Why does Congress get Affordable Care discounts?

December 30, 2013 

I would like someone to explain why members of the U.S. Congress receive a 75 percent discount on Obamacare. I feel it is outrageous and totally unnecessary.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio applied for his family recently. He owes a big explanation to those of us in the middle class who do not qualify for subsidies. Appalling!
