***So, let me get this straight. You are claiming that they have access to plans that are not on the Obamacare exchanges?"***
That is not at all what I claimed. Under the ACA, members of Congress were forced into the state run exchanges. In order to get around running into the same problems as others in the individual markets (and to continue to get subsidies), the OPM granted small business status so they could enroll in DC's SHOP. By (high) level of coverage, I was referring to their highly subsidized gold level plans. Everyone has the same plan. This is in essence the same thing, right or wrong, that Repubs are doing.
