Dr. Gingrey Declines Obamacare Subsidy
Will Decline Government Subsidy, Special Treatment for Congress and Purchase Private Health Insurance
October 1, 2013 – As health care exchanges go online today and Obamacare is officially forced upon Americans, Congressman Phil Gingrey announced he will refuse preferential treatment offered to Members of Congress. Gingrey will decline the special subsidy given to Members of Congress and withdraw completely from the Federal Employee Health Benefits Plan.
“Congress should not receive special treatment, especially when the rest of Americans are suffering the consequences of bad legislation,” Gingrey said. “I will be personally seeking alternatives for my family’s health care coverage, just like the rest of Americans affected by Obamacare. In the meantime, I will do everything in my power to fight this terrible piece of legislation.”
