Idaho Falls, Idaho ( KIDK ) Health insurance continues to be a big concern for many Idahoans, this includes Senator Jim Risch.
He addresses allegations on his attempts to stop the federal government from deciding on the healthcare bill.
The Senator says he's not trying to stop federal government by refusing to sign bill, instead he claims he's putting the power where it should be.
Risch explains, "we want to get government as far away from this thing as we can and let you handle your healthcare in a free market system, where there is competition and where you can make the decisions."
The Senator also says that the Republican party wants to focus on cost control and that the bill was strictly a Democratic vote.
