Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) and Sen. Ron Johnson (WI) held a press conference today to announce their joint legislation to halt the cancellation of existing health insurance plans that do not conform to ObamaCare’s mandates. The If You Like Your Health Care Plan You Can Keep It Actwill grandfather in all plans offered before December 31, 2013. DeSantis will be introducing the House version and has already garnered the support of over 30 members. DeSantis issued the following statement:
“The President repeatedly guaranteed Americans that ‘if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.’ Now that millions of Americans are seeing their policies canceled due to ObamaCare, it is clear that this was a reckless deception designed to facilitate the law’s passage against the will of the people. I applaud Senator Ron Johnson for his leadership on this issue and I look forward to helping garner support for this measure in the House of Representatives."
