David Corbin and Mathew Parks:
Congressional Democrats–supposed to be the friends of the people–decided to bill them for their special break. The president–supposed to be fighting cynicism with “hope and change”–cynically cut one more deal to quiet Obamacare critics, in the spirit of earlier deals that secured the support of the American Medical Association and the AARP.
All of this set up a perfect political opportunity for the party of small government; just follow through on the thinnest possible understanding of Republican principles and score big points against do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do big-government hypocrites. Even this turned out to be too hard for the GOP leadership, which can congratulate itself for at least saving a few special people (themselves!) from the extra burdens of Obamacare.
There is an answer to this and Mark Levin has laid it out for us.
