The Washington political class is well aware of what we all know to be certain: that ObamaCare is an unmitigated disaster.
The Democrat Members of Congress and staffers who wrote the 1,600 page monstrosity knew it would increase premiums and restrict individual choice. But the last thing President Obama wanted was to have the very Democrat congressmen and senators who passed ObamaCare to revolt on his signature legislation.
So what did he do? Obama directed the Office of Personnel Management to create a special exemption so Democrat Members of Congress and their staff could continue to receive federal contributions to their health plans.
That's right: President Obama issued an order to direct taxpayer funds to shield Democrat Members of Congress from the harmful effects of the very law they passed.
This is not only wrong -- but I also believe it's illegal. And, worse, it's indicative of the continued abuse of power and flagrant disregard of the Constitution by this President.
That's why I've decided to file a lawsuit against the Obama Administration.
It's crucial we stop Obama's rule by Presidential decree. It's critical that the law is applied equally to the political class.
If they don't like the law, then the Washington elite should be forced to pass another law to change it - or, preferably, repeal the whole thing.
Help me put pressure on Washington liberals and the Obama Administration to stop this special treatment for politicians.

Here is the bottom line that no one is even talking about. Obamacare was designed to fail from the outset. It does not include alternative medicine to compete against mainstream medicine which would give citizens the right to choose the form of health care you would prefer. You are not offered any choices. You get what you are given and anything else is off limits unless you want to pay for it yourself which may just become illegal for you to do. That is a major crime in our view. It destroys competition and alternative choices. It cuts out what may just save lives. Where are the liberals on this? Not a peep. Where are the conservatives on this? Also no peeps. Instead the politicians are just destroying your ability to have real choices in health care and making sure you pay a fortune for this tremendous lack of choices and lack of respect. Fire them all. And this guy is complaining about taxpayer funding for democrats? Please, that's only a small issue when you look at the overall bigger picture.
