Last week’s Senate health care vote made one thing abundantly clear — Congress has an inability to govern.
Senate Republicans’ failure to repeal and replace Obamacare after seven years of promises has left millions of Americans stuck with a failing law even as members of Congress receive special Obamacare subsidies. Now it is time for Congress’ special treatment to end.
Since 2014, Congress has received a special exemption that allowed the members of Congress and their staffs to file as a small business. This classification allowed them to receive subsidies for their Obamacare plans at the expense of taxpayers. This is unacceptable.
Congress should not be exempted from Obamacare’s skyrocketing premiums. Share if you agree.
Now President Trump is also indicating his support for ending this special treatment that Congress enjoys. It is great to see the president standing against the special interests that rule the swamp and instead advocating for the American people.
Congress is out of excuses. There should be no more special treatment for members of Congress and their staff. If they are unable to repeal and replace Obamacare, they should shoulder the burden with their fellow Americans.
