I hear this on radio talk shows every now and then (mostly republican) that congress has exempted themselves from Obama care, that is how good it is.
How the White House is weaseling Congress out of ObamaCare.
I have searched online and there are articles that seem to say that congress opted themselves out and their staff from Obama care from fear of high cost may be or poor coverage etc I don't really know. This reuter article throws some light on this
When Congress passed the health reform law known as Obamacare in 2010, an amendment required that lawmakers and their staff members purchase health insurance through the online exchanges that the law created. They would lose generous coverage under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.
The amendment's author, Republican Senator Charles Grassley, argued that if Obamacare plans were good enough for the American public, they were good enough for Congress. Democrats, eager to pass the reforms, went along with it.
But it soon became apparent the provision contained no language that allowed federal contributions toward their health plans that cover about 75 percent of the premium costs.
I am skeptical that it can be true. If it is so good and good for every one, why would they opt out. Did they really opt out of ObamaCare or may be I am missing something?
