They passed Obamacare, and now, they want exemptions

Tyler, Tx — Hey, welcome to the party. We had to pass it so we'd know what's in it.
All the stuff hidden in the healthcare bill is starting to go into effect and many Democrats are not railing against it.
Almost 20 Democratic senators who had no problem voting for this horrible law are now asking for an exemption.
This from Town Hall---
What a pity. If only someone had demonstrated the foresight to warn against the destructive consequences of Obamacare's medical device tax, they might have helped turn public sentiment sharply against the law prior to passage. Oh, that's right, conservatives did -- and the American people rose up in opposition. Now, the very actors who are most responsible for ignoring public demands and jamming through Obamacare are trying to "delay" or repeal a major element of their law, warning that it could stifle medical innovation and kill jobs. Welcome to the party, guys. You're about two years too late:
U.S. Sen. Bob Casey and 16 other Senate Democrats want the medical device tax - included in the 2010 healthcare reform law that they supported - postponed. The 2.3 percent excise tax that device makers must pay on their gross sales goes into effect on Jan. 1. It's one of the new revenues used to offset the cost of the healthcare law.
Now these idiots are realizing what they did and they're worried it will cost billions of dollars and lose jobs in their district.
Wonder what other laws they voted for and they have no idea what it was.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
