Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) spoke on the House floor today to ask President Donald Trump to immediately eliminate the illicit health care subsidies for Congress.
“Republicans have promised for years to repeal and replace ObamaCare, yet this effort has seemed to stall in the Senate,” DeSantis said. “The best way to restart the ObamaCare repeal process is simple: make Congress live under it. The President can make this happen.”
DeSantis continued, “Make members live under ObamaCare as written. If you make them live under ObamaCare, my guess is that they will vote to quickly repeal ObamaCare.”
DeSantis has been leading the charge to end the ObamaCare subsidies since 2013 and introduced H.R. 499, the No Exemption for Washington from Obamacare Act, in January.
