Repeal Obamacare for all Americans' benefit

August 21, 2013 12:00 am

Congressional Democrats (including Reps. Pete Visclosky and Joe Donnelly) passed Obamacare without knowing its contents.

After discovering the ill effects of this law on themselves and their staff, these self-serving Democrats begged for congressional waivers. This president's administration illegally granted it for them.

These hypocrites won't repeal this disastrous law so everyone else can also avoid high insurance premiums, keep their own doctors and insurance and keep their full-time jobs.

Unions (and others) who previously supported Obamacare are also demanding waivers.

Laws are to be applied equally. President Barack Obama is not a king who can choose who must obey the law and who can disregard it.

Congressional duties include fully abiding by the law it passed and curtailing this law-breaking president. Members of Congress don't like Obamacare for themselves? Most Americans don't want it either. Repeal it for everyone.
