    “Actually, we were just fine before,” Bachmann said.
    ... try to remember back three and a half years ago when you and your fellow Republicans thought it was a really cute idea to make members of Congress shop on the exchanges.
    Before this tricky maneuver, members of Congress were eligible for the same health insurance as Federal employees.

    Nose, meet knife. Too bad for you, face.

      Members of Congress not only have the federal employee health benefits, but they have their own medical team available, at no charge, right there at the worksite.

      Or perhaps at minimal charge: they might have to contribute something toward that, but nothing compared to life for regular working people.

        Members of Congress not only have the federal employee health benefits....
        Forcing them into the exchanges was the point of the GOP maneuver. To what end, I"m not sure.
