It was good to spend some time with Senator Ted Cruz at the Texas Grassroots Leadership Round Table yesterday. Here are some of the takeaways:
Current House Healthcare bill:
- Does not drive down insurance premium costs.
- It continues to expand Medicaid.
- It expands tax credits to all regardless of insurance coverage.
- Repeal all 12 obamacare mandates.
- Allow the sale of insurance across state lines.
- Allow the formation of associations to pool insurance coverage.
- Allow the formation of heath savings accounts.
- Medical insurance tort reform.
- Repeal Obamacare
- Significant tax reform
- Confirm Judge Gorsuch to the Supreme Court
- Significant regulation reform
Ted is intensely working behind the scenes with the House and the President. Staying out of the press as much as is possible. He is doing God’s work but needs your support, encouragement and prayers. Send him words of encouragement to strengthen his resolve and increase his effectiveness Pray for his wisdom as he works through this very difficult situation. His success will be America’s success.
