IRS Union, No Obamacare for us

Want to know how good Obamacare is?
Even the IRS employees union wants no part of it.

IRS employee union: We don’t want Obamacare
IRS employees have a prominent role in Obamacare, but their union wants no part of the law.
National Treasury Employees Union officials are urging members to write their congressional representatives in opposition to receiving coverage through President Obama’s health care law.
The union leaders are providing members with a form letter to send to the congressmen that says “I am very concerned about legislation that has been introduced by Congressman Dave Camp to push federal employees out of the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program and into the insurance exchanges established under the Affordable Care Act.”
The NTEU represents 150,000 federal employees overall, including most of the nearly 100,000 IRS workers.
Like most other federal workers, IRS employees currently get their health insurance through the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program, which also covers members of Congress.
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp offered the bill in response to reports of congressional negotiations that would exempt lawmakers and their staff from Obamacare.~snip~
These are the people that are going to have Carte Blanche to all our health and financial records yet as always think that what is good for the lowly citizens of this country isn't good enough for them.
They deign to decide if our politics are acceptable and now want to place themselves above us lowly serfs who don't have the option of declining Obamacare.

What could go wrong?

Why would they want it for themselves? They are already aware that their privacy will be lost their own co-workers. Can you imagine the the weaponization of information on a a disliked co-worker?
