Vitter Amendment Would End Obamacare Exemption for Obama Appointees

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Sen. David Vitter today introduced an amendment to the Marketplace Fairness Act to reiterate that Members of Congress and their staff must enroll into the ObamaCare exchanges and would also eliminate a loophole exempting the President, Vice President, political appointees and some Congressional staff from being forced into the health care insurance exchange.

"Jaws dropped all over the country when they heard that the folks who wrote Obamacare are trying to exempt themselves from the most expensive part -- the insurance exchange," Vitter said. "It's unfair and downright arrogant for the architects of Obamacare to say, we know how bad this will be for you, so we're leaving ourselves out."
