In the Blatant Outrage Department…

Now THIS is just plain CRIMINAL!

From Human Events


Is anyone truly surprised by this news, outside of a few dead-end Obama voters? There’s no way Congress was going to be part of the “train wreck” it inflicted upon the rest of America, to borrow retiring Democrat senator (and ObamaCare author) Max Baucus’ memorable phrase. The most urgent item on the American agenda is the full repeal of ObamaCare, but the political class is more interested in repealing it for themselves, as reported by Politico:

Congressional leaders in both parties are engaged in high-level, confidential talks about exempting lawmakers and Capitol Hill aides from the insurance exchanges they are mandated to join as part of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, sources in both parties said.

The talks — which involve Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), the Obama administration and other top lawmakers — are extraordinarily sensitive, with both sides acutely aware of the potential for political fallout from giving carve-outs from the hugely controversial law to 535 lawmakers and thousands of their aides. Discussions have stretched out for months, sources said.

As has been suggested here before, perhaps it really is time a bill was passed to start stringing these Capital Hill sleazeballs up from the lampposts! Unlike their predecessors of yore, these filthy creatures don’t give a damn about the country they have been elected to serve, not at all; These corrupt lowlifes are only in it for themselves, and to hell with we, the people.

The whole story is here.

    A clear case of do as we say, not as we do. Clearly what is good for the plebeians is not acceptable for the ruling class. I was always told to beware of any politician or group that uses the terms ‘the people’ or ‘the masses,’ both are a cover for dictators.

    …beware of any politician or group that uses the terms ‘the people’ or ‘the masses,’ both are a cover for dictators.

    It’s the same with almost every challenge we get to our liberties courtesy of our government; For some reason the policies they push on us don’t necessarily apply to the politicians peddling them, just to “we, the proletariat”.

    While our youth sleeps, we seem to be headed in the direction of some sort of dictatorship…
