Sauce for the goose, bitches

Apparently, the ganders don't like it:
Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting.
The fear: Government-subsidized premiums will disappear at the end of the year under a provision in the health care law that nudges aides and lawmakers onto the government health care exchanges, which could make their benefits exorbitantly expensive.
Sorry about the link to The Politico, but that's where it was. In any event, the Congress critters don't like the idea of losing their taxpayer-funded health insurance. Can't imagine why. I'd like to get some, except I happen to be a taxpayer and am opposed to pretty much taxpayer-funded anything except roads, defense and border security. Seems to have worked until about 1916.
