Nebraska Farm Bureau Survey Shows Strong Disapproval Of Obama Care

Over 700 Nebraska farmers and ranchers responded to a State Farm Bureau survey regarding the Affordable Care Act.  President Steve Nelson says in less than a week the responses were returned with three quarters of the respondents indicating much higher overall health care costs with the program.

Nelson says while the Affordable Care Act is the law of the land, his group will work with their Congressional delegation and other lawmakers to make changes and improvements to it.

Nelson says most producers purchase their health insurance through the open market and pride themselves on trying to control their costs. He says there’s so much uncertainty with costs in the Affordable Care Act that came out in their survey responses.

He says their survey shows the ACA has major flaws in it that need correcting.
