We all observe that in recent days, calls from outside conservative groups to rescind the OPM regulation for members of the Congress – either through legislative action or executive directive – have grown.
We all know that President Trump has previously declined numerous requests from Roll Call to weigh-in on the possibility, but in his recent tweet, he wrote about this topic.
“If a new HealthCare Bill is not approved quickly, BAILOUTS for Insurance Companies and BAILOUTS for Members of Congress will end very soon!”
This tweet may mean that President Donald Trump is considering stripping the employer contribution for health insurance away from members of Congress.
The Senate failed to repeal or replace Obamacare, and we all see that Congress wrote themselves special subsidies, so they don’t have to live under Obamacare.
President Trump could end the exemption that President Obama gave members of Congress and their staffs that make them the only participants in the ObamaCare exchanges to receive generous subsidies from their employer (the American people) to pay for their health insurance.
What do you think?
Should Trump Cancel Congress’ Special Healthcare Exemptions?
