Some congressional Republican staff members aren’t happy about the vote their bosses will take this evening to eliminate their health insurance subsidies.
“I understand it politically, and as a talking point,” one Republican staffer told Mother Jones. “But Congress literally threw staff under the bus on this…You’re hurting staff assistants who are sorting your mail.”
The House’s latest spending bill would delay Obamacare’s individual mandate for one year and eliminate subsidies for Congress members and their staff. A vote is expected sometime around 8 p.m. ET.
