Sign the petition: Make Trumpcare mandatory for Congress

Will you sign and share my petition telling Congress that should they vote to pass Trumpcare, they must give up eligibility for the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program?

Add your name: No taxpayer subsidies for Congressional health insurance if they pass Trumpcare

Should the Republicans in the U.S. Congress pass Trumpcare, legally make members of Congress, their staffs, and their respective families eligible ONLY for individual insurance plans offered through Trumpcare insurance exchanges, without any additional benefits or subsidies provided by the U.S. government. This group must personally experience the effects of Trumpcare and be barred from the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program.

Dear fellow MoveOn member,

If Republican legislators are going to introduce massive, structural change into the health care sector, it is only fair that they should personally experience the effects of this change. Direct empirical experience of the law will be the best test of its proclaimed benefits.

We should let Congress enjoy the same quality of insurance that will be available to Americans on the self-insured market.

That's why I started a petition to end taxpayer subsidies for Congress's health care and to make Trumpcare mandatory for members of Congress, their staffs, and their respective families if they vote to pass Trumpcare.
