And Congress isn't being treated any differently than anyone else who has employer-covered insurance, Peters said. 'If you're covered and you like your insurance, you can keep it,' he said."

Gary Peters marked Saturday as the 3rd anniversary of the Affordable Care Act becoming law by highlighting the many ways it's helping families across Michigan. Peters also voiced his disappointment with Lansing Republicans for putting ideology above practical problem solving by refusing to partner in the health care exchange marketplace."
