Braley agrees with Obama's apology for ACA problems

Posted:

At least one Democrat, in Congress, agrees with President Barack Obama's choice to apologize for problems with the roll out of the Affordable Care Act.

Rep. Bruce Braley, (D) Iowa said, "I think it was appropriate for the president to do what he thought was right." Eastern Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley was an early supporter of the Affordable Care Act, but has been critical of the www.healthcare.gov website, and its problems. Rep. Bruce Braley, (D) Iowa said, "The important thing is to focus on eliminating the problem so people can get signed up... even people who's policies are being terminated are guaranteed access to newer, better policies. And, the rates in Iowa are very competitive, and I think people, once they enroll, are gonna find they have more choices, which is what the Affordable Care Act was supposed to be about."

Braley says the country can't afford to go backwards to a time when insurance companies could deny coverage because of a pre-existing condition, or when those companies could cap lifetime benefits if a patient had a catastrophic illness.
