Oooh, I think that's a fine for you!

Oh my! Apparently, lawmakers are a bit flummoxed by their own handiwork:
The law apparently bars members of Congress from the federal employees health program, on the assumption that lawmakers should join many of their constituents in getting coverage through new state-based markets known as insurance exchanges.
Well, since those insurance exchanges do not yet exist, that leaves them without an insurance plan. *gasp!* What?!
(Maybe a "Read the Bill" piece of legislation should have passed BEFORE the healthcare vote?) These are the folks who kept telling their constituents at Town Hall meetings across the country during their August recess that they knew what was best for us?!

When John Yarmuth, Louisville's Congressman (District 3), held a Town Hall for doctors only during the August recess, he told them that he knew they didn't want the legislation but he was going to vote for what he thought was best. I suppose he was right. Trust fund babies ALWAYS know what's best for everyone else, don't they? Well, John, I personally hope you get fined for being without a healthcare plan.

It's time to bring 'em all home, folks. Obviously, they care more for their party than they do for their constituents. It's time for them to GOOOH!
