“Keep Your Own Insurance” Bill Heads For A Vote With Both House And Senate Versions

Posted By on November 7, 2013

It’s only fair play to admit when something’s wrong especially if it’s obvious.  The President’s health plan has termites in it, and the termites will take down the whole structure if not fixed soon.

From The Hill:

House Republican leaders announced Wednesday the lower chamber will vote next week on a bill that would allow people to keep their health insurance plan if they like it. 

Upton’s bill authorizes insurance companies to keep offering plans that they have said need to be canceled because of ObamaCare’s new insurance standards. Since early October, companies have sent out millions of notices to enrollees saying their plans will be scrapped and, in many cases, replaced by more expensive plans.

The Keep Your Health Plan Act, H.R. 3350, was introduced last week by House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and more than two dozen Republicans. As of Wednesday, co-sponsorship had grown to 88 members and still growing.

“Despite the president’s repeated promise of ‘if you like your plan, you can keep it,’ many Americans are now learning the sad reality that their current plan will no longer exist beginning on Jan. 1,” Upton said last week. “Instead they are forced to purchase healthcare that they cannot afford through a system that does not even work, and that’s just not fair.”

Even the Democrats want in on this,  including two in the Senate — Sens. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) and Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) — who have proposed a similar bill.
