Obama’s IRS Chief Admits to Congress He Wants to Keep His Healthcare, Doesn’t Want to be Forced into Obamacare (+video)

At congressional hearing today, the following exchange took place between Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Tx) and the IRS chief, Daniel Werfel:

Congressman Johnson: “Mr. Werfel, last week your employees who are a member of the National Treasury Employee’s Union sent a form letter for union members to send in to ask they be exempt from the exchanges. Why are your employees trying to exempt themselves from the very law that you’re tasked to enforce?”

Commissioner Werfel: “I don’t want to speak for the NTEU, but I’ll offer a perspective as a federal employee myself and a federal employee at the IRS. And that is, we have right now as employees of the government, of the IRS, affordable health care coverage. I think the ACA was designed to provide an option or an alternative for individuals that do not. And all else being equal, I think if you’re an individual who is satisfied with your health care coverage, you’re probably in a better position to stick with that coverage than go through the change of moving into a different environment and going through that process.”
