Sen. Johnson: Congress should consider Obamacare "fixes" in 2014

UNDATED (WRN)   One of Wisconsin's U-S Senators hopes the New Year will bring some changes to the Affordable Care Act.

Republican Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) says he's accepted the fact that Obamacare is now the law of the land. Still, he says the long list of problems, such as delays in enrollment and the Obama Administration back-tracking on its promise that people could keep their current coverage, are signs changes need to be made.

Johnson says he's hopeful Democrats will actually try to address the short-falls with the health care law before the midterm elections next November.Johnson says he's willing to work with Senate Democrats who acknowledge there is a problem, and want to make a good faith effort to fix it.

Johnson says he hopes lawmakers in Washington will get serious in the New Year about fixing problems with Obamacare. The Wisconsin Republican says Congress should eliminate coverage mandates and give people more freedom to purchase the coverage they want.
