Connecticut Republicans have unveiled a set of legislative proposals they say would make health care affordable for middle-class families in the state, reports the CT Mirror. Senate Minority Leader Kevin Kelly, R-Stratford, said that Connecticut’s health care system is overly complicated and should be revised for patients. Kelly said the plan would involve implementing a reinsurance program to defray high-cost claims, as well as eliminating a tax requirement when purchasing health insurance.
