The rest of congressional leadership, both Republicans and Democrats have directed their staffs to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges. Reid has decided not to issue such a directive. Some of his staff would prefer to keep their very generous federal worker healthcare plans. This staff helped create the the law, but no big deal.

Among the early Roosevelt fascist measures was the National Industry Recovery Act (NRA) of June 16, 1933 …. [these ideas] were first suggested by Gerard Swope (of the General Electric company)… They were adopted by the United States Chamber of Commerce. During the campaign of 1932, Henry I. Harriman, president of that body, urged that I agree to support these proposals, informing me that Mr. Roosevelt had agreed to do so. I tried to show him that this stuff was sheer fascism; that it was a remaking of Mussolini’s “corporate state” and refused to agree to any of it. He informed me that in view of my attitude, the business world would support Roosevelt with money and influence. That for the most part proved true.

In the wake of FDR, who despite the historical propaganda was far from a president who was universally loved, the American people moved to limit the terms of presidents to 2. FDR had wandered far too close to despotic rule (in some cases stepping over the line) during his tenure, and after his death America moved quickly to make sure that such a situation did not happen again. FDR had violated the tradition of Presidents stepping down after 2 terms. Now it needed to be codified, for the sake of the Republic.

Kathleen Sebelius recently praised the website without mentioning that the portal was also a paid federal contractor shilling for the administration.
The attached screen shot comes from this page at WhiteHouse.gov. It’s pretty amazing that no one at the White House has thought to take it down.
The citizens just didn’t understand you see…When the president said you could keep your plan and your doctor what he actually meant is that most of the plans would be canceled and you wouldn’t be able to keep your doctor… See it’s kind of funny if you think about it.
Well this makes sense. Why not just compound the incompetence? It’s not like it costs the taxpayers anything.
The unions don’t want to get too close to Obamacare for fear that the program might rub off on their plans.
The President knew that 7 in 10 people who bought individual health insurance policies would not be able to keep their policies when he said, “if you like your health plan, you will be able to keep your health plan, …If [you] already have health insurance, you will keep your health insurance.”
The “train wreck” continues.
