(Opposing Views)   Rand Paul thinks congress should get veteran's benefits, food stamps and the special Medal of Honor stipend. OK, he doesn't really think that, but he's brilliantly crafted a constitutional amendment that would make it happen   (opposingviews.com) divider line 18

How does the derpy author see "Congress shall make no law applicable to a citizen of the United States that is not equally applicable to Congress" and read that as "and benefit equally on a case-by-case basis"?

"Therefore, when Congress passes a special law that gives, for example, a one-time death benefit to the widow of a deceased congressmember - as it recently did for the wife of late New Jersey Senator Frank Lautenberg - under Paul's amendment, every single member of Congress would receive the same amount of money."

Yes, you lunatic: when they die. It means that they can benefit from the same law, not that they get paid when you do.

Otherwise, you nitwit, if I go to jail for 3 days all of Congress would have to go to jail for 3 days as well. Given incarceration rates in this country, that would pretty much keep every member of Congress in jail for life.

. . .

Wait, I think I am on to something....

Cagey B: MrBallou: That's it. I give up. The system is totally broken when being a circus clown/attention whore instead of a legislator is the way to get reelected.

You're just now noticing? Rand Paul replaced a guy who was elected Senator just because he was a good pitcher.


I didn't know Kentucky even swung that way.

ShardingGreat: what_now: Ever since the health care law passed in 2010, conservatives have railed against what they said was an "exemption" for members of congress, who received their health insurance through a federal plan. Paul's amendment would end that so-called "exemption."

Just out of curiosity, is anyone that stupid? Does anyone actually think that people who already have insurance will be forced to choose a new provider? Is Rand Paul that stupid, or does he think we are?

Oh, but they CAN force you to choose a new provider. Allow me to explain, my dear Watson. First, I work in the financial side of the healthcare industry. An actual primary care physician's practice, so I have the credentials to answer this question. There are insurance companies being forced to drop all types of coverage plans in order to comply with Obamacare. Some new plans are only hand picking a small (comparitively) group of participating physicians to participate with the "affordable" plan. Your health care is going to cost you more and provide less coverage. Your current physician may not be included to participate with the plans your current coverage offers or because the allowed amount (the amount the physician is actually paid) is reduced to the point of ridiculous and the doctor chooses to no long participate with your plan because he'd practically be working for free. What happens then? You are forced to choose a new physician in order to accomodate your health insurance plan or pay for your own insurance out of pocket in order to keep seeing your choice of a physician. This will cost you an astronomical amount of money.

Go ahead...tell me how wonderful Obamacare is going to be and I'll be happy to shoot all manner of holes in your pet theories. You don't know shiat about what a farce Obamacare is or how much it's going to end up costing you. Go ahead, sign up and hand the governement the rest of the information that the NSA hasn't already gathered about you. Idiot.
