Lawmakers Seek to be Exempt from Obamcare

Ad Feedback

Some of the same people who passed Obamacare don't want to be forced to obey the controversial law. Members of Congress are working to get exemptions for them and their staff.

Politico  reports lawmakers from both parties have been involved in confidential negotiations on the matter for months.

Obamacare requires Americans to join insurance exchanges. But now congressmen like House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., don't like that idea.

That's because lawmakers and their aides would have to pay thousands of dollars in new health care costs.

This news comes right after Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., announced that Obamacare is "a huge train wreck coming down." Baucus helped to write the law.
