John Boehner’s Socialism: Taxpayers Pay 75% of His Premiums and His Wife is On Medicare

http://www.politicususa.com/2013/11/25/tax-payers-fund-75-john-boehners-premiums-wife-medicare.html



“Next year Mrs. Boehner will be on Medicare.” This news was brought to you by Michael Hiltzik at the LA Times, in the midst of his fact-checking of John Boehner’s claims to be paying tons more money post-ObamaCare (shockingly a lie).

Also, “Boehner’s premiums are partially covered by his employer, the federal government, which pays up to 75% of employee premiums, up to a cap of $426.14 a month (for 2014).” This is confirmed by Factcheck.Org, which finds that the government pays on average 72% and up to 75%.

Not only do we, the taxpayers, fund 75% of Boehner’s premiums, but his wife is going on Medicare.

Republicans call public servants like teachers “thugs” for any perks they get, but have no problem with getting 75% of their own premiums paid for.

That man sure knows how to play the system. Heck, he's an insider.
Bet he's richer now than when he was a peon before a congress con.

7. He's complaining because he sees himself and his family as royalty, exempt from paying for anything.

IOW, socialism (costs shared by everyone) for the rich and privatization (apartheid, we will tell you what you get, or don't get) in action.
