SALT LAKE CITY -- Members of Utah's congressional delegation were quick to respond after President Barack Obama held a press conference, announcing he wants to allow people to keep old health plans that don't meet standards set by the Affordable Care Act.

Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz appeared on Fox News within twenty minutes of the President's Press Conference.

"I represent 800,000 people. We think we have some ideas to contribute, Mr. President," said Chaffetz, suggesting the president was fixing a law that should be scrapped and replaced.

Senator Orrin Hatch released a statement within the same hour, saying the President was making another promise doomed to failure.
