Congressman Mike Rogers said he was pleased to see the passage of H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013, in the House of Representatives today. This bill, if passed by the Senate and signed by the president, would allow health care plans on the individual market to remain available so people across East Alabama can have the option to keep their current health care plans. Rogers was a cosponsor of the legislation introduced by Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI).
“The passage of the Keep Your Health Plan Act could help remedy a huge problem with Obamacare. Although the President promised time and time again Americans could keep their health plans, on October 1st, many people received letters from their health plan providers that stated the opposite. This bill will help fix that problem by allowing people to keep their current plans.
“Americans are suffering because of the Obamacare disaster and I will continue to work to repeal it. Since the Senate refuses to accept reality that the law is broken, I hope they will quickly act on this bill to help bring some relief to hard-working Americans being hurt by rising healthcare premiums and the loss of their health plans,” Rogers said.
Rogers serves as Chairman of the Strategic Forces subcommittee on the Armed Services Committee and is a senior member of the Homeland Security and Agriculture committees.
