Exempt Me, Too!
Here is a column by AFP President, Tim Phillips, on the roll out of the Affordable Care Act.
“Obama claimed, “If you like your plan, you can keep it,” unless you’re an average American citizen, that is. As costs rise, healthcare options dwindle, and businesses take preventative measures to minimize the negative impact of ObamaCare, more and more of the well-connected and elites have taken measures to excuse themselves from the burdens the law brings. Obama’s promise of healthcare for all, has quickly become healthcare that no one wants.
When ObamaCare was introduced, Congressman Chuck Grassley inserted an amendment that required all of Congress to buy into this form of healthcare. But since then grumbles and complaints have been heard on Capitol Hill over the prospect of losing their top-notch, taxpayer-funded plans to a relatively burdensome alternative. All the griping begs the question; if ObamaCare isn’t good enough for the lawmakers who voted for it, why should our families have to be stuck with this healthcare?”
