Senator Bill Cassidy is calling for state governors to join the healthcare debate.
Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press, the Louisiana Republican says he's called both Republican and Democratic governors for feedback.
Cassidy touted an alternative "Patient Freedom Act," which is a proposed alternative healthcare option for states that Cassidy backs along with Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine.
On Friday during a Cassidy town hall event in Baton Rouge, several citizens expressed their unease with the congressional Republican-led healthcare measure.
