How about a separate vote for Congress to repeal their own GREAT health insurance?

It's more than amazing and humorous that the GOP is running the candidate, Mitt Romney, whose Romneycare is the MODEL fo the Affordable Health Care Act (aka in an attempt to be derogatory as Obamacare or, by some Republicans as Obamneycare). The main difference between Romneycare and AHC is that Romneycare supports abortions being paid for, where AHC does not.

Even so, from The Hill

Repealing President Obama’s healthcare law would let members of Congress keep their government-subsidized insurance coverage after they retire — a benefit they lost under the health law.

The Affordable Care Act — specifically, a Republican amendment to the Affordable Care Act — kicked members of Congress and their aides out of the healthcare program for federal employees.

Instead, lawmakers and staff have to get coverage through the insurance exchanges created by the healthcare law. Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), who championed that provision, said it ensures that lawmakers live under the same rules as their constituents.

What? I WANT Congress to have the same rules as us. We aren't sending lawmakers to Congress to get sweeter deals.

But, when Congress, primarly the GOP, voted to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act, they wanted that sweet deal BACK.

The FEHBP allows government employees to keep their policies after they retire. People who get insurance through a private employer, however, often lose their coverage when they lose their job or change jobs. And people who aren't insured through their employer could, if the ACA is repealed, be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition if they experience a gap in coverage.

VOTE OUT ANYONE WHO VOTED AGAINST THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE ACT. That would include Mitt Romney, who came UP with it and thought it was a model for the United States.
