No Washington Exemption from Obamacare!

27,095 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!"

Congressional exemption is the height of hypocrisy.
You should have the SAME health care options as the rest of America !!
If you force us to pay for you to feast at the table with the crumbs you allow us to keep, this is tyranny! We employ you!

Obamacare must be done away with for everyone; if not, then it goes for all of us, including politicians/staff/etc.
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!
