Lindsey Graham: Credit Where Credit Is Due
This website seldom has anything good to say about U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) – which we attribute to the fact Graham has seldom done anything good for us to speak of.
Still, blind acorns do find hogs every so often … or is it the other way around? We forget …
Anyway Graham – a warmongering fiscal liberal of the very worst sort – finally did something worthy of praise this week. Specifically, he declined to take advantage of an Obamacare exemption offered exclusively to members of Congress and their employees.
“I don’t think Members of Congress should get a special deal,” Graham said. “Obamacare is being pushed on the American people and we should live under it just like everyone else.”
And so instead of participating in the DC Health Link exchange and having 75 percent of his health care premium subsidized by taxpayers, Graham has chosen to enroll in Obamacare and take it up the rear with the rest of us.
Wait … does that explain something about his decision? Hmmm …
“As a 58-year old male living in Oconee County my insurance costs are going up about $400 a month, more than 200 percent, under Obamacare,” said Graham. “In addition, my health care coverage will be a fraction of what it used to be. Sadly, I’m not the only one who will feel the negative effects of Obamacare. It’s happening all over South Carolina.”
Exactly. Which is why Graham should have stood beside real Republicans who were fighting to defund this abomination instead of rolling over for Barack Obama.
Still, Graham deserves a modest amount of credit for acknowledging the rank hypocrisy of the Obamacare exemptions for members of Congress … and refusing to participate in the scam.
