The deadline to sign-up for the Affordable Care Act is inching closer.
Open enrollment under the federal law will expire at the end of next month. But until then, lawmakers from both sides of the aisle continue to battle over the issue.
On Tuesday morning, U.S. Senator John Thune spoke in Washington about how Medicare cuts are affecting senior citizens and insurance companies.
“Companies are scrambling for ways to be able to afford their plans. Frequently their only option is to narrow their network of doctors and hospitals or raise their co-payments and deductibles thus reducing senior's choices and raising their costs,” Thune said.
Thune added that President Obama's recent extensions to the healthcare law are proof it will hurt jobs and the economy.
