The first Democrat has signed on to a House Republican bill that would allow people to keep their current health insurance plans: Rep. John Barrow (D-Ga.).
Barrow announced his support for the "Keep Your Health Plan Act" in a statement Tuesday.
"When folks were first introduced to the Affordable Care Act, they were promised that they could keep their current plan if they liked it," Barrow said. "As it turns out, that’s not the case today. ... This bill is the most responsible, bipartisan approach to removing the insurance burdens many will face in 2014, and I’m proud to work with my colleagues to move it forward."
