ObamaCare May Lead To Exodus From Capitol Hill

Yet another unintended consequence of ObamaCare may be revealing itself, according to Politico:

Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.

The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.

Oh, my. Forced to live under the same laws as the rest of us, many lawmakers just can’t seem to handle the pressure; some are even considering bolting.

Nancy Pelosi once famously said we had to pass ObamaCare to find out what was in it. It looks like the very people who passed it are not liking what they’re discovering in it.
