VITTER: Make Washington Live By The Law

Do you remember when President Obama told us “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” over and over again?

Please visit LiveByYourLaws.com and sign the petition to demand Members of Congress not exempt themselves from Obamacare.

It was a lie. Although, it’s not really a lie for Washington insiders who shoved ObamaCare into law in the first place. They’ve made sure to spare themselves from this disaster.

You may have heard about this – there’s a provision of the health care law says that members of Congress and all of their staff are required to procure their health care coverage on the ObamaCare exchange, just like millions of other Americans who are being dumped from their previous employer-provided coverage.

But  in a classic case of Washington protecting its own, the Obama administration is trying to (illegally) “fix” things for the insiders. They invented a rule out of thin air, allowing members of Congress and their staffs to stay off the exchange to keep many of their staff members off the exchange entirely.

And members of Congress and staff who do go on the exchange, as the law states, would get a huge taxpayer-funded subsidy that is not available to any other American at the same income level!

The Obama administration came up with an illegal administrative fix to this provision in order to take the financial sting out and largely undo it for Washington insiders.

To reverse this Washington double standard, I’ve introduced legislation that would end this ObamaCare exemption for DC insiders.

It would require all members of Congress and their staff to purchase their health insurance on the ObamaCare exchange without the help of special taxpayer-funded subsidies.

The sooner Washington eats its own cooking, the sooner it will start getting things right, on ObamaCare and a lot more.

There is no reason Washington should be exempt from Obamacare. Please show your support now.
