St. Joseph, Mich. A local congressman is introducing a bill that would protect people's current insurance plans if they don't want to enroll through the new healthcare exchange.
A large group showed up with lots of questions about the new healthcare law during a presentation at the St. Joseph Memorial Library Tuesday night.
But, Republican Fred Upton says there are problems with the Affordable Care Act.
He says legislators are hearing from millions of people who have gotten notices saying their private health plans will be cancelled because of the law.
So, Upton's introducing the Keep your Plan Act, which he says would prevent that from happening.
“It adds another option but the bottom line is if you like your health insurance, and you've been satisfied with it, you can actually keep it and not be penalized by being forced to go into something else and pay a fine on top of that as well,” says Republican Congressman Fred Upton.
Indiana Congresswoman Jackie Walorski announced Tuesday she supports the legislation. Upton says he hopes to bring it to the house floor for discussion and a vote in the coming weeks.
