Bob Comer: Opportunity for Republicans in Congress

It’s my opinion that the Republicans have an opportunity to turn things around for themselves.

Adoption of Louisiana Senator David Vitter’s amendment that would annul the exemption from Obamacare for all congressmen and their staffs would prove which party has the backbone and knows what is fair.

The exchange for these members of the government includes subsidies not found in other exchanges. The Republicans should boldly announce that this special treatment is unfair to the rest of us stuck with Obamacare.

With one voice they should shout, “Since you citizens are required to abide with this albatross of a bill, we Republicans will, too.”

James Madison wrote in Federalist No. 57: “They can make no law which will not have its full operation on themselves and their friends, as well as on the great mass of the society.”

Let’s write Buck McKeon and tell him he and his staff should stand with us. Not with the other politicians featherbedding their nests.
