IRS employee union: We don’t want Obamacare
#1
Quote:IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law.

National Taxpayer Employee 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.

Like most other federal workers, IRS employees currently get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which also covers members of Congress.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp offered the bill in response to reports of congressional negotiations that would exempt lawmakers and their staff from Obamacare.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"

If the public is required to use Obamacare, federal employees should and I'd go so far as to say the military should as well.

No need to keep the pain and misery for private citizen only.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

Clearly not the case in modern America. No surprise here.

LOL. They don't want Obamacare because they know it sucks as compared to their current health plan. The Gang of 535 on Capitol Hill a.k.a CONgress wanted to be exempt from the ACA too because they know their current health insurance plans are exceptionally better than anything Obamacare has to offer. I'd love to hear what Nancy Pelosi and other cheerleaders for it have to say if someone asked them to their face why they are exempting themselves and their staffers.

Healthplans for Congress and politicians and your average federal worker resemble each other as much as fire resembles water.

Your average federal workers health plan is exactly what you would find if you worked at most any other private job. When I worked for the army, my health insurance plan was no different than when I worked at a tech company in Boston...except the plan the army offered was more expensive.

But I still say, if the public has to go on the obama plan than the government workers should too.

And it goes without saying, that congress should be exempted from NOTHING the rest of us have to suffer through.

From having worked the private and public sectors I can say federal insurance is more expensive and provided less than that of my private sector employer.

I would have expected that ALL of the jobs would have been part-time, and thus provide no medical insurance. It seems pretty clear that the ultimate goal is to push as many people as possible into having to gett their insurance directly from the government.

You mean EVERYTHING from the government? Housing, food, insurance, etc.
