Sen. Ron Johnson (R., Wis.) announced Friday that he will file the "If You Like Your Health Plan, You Can Keep It Act"  next week.

Using President Barack Obama's own words against him, Johnson said that the president broke his promise that the Affordable Care Act would not affect those who wanted to stay on their health insurance plan. Johnson said that in a few months millions will have their plans canceled by insurance companies due to Obamacare. 

"The ‘If You Like Your Health Plan, You Can Keep It Act’ will amend the law to make Obamacare live up to the promises of the politicians who sold the plan to the American public," Johnson said.
