Today, U.S. Congressman Patrick E. Murphy (FL-18) cosponsored the bipartisan Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013, to make sure that individuals that like their current health care plans are able to keep them. Murphy will vote in favor of the bill, introduced by Congressman Fred Upton (R-MI), when it is considered by the House of Representatives this Friday.
"I came to Congress to solve problems and this bill would do just that by keeping the promise made that you can keep your health plan if you so choose. The Affordable Care Act needs improvements, which is why I have supported several measures to make sure we get this right, including delaying both the individual and business mandates by one year, extending open enrollment and delaying the individual mandate due to issues with healthcare.gov, repealing or delaying the health insurance tax, repealing the medical device tax, restoring full use of health savings accounts, and making sure seniors continue to be protected from cuts. I will work with any member, Democrat or Republican, who is willing to work together to find common-sense solutions such as this to put the American people first."
