Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-NY) says that there is no question that members of Congress who are paid $174,000 a year are entitled to taxpayer-funded subsidies when they purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchanges.
Under Obamacare, only people whose income is below 400 percent of the federal poverty level are eligible for a federal subsidy to buy health insurance on the government exchanges.
However, a recent rule made by the Office of Personnel Management allows members of Congress and their staffs to keep the taxpayer-funded employer contribution they currently receive under the Federal Employees Health Benefits Program (FEHBP) when they enter the exchanges. The employer contribution covers about 75 percent of their premium costs.

Rangel is a crook who is entitled to a stretch in the slammer rather than another taxpayer subsidy.

They should also be exempt from TAXES (like Rangel)
and from all “laws” they pass for others.
“Rangel is a crook who is entitled to a stretch in the slammer rather than another taxpayer subsidy.”
That’s heartless! I’d suggest that someone lead him to the shore and allow him to start a leisurely swim from his condo in the DR to Miami. See ya, Chuckie!

I will - starts with tar, follows with copious quantities of feathers and ends with a rail. Hope I get to see it in my lifetime.
Cuz you give up so much of yourselves to “serve” us?
You are laughing stocks with no conscience what so ever.
