Although it is highly unlikely that the Affordable Care Act will be overturned in the halls of Congress, that does not mean the fight is over, Bobby Bramlett, Big "I" chairman told a crowd of nearly 1,000 independent agents in Washington on Friday.

Agents are feeling the negative effects of the ACA every day, said Bramlett, speaking at the Big “I” Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America legislative conference. “But as much as we wish we could change it, PPACA is the law of the land and it [has] moved from the legislative to the regulatory phrase,” he said. “While we fight to protect the agent’s role in health delivery. [And it’s] no longer debated in the halls of Congress that doesn’t mean there aren’t important issues on the table as the table as the law is implemented.”
