No Exemption from ObamaCare Act S. 1497

AMAC recently delivered a letter of support to the office of Senator David Vitter (R-LA) for his amendment, S. 1497, “No Exemption from ObamaCare Act.”  This important piece of legislation promises to end ObamaCare exemptions and special taxpayer subsidies for members of Congress and their staffs.  In addition, it requires the president, vice president, cabinet secretaries, and all other political appointees to be enrolled in PPACA’s health care exchange – just like tens of millions of other Americans.  AMAC believes S. 1497 is critical to holding our elected leaders accountable to the laws they establish and to ensuring that no one is permitted to live above the law.  Senator Vitter’s willingness to stand on principle demands that Washington be subject to the law like everyone else.  For this reason, AMAC proudly supports the “No Exemption from ObamaCare Act,” a responsible step toward fairness and government accountability.

The Honorable David Vitter
U.S. Senate
516 Hart Senate Office Building
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Vitter,

On behalf of the 881,000 members of AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens, I am writing to offer our strong support to your amendment, S. 1497, the “No Exemption from ObamaCare Act.” This responsible piece of legislation ensures that American lawmakers receive no special exemption from the laws they create – including the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), known more commonly as “ObamaCare.”

At its inception, ObamaCare contained clear language stating that members of Congress and their staffs are to procure their health insurance from the ObamaCare exchange. Yet, the Obama administration recently made a deal with lawmakers behind closed doors, exempting them from the very law they enacted. This amendment promises to end ObamaCare exemptions and special taxpayer subsidies for members of Congress and their staffs. In addition, it requires the president, vice president, cabinet secretaries, and all other political appointees to be enrolled in PPACA’s health care exchange – just like tens of millions of other Americans.

AMAC believes S. 1497 is critical to holding our elected leaders accountable to the laws they establish and to ensuring that no one is permitted to live above the law. If Congress and the executive branch have deemed ObamaCare good enough for the American people, then they should be willing to fully submit to the law themselves.

Like many American citizens, AMAC remains very concerned about how ObamaCare will impact individuals, families, and mature Americans. This legislation is an important step in making sure that Washington does not abuse its authority or unfairly benefit from taxpayer subsidies. Thanks to your leadership and willingness to stand on principle, we are more than proud to support S. 1497, the “No Exemption from ObamaCare Act.”

Sincerely,
Dan Weber
President and Founder of AMAC
