When the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion ruled al­low­ing mem­bers of Con­gress a health care sub­sidy un­der Obama­care, act­iv­ist Liz Cheney (R) “was quick to at­tack” Sen. Mi­chael En­zi (R) “and the rest of Con­gress for har­bor­ing a be­hind-the-scenes deal” ex­empt­ing law­makers and staff from the law’s ef­fects. Now, En­zi plans “to in­tro­duce le­gis­la­tion that would re­quire the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion, Con­gress and their staffers to pay out of pock­et for in­sur­ance offered on the ex­changes.” Cheney’s camp called the move a “clas­sic cam­paign con­ver­sion”; En­zi’s called it an ex­ample of his prob­lem-solv­ing re­cord.
