    Naturally. How do libbies defend this guy? The rest of us need to buy it but not my staff? Leadership by example? Yep, the worst kind. Reid should be hung up by his thumbs from the Capital Rotunda and beaten in public by those negatively affected by the law he championed.

    "One of the biggest public supporters of the Affordable Care Act has reportedly decided that some of his staff should be exempted from the new law.

    CNN reports that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is the only top congressional leader to exempt some of his staff from having to buy insurance through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

    That’s right, even House Majority Leader John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, who have voted against the healthcare law dozens of times, have told their staff to sign up for insurance plans through the federal exchange.

    The news will likely provide another talking point to critics of the healthcare law, commonly known as Obamacare. After all, members of Congress and their staff are not only required to buy insurance through the exchanges, they must buy plans in the “gold” tier, the second most-expensive option available.

    Yahoo News has reached out to the offices of all 100 U.S. senators to see if any other members have exempted committee staff from the federal exchange."

    Reid now beginning to take flak from media. Where have they been on this guy. The midget has terrorized the middle class for years while carrying Obama's water.

    Of course he is, did anyone think he would do for himself what the rest of the country is subjected to?
    This is the ruling class. You know, like Nancy saying a pay cut would mess with her dignity.

    And very controversial and sleazy how he pulled it out. Polling orgs had him losing but Hospitality Industry Union workers voted early and often and somehow found enough votes for the Midget to continue his terrorist tactics on the middle class.

    1. Pass a law that imposes the requirement for all Americans to buy health insurance.

    2. Raise premiums by significant amounts.

    3. Raise deductibles by significant amounts.

    4. Watch doctors retire.

    5. Exempt yourself from obeying the law.
