I guess they finally read what was in the bill tax that teh won is so proud of.  Congressional critters make a salary.  A salary which many of the citizens of this country cannot come close to.   They signed on for this crap, now they should eat it just like the rest of us are being forced to do so.

Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.

The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.

I’m not shedding one tear for these creeps.  I’m fairly sure that you aren’t either.

Democratic and Republican leaders are taking the issue seriously, but first they need more specifics from the Office of Personnel Management on how the new rule should take effect — a decision that Capitol Hill sources expect by fall, at the latest. The administration has clammed up in advance of a ruling, sources on both sides of the aisle said.

If the issue isn’t resolved, and massive numbers of lawmakers and aides bolt, many on Capitol Hill fear it could lead to a brain drain just as Congress tackles a slew of weighty issues — like fights over the Tax Code and immigration reform.

via Obamacare? We were just leaving …

I’m dying here.  Brain drain in Congress?  Did I read that correctly because I think Congress is devoid of brain matter.
