First, it was big labor.

And now from another unlikely critic, the IRS union is thumbing it's nose at "Obamacare."

CNS News is reporting, The National Treasury Employees Union is urging its members to oppose legislation that would force federal employees off their government healthcare plans and onto the state and national healthcare exchanges established under "Obamacare,"

Members of Congress and their staffers are already required to participate in the exchanges, which will go into effect next October 1st under the Affordable Care Act.

However, a bill (HR 1780) introduced in April by Rep. David Camp (R-Mich.) would extend that requirement to all federal employees, an idea that does not sit well with the union.

So NTEU is strongly urging its members, including the Internal Revenue Service agents tasked with implementing Obamacare, to oppose Camp's legislation, which would compel them to personally participate in the same healthcare program they will be enforcing.

If you sent this in to a book publisher, they'd throw it in the trash.

It all doesn't make sense, neither does the president's health care plan.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Thanks for calling me Ron Paulish Shelia. I'm glad it shows. Yes I did in fact vote for Ron Paul every time he has ever run for president. I also voted for Kinky Friedman when he ran against Perry.
Dr. Paul was correct in calling our current system a softer form of fascism. The founding fathers refused to sign the Constitution without a Bill of Rights. We have in fact lost those rights this week with the rejection of the Amash bill. So eat a turnip serfs!

In mid evil England the serfs were protein deprived and usually about a foot shorter than royalty. The knight would ride by on his horse and see that starving serf and say " eat a turnip serf". They didn't care about someone suffering.
Why would the unions have any representation in congress? None of us do. Maybe they should all eat a turnip like the rest of the serfs.

Dave, your analogy to Hayek's novel is SO Ron Paul-ish. Why not cut to the chase and just say; from our national economy to the governments media, from our already decided national elections to our AIPAC controlled congress, from a government spying on it's own citizens to the Jewish Republicans who wouldn't allow Ron Paul to debate the field last election, it's government against the goyum, plain and simple.

If it is good enough for the goose, it's good enough for the gander.

Yea if we must be stuck with this albatross, then let us ALL be stuck with it.

The Broccoli doesn't look so good when it's on your own plate.
