Delivering On Our Promise

In: The Lonestar Weekly   Posted 01/17/2017

This week, Senate Republicans took the first step towards delivering on our promise to repeal Obamacare. Both House and Senate Republicans have been fighting for years to reach this point, and now real change is possible with a President in office who understands that Texans and the American people deserve health care coverage at a price they can actually afford.
Now that we have passed the necessary tools to repeal this disastrous law, we will move forward with a step-by-step replacement plan, ensuring no one slips through the cracks during the transition period. What we won’t do is pass one massive bill, written in secret and jammed through before anyone has the chance to read it.
President Obama promised that if you like your coverage, you can keep your coverage, and that if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. And he claimed the average family of four would see their premiums go down by thousands of dollars. None of that happened. What has held true is the promise we made to repeal this harmful legislation, and we are on our way to doing just that.
