain drain” in Washington when their staff members leave. Congressman John Larson (D-Conn.), who voted for the health care law, said making the law apply to elected officials and their staffers was “simply not fair.”

The problem stems from the same issue other Americans have with the looming arrival of Obamacare: insurance premiums set to increase for just about everyone in the country. And people whose employers offer “Cadillac” coverage (like Congress and their staffers receive) will be hit harder.

Back in June, John Boehner and Harry Reid engaged in some kabuki theater – with Boehner pretending to want a full repeal of ObamaCare while secretly meeting with Harry Reid and Obama to find  a way to exempt themselves and Congress from the pain of ObamaCare.  Boehner has killed every effort made to DEFUND ObamaCare in the House, and is thwarting efforts by Rep. Mike Lee and Ted Cruz to make defunding ObamaCare part of the Continuing Budget Resolution of the debt ceiling in September.  Congress was crying aloud for Dear Leader to do something to spare them compliance with ObamaCare.  So Obama obliged them this week:

On Thursday, President Barack Obama met with congressional Democrats to discuss the problem, and reportedly told his team that he was “on it.” Friday morning brings many reports that a deal had been struck. Politico reported that the Office of Personnel Management intends to rule that the government may continue to contribute to the health care premiums of lawmakers and their staff.

The ruling means that despite an amendment that made all members of Congress and their staffs subject to the same law they are imposing on the rest of America, they won’t have to pay for it. Instead, taxpayers will be footing the bill.

‘Aint living in a dictatorial mobocracy of Socialists great?
