Rep. DeSantis: End the Illegal Congressional ObamaCare Exemption

Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is calling on President Trump to end the illegal congressional exemption from ObamaCare:

In a letter to President Trump last week, Rep. Ron DeSantis called for an immediate end to a 2013 rule that provides special healthcare subsidies for members of Congress.

By ending this special treatment “with the stroke of a pen,” the Florida representative told Newsmax, “the president can also speed up the repeal of Obamacare. Fewer members will vote to keep it if they have to suffer under it like everyone else.”

Rep. DeSantis is right.  There should be no special treatment for Washington.  If ObamaCare is the law of the land, Congress and their staffers should have to live under it, too.
