"Democratic leaders said Thursday theyre not seeking an exemption from a central requirement of ObamaCare that members of Congress and their staff purchase healthcare coverage through insurance exchanges."
I don't trust Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi any further than I can throw them, and John Boehner and Mitch McConnell are all foam and no beer.
Do you believe them?
What I believe is this, and it’s just a theory: I think the Dems tried to pull this off, and I think they tried to include some GOP members. As bad and incompetent as the GOP is, I don’t think the GOP ever went along with this. Yes, I know the headline said the parties were meeting on this, but when you read the original quotes from the GOP folks, it doesn’t appear they were ever for it. Meeting on a subject is not the same thing as agreeing on it necessarily.
The headline said one thing, but the article said the other. Now, I think the Dems are embarrassed, and trying to walk it back. I think the Politico was trying to establish discord on the right. And in this case, I think even the flacid tepid and sometimes corrupt GOP was actually correct. Am I 100% sure? Nope, and it bears watching, but that’s how I read this particular situation.
