Loophole Lets Dozens of Minnesota Congressional Staff Opt Out of Key Health Care Reform Requirement - Big Government Now isn't that interesting that they have a loophole that their staff doesn't have to go on Obamacare. If Obamacare is sooooooooooooooooooo wonderful, why give an opt out for your "elite" staff. Wouldn't that staff be clammoring to be on Obamacare if it's so great? The devil is in the details. When liberals tell YOU that something they are passing is just going to be utopia but they put in a loophole where they can opt out, you know they are LYING to you. How do you know a Democrat/liberal is lying? Their lips are moving.
