Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) will propose a bill this week to graciously allow Americans to keep their health care plans.
NOLA reported:

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said she will propose legislation to ensure Americans can keep their current insurance even if it may not comply with minimum standards under the Affordable Care Act.

Landrieu’s comments Wednesday came after reports that insurance companies have sent out hundreds of thousands of letters telling people with individual policies — not obtained under a group, or through employers — that they must seek other insurance because theirs doesn’t comply with the health law’s mandated coverage.

Republicans said those actions contradict numerous statements by President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats, including Landrieu, that people could keep their policies if they were satisfied with them, even after the Affordable Care Act was implemented.

Landrieu and fellow senate Democrats voted against a similar bill in 2010.
