Republicans Push to Eliminate Obamacare Exemption for Congress

Republican Senators Mike Enzi and David Vitter have introduced legislation to make members, political appointees, the Vice-President and President pay out-of-pocket for their healthcare.

Currently, the Federal Government picks up the tab for 75% of their premiums.

This legislation would also reverse the recent Obama Administration decision to remove members of Congress and their staff from the requirements of Obamacare.

If Obamacare is good enough for the American people, why isn't it good enough for President Obama, members of Congress, or their staff?
