I personally have no idea why these asshats were allowed an exclusion in the first place. They shouldn't have.
I have no idea either but like I keep repeating and repeating!
CONGRESS HAD A CLAUSE IN OBAMACARE THAT EXEMPTED THEM FROM THE SAME SYSTEM AS YOU OR I!!!!!
Surely most Americans would want congress held to the same standard. So they can debate point 1 and get the government open again.
I'm starting to see why this "small minority" is fighting so hard now. As more facts are coming out Congress might actually have to agree to obamacare standards for themselves!
