Liz Cheney: Enzi Should Renounce Obamacare Deal

By Dan Weil   |   Wednesday, 14 Aug 2013 03:46 PM

Wyoming GOP Senate candidate Liz Cheney is going after her primary opponent, Sen. Mike Enzi, over the issue of health care.

In an e-mail and online petition Tuesday, she said Enzi and other elected officials should "renounce" a recent policy implemented by the Obama administration to ensure that Obamacare doesn't cost congressional employees their generous government health subsidies, Politico reports.

"The hypocrisy is stunning, but all too typical of how Congress works," Cheney said in a statement, according to the news service.

"Members cut special deals for themselves so they don’t feel the pain their laws inflict on the general public. That’s one of the reasons I’m running for the Senate — to end this self-serving, behind the scenes deal-making."

Enzi didn't take the blow lying down.

"This was a decision by the administration, not Congress," the senator's spokesman Coy Knobel said in an e-mail.

"Sen. Enzi has already opposed it and the other exemptions and delays for businesses, insurance companies, etc. Sen. Enzi will continue his efforts to defund and dismantle Obamacare. He’ll make decisions about his own health care without help from candidate Cheney."
