Heller seeks ruling putting more Hill staff in ObamaCare exchanges

Heller criticized the OPM for not expanding the requirement in a recent ruling that allowed the federal government to continue contributing to the cost of its employees' healthcare plans.

"I encourage you to clarify this issue once and for all and require in addition to Members of Congress that all Congressional staff – Committee and Leadership – to go into the exchanges," Heller wrote.

Heller also supports legislation to require the president and all political appointees in the executive branch to use the exchanges. 

"Let me reiterate my deep concern for the implementation of the health care exchanges," Heller said. "However, if every American must be subject to ObamaCare, then all Members of Congress and their staff, you, and all political appointees must be included in this onerous mandate as well."
