No Washington Exemption from Obamacare!

27,323 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!"

Why do you think you are BETTER than the people who voted for you? No special rules for CONGRESS.
Our politicians take enough from us! You have no right to put yourselve's above us in healthcare too!
You made us deal with socialized medicine against our will. Now it is time for you to deal with the Affordable care act. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.
If it is suppose to be good enough for US then it is good enough for YOU! We are sick of all the exemptions you politicians get as well as getting paid for LIFE. You are not doing your jobs. You work for US and it's high time you get that through your head.
We have some real bloodsuckers in Congress.
Equal and fair justice for ALL Americans
