Rep. Hanna responds to Affordable Care Act

(WBNG Binghamton) President Barack Obama has apologized to three million Americans who lost their insurance because of the Affordable Care Act.

President Obama had promised that Americans would be able to keep their healthcare plans.

The apology was part of an interview with NBC yesterday.

Friday, Congressman Richard Hanna spoke out about the recent controversy.

"The idea that you could keep what you had, we've heard that for three years," said Hanna. "Frankly, we wouldn't have this healthcare bill if people were told you can't keep what you have or you might loose it."

Hanna voted to defund the controversial bill and said apologies are good, but they're not enough.

Hanna said anytime a bill this size has such a large impact on the economy without broad support, political battles are bound to happen.
