Walorski Co-Sponsors Bill to Prevent Health Care Exemption for Members of Congress
WASHINGTON – U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today signed onto legislation that would ensure Members of Congress are not exempted from the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
“Members of Congress should not be treated differently from any other Americans,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “As we continue working to provide relief to individuals and families facing higher premiums, fewer options, and a collapsing system under Obamacare, this common-sense fix will ensure Congress lives by the same rules as everyone else.”
H.R. 2192, which was introduced earlier this week by Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), would repeal the exemption of Members of Congress and their staff from certain waivers if the American Health Care Act becomes law. The text of the bill is available here.
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District of Indiana, serving as a member of the House Ways and Means Committee.
