House GOP tweaks Obama, schedules vote on Keep Your Health Plan Act, 88 Co-Sponsors (Video)

November 06, 2013, 04:15 pm

House Republican leaders announced Wednesday the lower chamber will vote next week on a bill that would allow people to keep their health insurance plan if they like it.

The vote hits at President Obama, who, during the debate over the Affordable Care Act, said people could keep their healthcare plans if they like them. Millions of people, however, have gotten cancelation notices because of ObamaCare's new standards.

Late Wednesday afternoon, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) announced via Twitter that the bill would get a vote.

The Keep Your Health Plan Act, H.R. 3350, was introduced last week by House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) and more than two dozen Republicans. As of Wednesday, co-sponsorship had grown to 88 members.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.

I really liked it: "Vote gridlock". Keep them slinging mud at each other in the halls of Congress, and it will be less likely that mud ends up on the backs of We The People.

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Why are they traitors? Not

Why are they traitors? Not that this will likely work. These companies won't likely bother keeping plans around that are on life support.

Or are you saying they traitors because it will lessen pressure on the dems and a full defund or repeal effort? Get the dems off the hot seat?
