SALT LAKE CITY — Senator Hatch is hearing from some Utahns who say they would be negatively affected by a healthcare reform bill.
Advocacy groups delivered letters on Wednesday from what they say are 1,000 Utahns who fear they will be hurt by changes to Obamacare.
And petitions with 5,000 signatures were also given to Senator Hatch’s staff at the federal building in Salt Lake City. They ask Senators Hatch and Lee to vote against the senate healthcare bill. The groups are Save Medicaid Utah, Communities United and Planned Parenthood, which would lose money under the new act.
Hatch’s spokesman says they were pleased to meet with the groups and get their input.
