Back on March 24, I posted editorials from the NY Post and the Washington Times stating that Congress had exempted itself from Obamacare. Well, it appears a) that the Post and the Times may have been a bit hasty and b) that Her Highness, Nancy Pelosi, was right in telling us that we’d know what was in it when they passed it. Somehow I don’t think this is what she meant. Hmmmmmmmm……
I don’t normally pay much attention to anything the NY Times has to say, but this is interesting, to say the least. I think it’s positively Schadenfreudelicious.
…theoretically the law kicks them out of the federal health plan now in order to force them to join insurance exchanges … that don’t exist yet. Looking forward to tomorrow, when we’re inevitably told that they meant to do that. Exit question for lawyers: Who would have standing to sue to force the federal health plan to drop Congress now? Any citizen, or is it more refined than that?
At this point, I really don’t care who would have standing to sue. I just want this thing gone.
Nunspeak has a terrific take on the situation, one that is naturally less snarky than mine. Thank you, Sister Lisa.
