Blunt: Congress Must Use Obamacare Exchanges



One popular talking point about Obamacare has been the assertion that members of Congress and their staffs are exempt from the federal health care law. Missouri Senator Roy Blunt tells News Talk KZRG that Congress is actually mandated to participate in the insurance exchange system.

"I do know that the only people in America required to use the exchange are members of the House and Senate, and their employees, as opposed to all federal employees."

Blunt adds that he's not sure yet how his office will proceed about joining the exchanges once they go live October 1st.
