Pier. Rope. Whatever.

Dozens of lawmakers and aides are so afraid that their health insurance premiums will skyrocket next year thanks to Obamacare that they are thinking about retiring early or just quitting...
Rep. John Larson, a Connecticut Democrat in leadership when the law passed, said he thinks the problem will be resolved.
“If not, I think we should begin an immediate amicus brief to say, ‘Listen this is simply not fair to these employees,’” Larson told POLITICO. “They are federal employees.”
Because... Why?  Are federal employees somehow special?  Better than your average, everyday run-of-the-mill employee? You know - those, grubby fellows who simply are not as Smaht (TM) as federal employees?

Those non-federal employees who Rep. John Larson apparently thinks deserve to get hammered by these premium increases?  Because if it's not fair for federal employees to have to put up with these increases, by inference, it must be fair for non-federal employees to have to pay them, right?

Rep. John Larson?  You are a despicable, two-faced despot.  I thank God that you are not my representative, and I can only pray that the people of your district will take a good, long hard look at you and understand exactly what you think of them.

And then I hope they invite you to take a long walk off of a short pier.
