WASHINGTON, D.C. (WOWO): Indiana Congressman Jim Banks thinks Congress should practice what they preach when it comes to the future of federal health care laws.

Banks announced he would co-sponsor a bill that would prevent members of Congress from exempting themselves from the American Health Care Act, the federal health care plan Congressional Republicans and President Trump are working on to replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

Banks says Congress should have to live under the laws it passes, and calls Arizona Representative Martha McSally’s bill “common sense.”
