Such A Disaster I Just Enrolled Myself And My Entire Family In It!
Back when negotiations over the Affordable Care Act were ongoing, Republicans were busying themselves trying to throw up any roadblocks that they could. One of those roadblocks proved successful, and in so doing, it actually backfired on the less than health insurance literate 'mastermind' behind the idea, Chuck Grassley. Grassley wrongfully believed his own party's anti-health care propaganda and assumed that the ACA was such a disaster that he would set a trap for Democrats pushing it, so he devised a poison pill that would force congressional staffers into the health insurance exchanges along with members of Congress. Grassley assumed that Democrats would never go for it because the ACA was so awful.
