Congressional Republicans who assailed the Democrats’ healthcare law in the run-up to the midterm elections are facing pressure to decline government-provided coverage when they take office.
GOP Reps.-elect Bobby Schilling (Ill.) and Mike Kelly (Pa.), both opponents of the law, have already vowed to refuse government-backed health insurance when they come to Capitol Hill next year.
“I have term-limited myself,” Schilling told ABC News last week. “I am not taking the pension. I am not taking pay raises, and my family and I are bringing our own healthcare to Washington, D.C.”
