IRS Director Wants to Keep His Health Insurance

Ah, jeeze, I hate to hear that federal employees won't be happy with Obamacare. Acting IRS Director Danny Werfel explains that Obamacare was for normal taxpayers but wasn't right for federal employees. Maybe Senators Lee and Cruz can help.

"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. So I think for a federal employee, I think more likely, and I would -- can speak for myself, I would prefer to stay with the current policy that I'm pleased with rather than go through a change if I don't need to go through that change."
