The new Republican rallying cry.

And why are they so obsessed with federal government employees "being on Obamacare?" They are, unsurprisingly, missing the point of the ACA-based exchanges which is, of course, to help people who don't get insurance through their jobs or whom have previously been shut out of the insurance market either because of price, pre-existing conditions, etc. If Sebelius, et. al are happy with their employer-based provider insurance, why should they ditch it for the exchange? And in Sebelius' case, she couldn't even if she wanted to because she is Medicare-eligible.
