The healthcare debate continues in the U.S. Senate as Republicans try to find a way to repeal and replace Obamacare. Governor Pete Ricketts says it is important for Nebraskans that the health care marketplace is stabilized.
Governor Ricketts says, “It is absolutely critical that the Senate and the House act on healthcare reform. We are down to one insurer in Nebraska and we need to have something that will stabilize the insurance marketplace. I want to complement Senator Fischer and Senator Sasse for continuing to vote to move forward this process. It is absolutely vital.”
Governor Ricketts says we need to make sure that we have insurers on that individual exchange marketplace so the one of the top priorities of this legislation is to address that specific issue.
