Congress Exempt from Obamacare in Last-Minute Deal

Ad Feedback

Senators, representatives, and their top aides will be able to stay under the current subsidized health care system.

That means they will continue to get a taxpayer-funded contribution to help pay for their health care premiums.

A last-minute deal worked out before Congress went on their five-week summer vacation gets lawmakers out of the original language of Obamacare, which said members and their aides had to use its health care plans.

Republicans like Sen. David Vitter of Louisiana slammed the move, calling it a "behind-closed-doors deal, announced right after Congress is safely away from the crime scene."

"This is exactly why America rightly hates Washington," Vitter charged. "Obamacare's a train wreck, even for Congress. So it gets fixed -- for Congress only. What the flip about fixing it for America?"
