Another Huge Failure For Obama: Poll Shows Less Than 3 Percent Of Federal Workers Want To Join Obamacare

When 97% of the government workers are opposed to a government program, it speaks volumes.


Less than 3 percent of U.S. federal workers want to give up their current health plans and join Obamacare, according to a new poll.

92.3 percent of federal workers think that they should continue with their current health insurance program, the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP), while just 2.8 percent think they should be required to join Obamacare exchanges and 4.9 percent are not sure, according to an August survey conducted by, a website for federal employees.

….Though congressmen and congressional staffers have to enroll in Obamacare exchanges, most federal employees insured under FEHBP will not be forced to switch to Obamacare exchanges when the law is fully implemented in 2014. But a recent proposed bill by Michigan Republican Rep. Dave Camp to force federal workers out of FEHBP and into Obamacare generated a lot of concern among federal workers.

Congressmen and congressional staffers may have to enroll in Obamacare exchanges, but the taxpayers are actually picking up 75% of the bills; so they’re getting a break that won’t be available to everyone else. Federal workers, even the ones implementing Obamacare, are getting a break as well. But, the American people? They aren’t getting a break. They’re going to be paying much more for inferior service and doctor shortages; they will have the IRS involved in their health care. That begs the question: Are we a free people with a government that serves us or a nation of serfs that serves the government?
