U.S. Senate candidate's "Anti-Obamacare Recovery Plan"

NORFOLK, Neb. (KTIV/US92) - A Nebraska U.S Senate hopeful has put together an alternative to the highly debated Affordable Care Act.

Ben Sasse, a native of Plainview, Nebraska, recently came out with his health care proposal called the "Anti-Obamacare Recovery" plan.He explained his plan to a group of 50 Madison County residents at a town hall meeting in Norfolk.

Under the proposal, it gives Nebraskan's the right to own their own health insurance policy.

Ben Sasse says, "People don't want either big government bureaucrats managing their doctor/patient relationship. Or they don't want big insurance bureaucrats that report to their employer. They want a policy like a auto or home owners at State Farm or All State that you can bring your policy with you."

 The proposal is just 20 pages compared to the 2300 pages included in Obamacare.
Sasse is running in the May primary against Republican candidates Sid Dinsdale, Bart McLeay, Clifton Johnson, and Shane Osborn.
