Landrieu Statement on President’s Health Care Announcement

November 14, 2013

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., released the following statement after the President announced that insurers can continue to offer canceled plans for an additional year:

"I'm encouraged that the President took action today to stop the cancelation of insurance policies that Americans were promised they could retain. I was particularly happy to see the notification provision included, which is an important part of the bill I have filed. I will be working today and throughout the weeks ahead to support legislation to fix this problem.

"I remain willing to work with anyone who wants to strengthen the Affordable Care Act and keep the significant promise that it holds for our country. If this were easy it would have been done 100 years ago. But for the first time in the history of the country under the Affordable Care Act, middle class and hard working families, entrepreneurs, and small businesses will have access to affordable, quality health care that's there when they need it most. And that is certainly something worth fighting for."
