UPDATE 7/22/2015: Senator Ted Cruz is trying to get a vote on an amendment to the highway bill that would END Congress's scheme to sidestep Obamacare. We've updated our model letter to demand leadership allow a vote on his amendment!
The American people insisted on language in Obamacare dropping employer coverage for members of Congress and their staff and requiring them to go into the new health care exchanges.
Just like other Americans being dumped into Obamacare exchanges, they stood to lose their employer contributions, in this case the generous financing of their health benefits by taxpayers.
But unlike all of the other Americans, Congress had access to President Obama to personally intervene. And he did, with an OPM rule allowing them to avoid the costs of being dumped into Obamacare exchanges by having taxpayers keep paying their premiums. That's wrong.
And because there is no mechanism for employer contributions in the regular Obamacare exchange, Congress filed false documents claiming the House and Senate each have less than 50 employees to qualify for the "small business" exchange. More than 13,700 employees have since signed up. That's fraud.
Congress is concealing the fraud by refusing to disclose who signed the false documents, most recently by blocking a proposed subpoena by Senate Small Business Committee Chairman David Vitter.
Sign below to tell Congress to END this FRAUD and STOP Washington’s exemption from Obamacare!
