Reid and his personal staff will buy insurance through the exchange
But it's also true that the law lets lawmakers decide if their committee and leadership staffers hold on to their federal employee insurance plans, an option Reid has exercised.
Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson emphasized, "We are just following the law."
So you are complaining that they are following the law? I'll bet that if the Teatards had said "hey take away that part of the law and we will agree to cut defense spending 5 percent" instead of "stop Obamacare or we'll shut down the government" they would have gotten it. Easily. You see, thats how politics works. Anyways, I've already posted here how the main proponent of that part of the law was none other than...John Boehner.
The article doesn't even explain why all this is happening which is odd. Why do you think that Reid would do this? All the article says is that Reid is following the law. Could there possibly be a reason this makes sense for him to do that isn't related to your fascination with the idea that he wants to turn everyone else into government loving socialists - except for some bizarre reason some people that work for him?
Maybe you are just throwing this oddball stuff out there so no one notices that:
Always good to hear there are people willing to help out like that. I was on a jury involving a drunk hit and run where a Good Samaritan saw the hit and followed the drunk guy back to his apartment complex, made it an easy case to judge.
I noticed that too, it was fantastic. We had a kid dressed up in a blue and black bodysuit with the head covering on it next to us, he was a blast and yelled as loud as I did - when it was time! Had lots of people up on third down too.
Best of all the seats behind us that always get sold off were occupied by Panthers fans! And the sole seat next to us that ALWAYS goes to an opposing team fan had a Bucs fan stationed in VA Beach in it, he was quiet the whole game. My wife felt a little sorry for him.
I did not.
Here a pic of that great kid, and Newton throwing the TD pass to LaFell.
One of the few benefits to sucking the past few years is that the front office has been a lot more into "value add" stuff like better payment plans and other perks to make sure people see that they are trying everything they can to make it easier to be a PSL owner.
The reason he probably wanted to wait until he got inside the stadium is that he wanted to get into the game - once he starts taking pictures, people seem to line up for them.
Anyways I've known Greg for a long time and overall he is a good guy and likes to make people happy. Never noticed any smells, but given he's a big guy in a lot of costume, I'm sure he sweats an awful lot in it.
We support the team win or lose. partially because we have to - but in reality, when we got PSLs. we knew that a big chunk of our time and money would be involved in watching pro football. This is why game day is a giant deal that is planned out in advance. It's why my tailgate hires bands for big games. It's why I spend Saturday night cooking and prepping.
The people that own the PSLs around me sell them for the most part, and basically come out even win or lose, since they are way lower level, and opposing team fans tend to scoop them up. In bad seasons, they actually get great money for them because what opposing team fan wouldn't want a close up seat to see their team whoop up on us?
I hate them with a passion. But this season watching their disappointed faces has been fun.
