Tyler, Texas (KETK) — 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?
