Democrats Reduced To Arguing The Absurd
First it was Big Bird. Then it was "binders." Now they're distorting an obscure provision of Obamacare that requires members of Congress to live under the same law that they force upon the rest of us.
The provision, written into the law at the behest of a Republican senator, says members of Congress must get their health benefits through new insurance exchanges being established in every state.Republicans have voted repeatedly to repeal the whole law. Now, in a barrage of television ads, Democrats are roasting those Republicans, saying they voted to give themselves “taxpayer-funded health care for life.”The accuracy of the commercials, judged even by the loose standards that often apply to political advertising, is open to question.
