It is criminal that the U.S. has decided to allow those in power to take a pass at Obamacare.
I am wondering when other things will be passed like Directive 10-289 from our dear leader "Wesley Mouch"..
In the name of the general welfare, to protect the people's security, to achieve full equality and total stability, it is decreed for the duration of the national emergency that:
Point One. All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of a term in jail. The penalty shall be determined by the Unification Board, such Board to be appointed by the Bureau of Economic Planning and National Resources. All persons reaching the age of twenty-one shall report to the Unification Board, which shall assign them to where, in its opinion, their services will best serve the interests of the nation.

Point Two. All industrial, commercial, manufacturing and business establishments of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth remain in operation, and the owners of such establishments shall not quit nor leave nor retire, nor close, sell or transfer their business, under penalty of the nationalization of their establishment and of any and all of their property.

Point Three. All patents and copyrights, pertaining to any devices, inventions, formulas, processes and works of any nature whatsoever, shall be turned over to the nation as a patriotic emergency gift by means of Gift Certificates to be signed voluntarily by the owners of all such patents and copyrights. The Unification Board shall then license the use of such patents and copyrights to all applicants, equally and without discrimination, for the purpose of eliminating monopolistic practices, discarding obsolete products and making the best available to the whole nation. No trademarks, brand names or copyrighted titles shall be used. Every formerly patented product shall be known by a new name and sold by all manufacturers under the same name, such name to be selected by the Unification Board. All private trademarks and brand names are hereby abolished.

Point Four. No new devices, inventions, products, or goods of any nature whatsoever, not now on the market, shall be produced, invented, manufactured or sold after the date of this directive. The Office of Patents and Copyrights is hereby suspended.

Point Five. Every establishment, concern, corporation or person engaged in production of any nature whatsoever shall henceforth produce the same amount of goods per year as it, they or he produced during the Basic Year, no more and no less. The year to be known as the Basic or Yardstick Year is to be the year ending on the date of this directive. Over or under production shall be fined, such fines to be determined by the Unification Board.

Point Six. Every person of any age, sex, class or income, shall henceforth spend the same amount of money on the purchase of goods per year as he or she spent during the Basic Year, no more and no less. Over or under purchasing shall be fined, such fines to be determined by the Unification Board.

Point Seven. All wages, prices, salaries, dividends, profits, interest rates and forms of income of any nature whatsoever, shall be frozen at their present figures, as of the date of this directive.

Point Eight. All cases arising from and rules not specifically provided for in this directive, shall be settled and determined by the Unification Board, whose decisions will be final.[1]

    I agree that is criminal that they exempt themselves.

    It creates a class-based society, much like England after the Norman Conquest. The office of "Coroner" - literaly "crown" - was created when dead Normans started appearing on the roads. The coroner investigated to determine if indeed it was the body of Norman. If so, an inquest and trial and punishment (perhaps of the whole village) would follow. But if the dead man was a Saxon, it was not a big deal and the crown did nothing.

    That said, you cannot lay this on Pres. Obama's doorstep. Congress passed it, of course. More to the point, the government has ALWAYS been exempt from SOCIAL SECURITY. That was the precedent for this. Blame Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush. They never did anything to make the government subject to its own laws. Moreover, for all the conservative nonsense to expose communists, or end the income tax, or pull out of the UN, or force a constitutional convention, or secede their state from the union, no one to my knowledge ever mounted even an information campaign to make the government subject to social security.

    And now we have this.

      "That said, you cannot lay this on Pres. Obama's doorstep. Congress passed it, of course."

      This is backwards: Congress amended the Affordable Care Act to include the congressional politicians, and their staff, in the exchange program. No special treatment allowed, and this was passed, and signed by Obama.

      The recent bellyaching by the congressional staff members reached the West wing, and Obama personally changed the amendment to one that funded the healthcare coverage costs (up to 75%) for the Congress, and their staff.

      Obama's DNA is all over this cronyism....

    As to your question on when Directive 10-289 will be implemented, I predict rather soon. Employers will have to change their staff to part time before January 1st. The government won't get the $$ it needs to fund this 'tax' with part time workers, and since most of the big corps are getting a pass, and most government employees too, it will have to become illegal to lay off, fire, reduce hours, quit job etc., not to mention they have to keep the economy growing at 2% which requires people to buy. What's the answer? Directive 10-289.
