House Passes Bipartisan “Keep Your Health Plan Act”

House Passes Bipartisan “Keep Your Health Plan Act” 

Thompson communicates additional stories from constituents about  cancelled insurance plans and health care law’s economic impact 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Glenn ‘GT’ Thompson (PA-5) today voted to support H.R. 3350, the Keep Your Health Plan Act of 2013, which allows health plans currently available on the individual market to continue next year, providing Americans the opportunity to continue to enroll in those plans without the Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) individual mandate penalty.  The measure passed by a vote of 261-157.

“President Obama repeatedly stated that if the American people liked their current health plans, they could keep them,” stated Thompson. “The lackluster roll out and website crashes will probably disappear over time, but the insurance cancellations and unbearable cost increases are substantial, long lasting and adversely impacting people’s lives.”  

“Hundreds of constituents from across the Fifth District have received notices that their current policies have become more expensive or, worse, are now cancelled entirely as a result of this law,” added Thompson. “The President has offered little assurance that he can save the plans that he promised would not be cancelled; his administration appears incapable of correcting the law’s growing number of flaws.”

“We have a responsibility to prevent even more economic harm from being imposed upon hard working Americans,” Thompson said. “Today’s vote was a strong step forward in this effort. I commend my colleagues on both sides of the aisle who joined in passing the Keep Your Health Plan Act.”

I am all for allowing those people who had these plans to be grandfathered in. Allowing more people is just dumb. All you would be doing is adding the problems with the old system to the problems of the new system.

The ONLY purpose for Obama extending these policies for one year is to help Democrats in the 2014 elections.After that, the same situation will occur that is happening right now. Why should middle aged men be forced to buy maternity coverage? Why should women be forced to buy insurance that covers testicular cancer screenings?

The new system already has problems.

Its too late for alot of us. Our companys have already cancelled us. There is no way they can reinstate us 7:39 Us working people have to pay for the welfare. They are the only ones that can afford to have kids because all their benafits are paid for by the working Rich get richer welfare gets it all for free and the working get the royal shaft

@7:39 Please learn how insurance 3orks. A group of people are pooled together so they share medical cost. The point is to pay for medical benefits that you might not need so that other people pay for the medical cost that you might need. If we narrow it down so that the only ones who pay for a benefit are those that use a benefit, we might as well not have insurance. If only those who are planning on having a kid are force to pay maternity benefits than the cost of that insurance will be more than the maternity cost. They would have to pay maternity cost + admin cost + profit.

I have had my health insurance cancelled at the end of this year due to Obamacare. I called my insurance company yesterday about what Obama stated the other day and it will not work for my cancelled policy. He is saying more and more lies. And they are catching up to him quickly.

He should be renamed President Obamacare because that is how everyone is going to remember him.

we all should quit working so we can qualify for the Obamacare freebies. I found many that will pay my rent and all the stuff I need. the welfare will pay for me to go to schoolto.
