Washington, DC – In response to reports that the Obama Administration is considering new regulations to give unions’ multi-employer health plans a special ObamaCare deal that other Americans wouldn’t be eligible for, House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) and Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-UT) today wrote to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew questioning the legality of such action, outlining their strong opposition to this potential action, and urging the Obama Administration to reverse course.

“We will do whatever is within our power to ensure that the Administration does not once again provide a special exemption to unions at the expense of American taxpayers,” wrote the lawmakers.  “We strongly urge you to reverse course, treat all American workers fairly and comply with the law.”
