Fool House

Too perfect:

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the "personal health insurance coverage" of senators, representatives and their staff members.

For example, it says, the law may "remove members of Congress and Congressional staff" from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

The confusion raises the inevitable question: If they did not know exactly what they were doing to themselves, did lawmakers who wrote and passed the bill fully grasp the details of how it would influence the lives of other Americans?

See what they did there, right at the end? That is what you call a rhetorical question.

One has to wonder what other time bombs are waiting to be discovered. No wonder 58% of Americans want Obamacare repealed.
