No Washington Exemption from Obamacare!

27,071 Letters and Emails Sent So Far

When the Democrats were rushing the health care law through Congress before most of them even knew what was in it, Republican Senator Chuck Grassley offered an amendment requiring members of Congress and their staff to go into the new health care exchanges, to experience the same thing millions of Americans would experience and create a strong incentive, therefore, for them to make sure the system works. The version of the amendment that passed removed proposed language that would have authorized taxpayers to continue paying for their coverage.

Like many Americans being dumped into Obamacare exchanges, members of Congress and their staff stood to lose their employer contributions - in this case, the generous financing of their health benefits by taxpayers they had before the law passed and took it away.

But unlike all of the other Americans in that situation, Congress had access to President Obama to personally intervene on their behalf.  And he did, with an illegal rule allowing them to avoid the costs of being dumped into Obamacare exchanges. That's wrong.

Tell Congress: "Support David Vitter's No Washington Exemption from Obamacare Act to force Congress to live with the same law it is imposing on the rest of us!"

Congress believes ObamaCare is good for everyone, except themselves. That explains how bad OC is!
IF IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THEN IT'S GOOD ENOUGH FOR CONGRESS AND THEIR AND STAFF!
Mr. Rubio,
We have got to put a stop to this insidious mandate forcing people to pay more for health care than they had to before. And on top of that the fact that the lawmakers that's telling Americans just how wonderful Obamacare is don't have to have it. What gives with that?
Mr. Rubio, I believe you're a sharp young mind and you've positioned yourself for a very good career "helping folks" if you will stand up with the little guy and especially all of us here in your home state of Florida. I'd like to continue to vote for you and keep you in Washington, but I'll be completely honest with you ... if we (the American voter) has to clean house and start over, I am more than willing to do that as well. I have children and grandchildren in Florida and the Washington spending spree has got to stop. Where is all the great minds that could easily put together some real plans to grow this great country instead of piling on so much debt it can never recover. Something has got to be done and you are the man we sent to do it.
Stop with the double standards and let's roll our sleeves up and build something great for our kids.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH CONGRESS? DO THEY THINK WE ARE STUPID? THE HIGHER THE MONKEYS IN THE TREE THE MORE THEY SHOW THEIR ASS!
Pres. Obama is lawless in changing this law as he desires just to put off effects until AFTER elections.
Each person/citizen is equal under the law.
