Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) announced on Friday that he will introduce legislation aimed at allowing Americans satisfied with their health care insurance to keep it, a key promise he says President Barack Obama has broken with his signature health care program.

“One of the most important promises made by President Obama and Democrat congressional leadership to promote the Affordable Care Act was that Americans who were satisfied with their health plans could keep them," Johnson said in a press release. "That promise has been broken."

"More than a million Americans have been notified that the plans they like with the coverage they have chosen have been canceled," he continued. "Millions more Americans will have the plans of their choice canceled in months to come.”

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

The Wisconsin senator said he will file the bill next week and hopes to garner the support of his colleagues from both parties.
