Greta: What Congress just did ‘will make you want to throw up’

greta van susterenWhen the actions of the federal government succeed in riling up the normally stoic Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, you can be sure that something sinister is afoot.

And she is so ticked by the current reign of lawlessness she could just vomit!

As elected officials slipped out of town for a 5-week recess, we learned a deal was struck to exempt Congress from new higher premiums associated with ObamaCare. A move designed to avert the provision in the law which said members of Congress and their aides must be covered by plans “created” by the law or “offered through an exchange.”

The Office of Personnel Management, under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill, determined that the health care premiums of members of Congress and their aides can be subsidized by taxpayers, according to Politico.

As noted by Mediaite, Van Susteran responded in a blog post titled with all capital letters “THIS WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO THROW UP,” in which she railed against the “appalling” exemption, repeatedly expressing her “disgust” with elected officials.

“It is indecent….just WRONG,” she wrote. “So let me get this straight….they push OBAMACARE on EVERY OTHER AMERICAN except themselves. Really? Unbelievable, isn’t it?”

Van Susteran zeroed in on how the exemption was rushed before the August recess, but Congress failed to address the expiring resolution that prevents government shutdown in 60 days, as reported by Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell.

“So…let me get this straight….what matters to YOU and is their job to handle can wait until their 5 week vacation is over, Van Susteran stated. “What matters to them, gets done NOW, before their 5 week vacation.”

“I really don’t know how Members of Congress can sleep at night when they pull these stunts on the rest of America,” she concluded. “I don’t know who voted how, but I want to know who voted FOR this. At the very minimum, this selfish vote should have been put at the back of the line.”

    People should be constantly reminded of those who voted for this. As usual it was done in a sneaky manner. They should all be voted out of office, Dems and RINOs. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander…

    We need to find out who voted for the exemption. They eat steak and we are given a dumpster sandwich.

    • Richard Ashburn

      Not every American. Remember, the law exempts Muslims.

      • Chris Bergstrom

        Really?

        • Chris Bergstrom

          If that’s true, I’ll just “say” I’m muslim and not pay for it then.

          • jtak101

            I would rather just pay than have those words pass my lips!!

        • Ayman Is-stillhere

          Yes. Under our law insurance is considered gambling.

          • NC Conservative

            Your law does not apply if you live in AMERICA!

          • Kat Walden

            thank you for giving an honest answer..

          • Jamison Heistand

            Christianity is also against gambling!

          • Greg

            The only law here is the Constitution Ayman. If you don’t like it, piss off back to whatever sand dune you burrowed out of.

      • copperpeony

        You’re right. That ruling in itself is treasonous.

      • morstar150

        The claim of Muslims being exempt from Obamacare is false. The “religious exemption” provision has certain requirements, one of which is whether those in that religion have refused to participate in the social security system. One of the only groups that may qualify for the exemption are the Amish. As part of their beliefs they have a doctrine of self-reliance something that is sadly being stripped from our American society.

        You cannot make arguments that are not real. There is so much wrong with this program, don’t start making things up to show how bad the law is.

        • Ken Swan

          really??? you obviously DON’T pay attention to what is going on around you, or you would know that MUSLIMS were exempted right from the beginning thanks to POTUS
          “A doctrine of self-reliance” MY ASS, they want to rule the world but want our money and guns to do it…

          • Charles E. Elrod

            Thanks Ken. Sure seems that those that don’t know this should get educated such as morstar150.

        • Ayman Is-stillhere

          As I stated above, buying insurance is considered a form of gambling. No Muslim shall pay any penalty for refusing to purchase health care.

          • Elbyiii

            Well Ayman hon, you just pick & choose those laws you want to honor and don’t worry about those you don’t like…..You are in for a rude awakening!!!!!!

          • Terry Wood

            Mr. Ayman, May I suggest you and your religion are better suited in the Middle East and not in My America!!! Kindly take yourself and your Muslim friends back from whence you came.

          • Wanda Gavin

            yes, I agree with Terry Wood…take your sorry asses back..ALL OF YOU..to where the hell you belong..and there you can practice all your dumb ass rules, laws, etc.now go take your Mommy, and Allah to the local Mosque and have a nice bbq sandwich…

    • Karen Ramsey

      how can we find this information out?

      • copperpeony

        It should be somewhere in the Congressional Votes website. I’m going to look.

  • Susie Forster-Hensoldt

    You go girl Greta! Our government totally sucks! You look great in your new hairstyle too….

  • Ron Gilmer

    NO, the labor unions revolted because the workers would have to pay so Obama pardoned those too! You see they give a lot of money for his episodes!

    • Elbyiii

      I don’t think they are off the hook yet Ron!

      • dragonsfly

        No, they are not off the hook yet. The union leaders are having a fit over it, too. Obama made them big promises to get them to vote yes and now things have changed and the cost for workers is going to be insane. Obama keeps jerking them around without giving any answers…just like he does to everyone, about everything.

    Can this be Lawful ?

    • jsteele98

      No, but when has that ever stopped these bastards in Washington?

      • mgentry77

        Actually yes its legal. There is a proposal to amend the Constitution to include Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply
        equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make
        no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States. However this is just a proposal and nothing in the Constitution prohibits otherwise.

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Did Greta or anyone else expect any different from our overlords?

  • Betty Jay

    We need to find out who voted FOR this and vote them out!. Congress seems to be very selfish, thinking only of themselves.

    • wildjew

      My party (GOP) controls the House.

    • jsteele98

      No one voted for it. The Whitehouse got complaints from the CongressCritters and their staff and has instructed the Office of Personnel Management (part of the Executive Branch) to issue a ruling that the “government” will subsidize the ObamaCare costs for Congress and their staffs.

      By the way, notice that the “government” is going to do this. “Government” is only you and me when it comes time to PAY for something. Any other time its “sit down, shut up and do as you are told.”

      • Charles E. Elrod

        Kudos jsteele98. Amazing isn’t it that we pay to have ourselves disciplined by city, county, state and federal government.

    Obey Or Else!
