LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) today spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate in response to yet another iteration of a health care proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
“Mr. President, over the past several weeks there have been real discussions, bipartisan discussions about fixing the problems in the affordable care act, about controlling the growth of premiums, about being sure that there is some certainty in the market to prevent the collapse of the individual market which, by the way, will not only affect people who are participating in the Affordable Care Act exchanges, but will affect all those in the individual market,” Senator King said. “And we could stop that. The Senate Health Committee had four days of hearings and round tables coffees with other Senators to talk about what are the problems, what can we do to solve them.
