Political Arsonist?

With Senate Republicans unable to pass a health-care bill, President Trump might be able to shake up the debate and motivate swift congressional action by ordering the end of the Obamacare exemption for lawmakers and their staff members.

As Obamacare was debated in 2009 and 2010, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, proposed an amendment that would require all members of Congress and their staff members to be subject to the new law. Eventually, that amendment got watered down to allow exemptions for committee staff members.

Columnist John Fund told WND and Radio America that lawmakers and office staffers soon realized they didn’t like how the new law impacted them.

“They quickly discovered as the exchanges were being set up that the exchanges were going to prohibit the payment of subsidies to anyone with an exchange policy who was getting that policy from their employer. In other words, you could have your own policy, but you couldn’t have your employer pay for it,” Fund said.

Before long, lawmakers and their employees were looking for special favors from the president.

The very first thing the new FBI Director should do is send a written request (siting the ample existing legal justification) to the Acting Assistant AG requesting he fire Mueller forthwith.   The Dems will go ballistic.  So what.  F’em.

Mueller is legally unqualified, period.  His appointment is a travesty of justice in itself.  How in hell was he ever even considered for this position let alone actually appointed?   Astonishing.
