Vitter amendment to "Obamacare"

I removed that chunk of misinformation because it appears that no paid staff can stoop to actual fact-checking.

From the bill itself:
Introduced in Senate (09/12/2013)
No Exemption for Washington from Obamacare Act - Amends the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to extend the requirement for participation in the American Health Benefit Exchange (a state health insurance exchange created by PPACA) to the President, Vice-President, executive branch political appointees, and employees of congressional committees and leadership offices of Congress (currently, this requirement applies to Members of Congress and their staff). Prohibits any government contribution to or subsidy for the health insurance coverage of such officials and employees.

From The Advocate, your tabloid of choice, which was WRONG. Not surprising, because it published the day BEFORE the bill was even introduced.
The health-care law was originally written to require that congressional members and their staffs get their insurance through the exchanges. But a federal rule issued last month made it optional for lawmakers and their employees to continue receiving the subsidized premium health benefits plans just like most large businesses.

I corrected the David Vitter article. In future, please learn how to do proper research on bills. TomJx 13:49, 15 October 2013 (CDT)
