The Lifeguard, and the rest of taxpaying America, are about to get rogered as ObamaCare goes into effect for some (but not all) Americans. In fact, thanks to President Obama's efforts, Congressional staffers--who, on average earn more than you--will get an ObamaCare exemption.
Congress feared that there would be a "brain drain" if the exemption weren't crafted. Of course, this begs the question, why didn't the staffers get it right the first time? The truth is, America might be better off if the geniuses on Capitol Hill took a long walk off a very short pier, environmental concerns be damned.
The staffers could have put whatever they wanted in the Affordable Care Act, knowing that no one was going to read it until after it was passed. Subsidies? Yep. Free gym memberships? Sure. Car allowances? Natch.
The social experiment should be over now. Before things get anymore out of hand. Of course, when there aren't any adults in the room, and President Obama is on Leno, expect things to be an absolute horror show.
