U.S. Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., proposed a bill to put Congress on the same health care plan as everyone else today.
It's called the "No Obamacare Subsidies for Members of Congress Act of 2013."
The measure would prevent senators and congressional representatives from getting government funds to buy a health insurance policy on the exchange.
Capito said it isn't fair for lawmakers to be treated any differently than the people they represent.
