Indiana senators field questions about Affordable Care Act over holiday weekend

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The healthcare debate dominated some Fourth of July activities.

Indiana Senators Todd Young and Joe Donnelly say they are getting tons of questions from their constituents. Senate leaders are still working on a compromise to find enough Republican votes to repeal and replace the Affordable Healthcare Act.

"I haven't gotten into the habit of drawing red lines," Young said. "I think that's imprudent, especially when you're negotiating with so many other senators who have deep convictions and concerns."

"We've already been to the table," Donnelly said. "I've been to meetings already. I won't be part of a program that takes health care away from Hoosiers."

Republicans hope to have a new version of the bill when they return to Washington DC next week.
