Congressman Leonard Lance (NJ-07) today announced that the House of Representatives will consider H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act, next week. The vote will be the first House action on this issue since the failed launch of the ObamaCare health exchanges and news broke that 800,000 New Jersey residentsmay be at risk of losing their current coverage.
"The President's apology last night on NBC News is too little, too late. Hundreds of my constituents have reached out to my office upon receivingcancellation notices from their insurers. The news of losing their current plans, coupled in many cases with fewer working hours and rate shock from new premiums, has put numerous families in great uncertainty," said Lance. "The President should support our legislation and uphold his promise to the American people that if "you like your plan, you can keep your plan and if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.'"
The favorable vote in the House is expected to be bipartisan in the hope that the U.S. Senate and the White House will support the measure.
