(The Hill) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) quickly shot down speculation about a possible “exemption” for lawmakers and staff from the central part of ObamaCare.

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson said Reid has never considered exempting members and staff from the law’s insurance exchanges, and will not consider it in the future.

“There are not now, have never been, nor will there ever be any discussions about exempting members of Congress or Congressional staff from Affordable Care Act provisions that apply to any employees of any other public or private employer offering health care,” Jentelson said.
