Pronouncing it, “Simply unacceptable,” senior aides on the Hill, many of them working for Democrats that forced ObamaCare on America, are now being hit by sticker shock as a result of the very legislation that helped pass.
It’s so bad, some are claiming it will force them to leave their jobs on the Hill.
“In a shock to the system, the older staff in my office (folks over 59) have now found out their personal health insurance costs (even with the government contribution) have gone up 3-4 times what they were paying before,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) (D-Wis.), wrote to fellow Democratic chiefs of staff in an email message obtained by POLITICO. “Simply unacceptable.”
As one might expect, they’re already scrambling to get out from under legislation with which they have now burdened the rest of the country.
He wrote in his email that he had asked Democratic staff on the House Administration Committee whether she could redesignate some of the aides on Moore’s payroll as nonofficial office staff so that they could avoid the exchange and keep their FEHB plans.
