Hypocrite IRS Union That Wants To Force All OTHER Americans To Purchase ObamaCare Demands Opt-Out FROM ObamaCare

July 26, 2013

The dishonesty, hypocrisy and arrogance of the government elite class stands fully revealed.

What was ObamaCare ever about?  It was all about making massive, all-powerful, all-controlling liberal fascist government even more massive and even more powerful and give it even more control over every detail of the peoples’ lives.  Before the beast of the Book of Revelation comes to finish the government-as-god job Obama started.

Obama wanted one nation, under Government.  And liberals crawled from every corner to help him attain that.  ObamaCare is a mess (even DEMOCRATS know that!) and everybody knows that it is a complete disaster.  But health care was never their goal; control was their goal and they got what they wanted.

So now the union that represents the IRS – and which overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama AND his demonic ObamaCare takeover of our health care system – demands that they not be held accountable to the stinking pile of ObamaCare “train wreck” that they massively grew to impose on all other Americans.

Let’s get this straight: this is an INCREDIBLY partisan union that overwhelmingly supported Obama in 2008 and again in 2012:

As the Washington Examiner’s Tim Carney and others have pointed out, the agency’s employees are heavily engaged in politics and lean considerably to the left. Records show that IRS employees in 2012 donated more than twice as much to the Obama as to the Romney campaign. Nearly two-thirds of all employee contributions over the last three elections cycles have gone to Democrats.

Sweetness and Light reports the press releases of this heavily partisan and biased union for heavily partisan and biased IRS employees.  This is a group of people who worshiped Obama and took his mark on their right hands or their foreheads.  But they won’t accept the signature achievement of the turd they supported.  Because that’s fecal matter that only LITTLE PEOPLE should have to be forced to eat.

Here’s the story from Forbes:

IRS Employees Union Is ‘Very Concerned’ About Being Required To Enroll In Obamacare’s Health Insurance Exchanges
Avik Roy Avik Roy, Contributor

In the private sector, many workers are concerned about losing their employer-sponsored health insurance coverage, and being dumped into Obamacare’s subsidized insurance exchanges. Two weeks ago, representatives of three large labor unions fired off a harsh letter to Democratic leaders in Congress, complaining that Obamacare would “shatter…our hard-earned health benefits” and create “nightmare scenarios” for their members. Today, we learn that the National Treasury Employees Union—the union that includes employees of the Internal Revenue Service—is asking its members to write letters to their Congressmen, stating that they are “very concerned” about legislative efforts requiring IRS and Treasury employees to enroll in the Obamacare exchanges.

“I am a federal employee and one of your constituents,” the letter begins. “I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act (ACA).”

Rep. Dave Camp (R., Mich.), the representative referred to in the letter, is chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, the committee in the House that is responsible for tax legislation. (Obamacare’s insurance subsidies are technically tax credits.) In April, Camp introduced legislation to put all federal employees on the exchanges, in response to reports that members of Congress and their staff were seeking an exemption from the provision in Obamacare that requires them to enroll in the exchanges.

“If the ObamaCare exchanges are good enough for the hardworking Americans and small businesses the law claims to help, then they should be good enough for the president, vice president, Congress, and federal employees,” said Camp’s spokeswoman in a statement at the time.

There is one legitimate issue regarding members of Congress and their staff enrolling in the exchanges. Today, federal employees are offered subsidies, or vouchers, which they can use to shop for insurance on the popular federal employees’ exchange, called the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program. Because Obamacare was drafted so hastily, it’s not clear whether the law allows similar subsidies to flow to federal employees on the Obamacare exchanges.

We’re still awaiting a ruling from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management on that front. For inexplicable reasons, OPM has not clarified whether or not the government will be allowed to funnel subsidies through the Obamacare exchanges.

Nonetheless, it would be a very good thing for some federal employees to eat their own cooking, especially those who work for Congress, the IRS and the Department of Health and Human Services. They’re the ones who are writing the Obamacare regulations; they’re the ones who, in many cases, wrote the law itself. The IRS enforces Obamacare’s individual mandate and eligibility for the exchange subsidies, among other provisions.

They should be required to enroll in the same Obamacare exchanges that tens of millions of private citizens will have to. They should have to experience the same premium increases and limited flexibility that other Americans will endure there. Maybe then, we’ll start to build a constituency for market-based reform.

Here’s what the NTEU (The National Treasury Employees Union that represents the IRS employees who savagely and fascistically targeted Obama’s political enemies said of their efforts for their messiah Obama:

NTEU Leader Applauds Obama Victory; Turns Immediate Focus to Upcoming Lame-Duck Session
Wednesday, November 7 2012

Washington, D.C.—The leader of the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) today applauded the re-election of President Barack Obama.

“NTEU supported the re-election of President Obama as being in the best interests of our country and of the dedicated men and women of the federal workforce,” said NTEU President Colleen M. Kelley. “NTEU is also pleased that so many of our candidates for Senate seats and our staunchest supporters in the House won their races.”

NTEU’s efforts on behalf of President Obama and key candidates spanned the country. “Our 2012 election plan has been in place since the beginning of the year,” said President Kelley. “Many chapters and members were actively involved educating and organizing various types of activities around the country including candidate nights and volunteering for campaigns.”

NTEU’s efforts focused on battleground states where races for the presidency, Senate and House seats were competitive and where the union has substantial numbers of NTEU members including Virginia, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Indiana.

In the days before the election, NTEU members volunteered for phone-banking and canvassing, with a particular focus on contacting other NTEU members and urging them to vote for candidates who support federal employees and federal employee issues.

“Federal employees heard our message loud and clear that everything about the lives of the federal workforce is determined by those elected to office,” said Kelley.

Unlike his opponent in the presidential election, Kelley said, the president is keenly aware of the risks to the effective delivery of vital government services posed by proposals to sharply reduce the federal workforce and cut the budgets of federal agencies.

“In a very real sense, these are make-or-break issues for our country,” Kelley said. “Federal agencies simply must have the resources and personnel they need to carry out their missions,” she added, noting the effective work of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the wake of the storm that battered the east coast in late October.

Of course, these dishonest government cockroaches who want to impose by raw government power that which they arrogantly and hypocritically refuse for themselves doesn’t mention that part of their electioneering activities for their messiah included targeting Republican candidates, Romney campaign donors, more than 500 conservative and Tea Party groups, Christian organizations, Pro-Israel Jewish organizations, and pretty much anybody who didn’t worship their messiah Obama.  If you don’t believe that Obama sicked the Internal Revenge Service on these groups out of pure partisan hatred, you are pathetically stupid and please don’t waste my time with your idiocy.

They also dishonestly failed to mention that “candidates who support federal employees and federal employee issues” wanted ObamaCare – which they now say is evil.  Nor do they want the government “to carry out their missions” of imposing that evil, demonic ObamaCare on the unions that so ardently worshiped Obama and helped impose his evil agenda on the rest of America.

These people are roaches crawling on the most rancid dung pile.  They are from the government, and they are here to hurt you.

This is the essence of liberal socialism: they use other people’s money to impose other people’s healthcare on other people – as long as they be exempted from what they want to impose on other people.

Pardon my language here, but this is the bottom line: you people who cooked this vile shit up, you need to eat it too.
