No Washington Exemption from Obamacare!

27,176 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!"

What's good is good for the gander. You shoved this down our throats. Now by God you had better eat it too. You are NOT any better than I am or any American from coast to coast! Since when can I be forced to buy anything simply because I am breathing. The commerce clause governs commerce between the states, not within them. Is it a penalty or a tax? It was a penalty until it went before the supreme court. Then magically it became a tax. Can you say "George Orwell"?
All politicians should be required or forced on Obamacare!!!
No exemptions!!!
Forcing people to buy Obamacare or fined if you don't is so against our Constitution and unAmerican.

All politicians should also be on Social Security NOT high paid pensions!!!! Then Americans COLA's would increase quickly and above the pathetic COLA increases of 1% that you give us now!!!!!!!!!!

Forcing people and fining people under the guise or tax...to buy Obamacare or else is criminal...
One should always be prepared to eat his own cooking.

Yet you let the President not hold himself and other sworn in government employee to be held accountable like the people are for Obama care.You should resign you broke your sworn trust to the people!
