Helping Families Keep Their Plan & Peace of Mind

WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement after bipartisan House passage of H.R. 3522, the Employee Health Care Protection Act, which would allow Americans in the group insurance market to keep or choose the plans they like

“In this tough economy, hardworking families need all the peace of mind they can get, and by helping them keep the plan they like, Bill Cassidy’s bill does just that.  It would mean getting more people back to work, lowering costs at home, and restoring opportunity.  Of course, to protect our workers from all of ObamaCare’s broken promises, we need to repeal this law and replace it with solutions that lower costs and protect jobs.  For now, given that Senate Democrats promised Americans early and often that they would be able to keep their plans, we hope this bill will not be consigned to the same fate as so many of our jobs bills.”
