Members of Congress and their aides will essentially be exempt from Obamacare, as the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) will issue a ruling that says the federal government can subsidize the health insurance premiums of members of Congress and their aides even though the law does not say so.
According to Politico, OPM was “under heavy pressure from Capitol Hill” to issue the ruling giving lawmakers and staffers special treatment because Washington feared a so-called “brain drain,” as staffers unable to afford the healthcare plans available on the government exchanges threatened to go into the private sector.
President Barack Obama hinted to outlets like Politico and the New York Times that he was seeking creative solutions to get around the law for legislators and their aides.
