White House wants to scrap the health care law

Labels: ,

State Rep. Jason Probst, D-Hutchinson, thinks Kansas legislators are “passive” and “reactive” at legislating.
Lobbyists “are not shy at all about proposing legislation” that reflects the interests of their groups. Legislators listen to opposing groups and try to find a compromise, he said. “I would like to see more legislation coming from legislators,” he said.
Probst entered the House in mid-2017 and will start his first full two-year term Jan. 14. He is spearheading four bills for the new session.
Pre-existing conditions
A judge in Texas ruled last year that the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional and the White House wants to scrap the health care law that provides insurance protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Probst wants Kansas to install its own law as a buffer.
