FILE - In this Friday, Jan. 22, 2010 file photo, House Financial Services Committee member Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, is seen on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Rep. Neugebauer, who chaired a hearing Tuesday Nov. 19, 2013 of the Financial Services Committee’s housing and insurance subcommittee. “We do know that there are some people out there who are going to experience higher premiums. But, you know, that was the purpose.” (AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais, file) less
