Senate approves Vitter's ACA amendment

The Senate Republican Conference approved Sen. David Vitter's (R-La.) proposal that requires members of Congress and their staffs to shop on the Affordable Care Act's exchanges, reports Politico. Behind a closed-door meeting Wednesday, Vitter reiterated that "Washington should have to live under Obamacare just like everybody else until we repeal it." Many congressional aides note that, if they leave the subsidized federal health insurance program, they may have to pay more. At this time, it's uncertain whether Vitter's amendment will force GOP senators to make changes to their aides' insurance plans. Article
