Older Democratic staffers on Capitol Hill likely supported their bosses’ decisions to back the president on Obamacare because they, like tens of millions of others, believed all of Obama’s BS promises about the law.
Well, they too are finding out, like the rest of us, that what was promised and what is reality regarding Obamacare are two completely different things.
Take the price of plans, for instance. Obama promised repeatedly that not only could Americans keep their plans but he would “work with employers” to reduce the annual cost of premiums “by $2,500.”
Yeah, that’s not happening either, as these older Dem staffers are now finding out.
According to Politico:
Veteran House Democratic aides are sick over the insurance prices they’ll pay under Obamacare, and they’re scrambling to find a cure.
“In a shock to the system, the older staff in my office (folks over 59) have now found out their personal health insurance costs (even with the government contribution) have gone up 3-4 times what they were paying before,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), wrote to fellow Democratic chiefs of staff in an email message obtained by POLITICO. “Simply unacceptable.”
