Last week Iowa Representative Bruce Braley voted with Republicans on a measure to allow Americans to keep their current health care plan.
The bill is an attempt to fix the Affordable Care Act as millions of Americans receive cancellation notices from their insurance company.
In an official release from Braley’s congressional office in 2010, Braley stated the bill would, “allow Americans to maintain their choice of health insurance.”
On Wednesday, Radio Iowa’s Dar Danielson asked Braley if similar claims from President Obama that you would be able to keep your insurance misled Americans.
Rep. Braley replied, “I think that the people in Iowa are smart, they knew that there was a lot of discussion about this bill and they’re smart enough to figure out what went on. I’m going to continue to talk to them about what I’m doing to try to fix these problems and make them work for Iowans.”
Braley is the only Democrat in the race to replace Senator Tom Harkin in the Senate.
