IRS Workers Union Says They Don’t Want Obamacare Themselves

 



unionIf Obamacare was such a good idea, congressmen wouldn’t be trying to find exceptions for themselves. If it was such a good policy, unions wouldn’t be already turning against it. If it was such a good idea, then the IRS workers union especially wouldn’t be against it, especially since the IRS is enforcing Obamacare.

But, unfortunately for Obama’s plummeting approval rating, the IRS workers union doesn’t want Obamacare. Instead, they want their special government insurance program — they want a different program than what regular Americans are forced to use.

This is asinine. If the rest of us are forced to use a broken system, then all government employees should as well. Anything else is just elitism, proves that they think the policies are actually horrible, and allow the political class to get away with whatever they want.

The Washington Examiner reports:

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.

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.

Click “recommend” if you think they should be forced to use Obamacare just like the rest of us:

They should all have to live like us common folks and be afforded the same health care.  I'm guessing some of them actually read what was in it.

I agree! If it's awesome for the peasants, it should be just as awesome (if not even MORE awesome) for the imperial majesty.
