I Couldn't Make This Up

I Couldn't Make This Up

You wouldn't believe it. And it is in the April 12, 2010 New York Times!
It is often said that the new health care law will affect almost every American in some way. And, perhaps fittingly if unintentionally, no one may be more affected than members of Congress themselves.

In a new report, the Congressional Research Service says the law may have significant unintended consequences for the “personal health insurance coverage” of senators, representatives and their staff members. 

For example, it says, the law may “remove members of Congress and Congressional staff” from their current coverage, in the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, before any alternatives are available.

It appears that Congress not only did not understand what they were doing to the rest of us--they did not understand what they doing to their own health insurance.  Hoist by their own petard!
