IRS Employees Will Enforce Obamacare, Opposed to Having Obamacare


hcr-1

Obamacare reminds me of those clothing donations of old dirty shirts that no one actually wants, but everyone assumes that someone out there is desperate enough to want. And so that’s why we turned it into a national policy.

IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law.

National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obama’s health care law.

The union leaders are providing members with a form letter to send to the congressmen that says “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 and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.”

The NTEU represents 150,000 federal employees overall, including most of the nearly 100,000 IRS workers.

If we’re going to force Obamacare on everyone, then maybe that should include the government employees responsible for this mess.

None of the people who created Obamacare, the politicians or government figures, wants it. Instead it’s something that in their generosity of spirit, they are forcing on us.

    I wonder why. Could it be that it’s because the health plan that they have, that we pay for is a free? What scumbags!

    We need the IRS to stay healthy to enforce the law!

    It’s a civil right. Why don’t they want to claim their civil rights?

    Just one of the problems with Obamacare is the difference between health insurance and health care. The exchanges are set to pay health expenses at a rate pegged to Medicaid. Already, a third of doctors do not accept new or any Medicaid patients because of the low pay rates. Obamacare exasperates that. None of these unions want their members to have health insurance they cannot use because health providers do not accept it.

    The text of the bill (http://beta.congress.gov/bill/… they are advising against requires federal employees as defined by US Code title 5, section 2105 not be provided employer provided insurance leaving them for the exchanges. USC5-2105 (http://www.law.cornell.edu/usc… section a1C includes the US military as federal employees. An Army Private First Class (E-3) stationed overseas and deployed to Afghanistan with less than two years in service makes $1787 base pay (hazardous duty, cola, etc add to that). Where and how is he/she going to buy insurance. Where is he/she going to find a doctor willing to accept the exchange’s insurance?
