Due to the hurried nature of its drafting and passage, Obamacare contains a number of provisions which – had Congress read the bill more carefully – might have been rejected. For example, one section mandates that Members of Congress and their staff should lose their current government-sponsored premium support for health insurance. The Office of Personnel Management has issued a final rule allowing Members of Congress and their staff to continue to have their taxpayer-funded health insurance. Yet, this new ruling is likely unlawful. The scheme is therefore threatened by potential lawsuits by Members of Congress and their staff.
