CONGRESSMAN PITTENGER CO-SPONSORS “NO OBAMACARE SUBSIDIES FOR CONGRESS ACT”
WASHINGTON – Following through on his announcement at a town hall in August, Congressman Robert Pittenger (NC-09) has officially co-sponsored the No Obamacare Subsidies for Congress Act. Introduced Monday evening by Congresswoman Shelley Capito (WV-02), the legislation prohibits Members of Congress from receiving any special subsidy for Obamacare not offered to ordinary Americans.
“This is about fairness,” commented Congressman Pittenger. “Members of Congress should be subject to the same laws as the American people, and this legislation ensures that no Member of Congress will receive special treatment when it comes to Obamacare.
“Last month, I became one of the first Members of Congress to announce I will voluntarily decline the special subsidy for Obamacare. Today, I encourage more of my colleagues to join me in supporting and quickly passing the No Obamacare Subsidies for Congress Act.
“We were elected to serve, not be served.”
