Members of Congress Have Obamacare, but They Don't Have the Website Trouble

Lawmakers and staffers signing up for health coverage get access to in-person assistance and other backdoor alternatives.

Congress and Capitol Hill employees entering the Washington, D.C., exchanges are having a much nicer time signing up for Obamacare than their constituents, The New York Times reports.

Hill offices are home to in-person help sessions, and Blue Cross Blue Shield offers a special help hotline for members of Congress only. 

While Congress was required to purchase Affordable Care Act insurance so that they would have the constituent experience, their "gold" plans are much nicer than the coverage in which most Americans will enroll.
