WHAT DO THEY HAVE LEFT BUT PARTISANSHIP?:

GOP's Dave Camp: Why Not Put All Federal Employees Onto Obamacare's Exchanges? (Avik Roy, 4/27/13, Forbes)

"If the ObamaCare exchanges are good enough for the hardworking Americans and small businesses the law claims to help, then they should be good enough for the president, vice president, Congress, and federal employees," said Camp's spokeswoman in a statement.

The political principle is straightforward, but it would come at a price. Putting all federal employees on the exchanges would obliterate the most market-oriented insurance program run by the government, the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program, or FEHBP. Indeed, the FEHBP has long been considered a model for market-based reform of the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

Nothing says moonbat quite like trying to kill your own policy preferences in order to score partisan points.
