Peters Willing To Work On Bipartisan Healthcare Bill

Talk about a new healthcare law should be resuming in the Senate after a vote was postponed before the holiday weekend. U.S. Senator Gary Peters, a Democrat from Michigan, tells Michigan News Network the bill is flawed , but he’s willing to work on a plan to fix what doesn’t work.

“I think we might have a chance to do it the right way if this bill just fails, and it’s clear that the Republicans can’t push through a highly unpopular bill,” Peters said.

Peters says many Republicans don’t support the current bill because 22 million Americans would lose health insurance. He also contents older people would pay more in health insurance premiums.
