Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) issued the following statement today after voting in favor of H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act:
"Millions of Americans, including many Nebraskans, are losing their health care coverage because of new mandates and requirements in Obamacare. The Keep Your Health Plan Act would help give insurers and consumers more flexibility and options as the disastrous rollout continues of this overly-complex law.
"Obamacare is having devastating consequences for the health insurance market, the economy, and even the basic trust and confidence of the American people in their government. Regardless of how we got here, the President and Congress have an obligation to work together to resolve this crisis and find solutions."
H.R. 3350 would allow health insurance plans available on the individual market today to be offered next year. This would provide millions of Americans the opportunity to keep their policies in 2014.
