Baffled by Health Plan? So Are Some Lawmakers
By ROBERT PEAR

WASHINGTON — It is often said that the new health care law will affect almost every American in some way. And, perhaps fittingly if unintentionally, no one may be more affected than members of Congress themselves.

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members.

For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

The “party of yes” turns out to be a bunch of total freaking idiots who didn’t have a clue what they were saying “yes” to.

I’m reminded of Nancy Pelosi’s words:

“But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it, away from the fog of the controversy.”

We might be able to get away from the fog of controversy, but we will never get away from the fog of absolute stupidity as long as Democrats are in control of anything.

You’d better be ready to scramble for a new health care plan.  Because it very much appears that Obama’s “If you’re happy with the plan you have, you can keep it” slogan is bound for the toilet bowl of broken promises.
