Ben Sasse on the Hypocrisy of Washington Insiders

"The American people firmly opposed ObamaCare before it was passed. It was rammed through anyway via a dishonest legislative gimmick. And now that it's on the verge of being implemented, the very people who forced ObamaCare on the rest of us demand to be exempted from the most punishing aspects of it when it applies to them. This is crazy."

"The millionaires in the Senate should not be getting a taxpayer-funded subsidy to pay for their health care. They don't need or deserve an extra premium support plan that's just for insiders. It is time for every Republican in Washington, starting with minority leader Mitch McConnell, to show some actual leadership on this issue by voluntarily giving up their health care subsidy. If D.C. politicians are going to force this country to accept President Obama's experiment with socialism, they have to live under it with the rest of us."

Dr. Ben Sasse deserves very careful attention for Nebraskans who are looking for a bright, engaging, and authentic conservative to serve our interests in the U.S. Senate. His impressive educational experience includes Harvard, Yale, Oxford, and St. John's University while his work experience includes Boston Consulting Group (a global management consulting firm), the chief of staff of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Legal Policy in George W. Bush's tenure and, since 2009, the President of Midland University in Fremont.

Check him out in this refreshingly forthright clip.
