IRS employees refuse to get shoved into Barack Obama’s crappy health care system
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates that about 6 million people of various ages will instead pay the tax penalty for not having insurance in 2014. It’s hard to estimate how many of those will be the young and healthy adults that insurers need in the system to offset costs for older, sicker beneficiaries. Obama acknowledged “glitches” in implementing the sweeping law on a massive industry. Earlier this month the administration announced a one-year delay in a major provision requiring companies to provide coverage for their workers. Obama noted with approval that some states are anticipating lower premiums because of the health insurance marketplaces that are being set up so consumers can comparison shop for the coverage. Among those states are California, Oregon, Washington and New York.

All thats left now is for the navigators hired to shepherd confused Americans through the paperwork maze to unionize and demand a waiver from ObamaCare. Im not sure if thats sarcasm or prophecy. From the Washington Examiner : National Taxpayer Employee Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obamas health care law. The union leaders are providingmembers 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. This is actually fallout from a previous embarrassing no ObamaCare for us! spectacle, in which congressional representatives began moaning that they cant possibly retain the gigantic imperial retinue of staffers they deserve, if they have to start managing their offices under the same terms they cheerfully imposed upon private-sector businesses. Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI), chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, introduced a bill that would push every federal worker into the ObamaCare exchanges, the same way Barack Obama is trying to shove every American into the public exchanges. Thats where you end up when your employer realizes Obama is offering him cash-money incentives to kill your health care plan, as well as cut your hours back to part-time, if possible.
