The Affordable Care Act, nicknamed Obamacare, went into effect in 2014 and has long been one of the nation's most controversial issues.
Tuesday night a republican senate hopeful sat down with Kearney residents and was grilled on the subject.
Ben Sasse, the current president of Midland University, said he is against the installation of Obamacare for Nebraskans. The sit down wasn't just about his stance on the Affordable Care Act; Sasse explained how he would fix the system if elected to the senate.
Kearney Mayor Stan Clouse turned out to see what Sasse had to say.
"We're here to learn, learn a lot about the candidates about what their beliefs are how strongly their issues affect us at the local level, I think it's important we understand and know about our candidate," said Clouse.
Sasse came prepared for questions on the topic and said he has a game plan if he earns a seat in the United States Senate.
"It's the main issue we're hearing about from Nebraska, it's the biggest problem what's wrong with this government expansion we see right now they promised things they can't deliver," Sasse said.
Sasse will head to Columbus and Norfolk later this week to share his views on the issue.
