Texas House and Senate Members Letter to Feds: Repeal Obamacare and Allow States to Effect Replacement Solutions

Sixty-five Texas Legislators sign letter supporting State’s Constitutional right to solve health insurance question

AUSTIN, TX – On Friday, March 17, 65 members of the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC) signed the attached letter. While the letter speaks for itself, the following comments were made with its release:

TCC President, Representative James Frank (HD-69): “I am proud to stand as one of 65 members of the Texas Legislature and send this letter to our Congressional Delegation and President Trump. Obamacare has caused insurance premiums to historic highs, leaving less revenue in the Texas budget for priorities such as schools, roads and property tax relief. It has also forced Texans to make impossible choices with their household budgets in order to absorbed these huge spikes. This is why I signed the letter calling for its full repeal.”

TCC Vice President, Representative Jason Isaac (HD-45): “If the past seven years have shown us anything, it’s that top-down, one-size-fits-none government mandates don’t work for our health care system. It’s long past time to do away with Obamacare, and I join TCC’s members in looking forward to health care reform that truly reduces costs for hard-working Texans and returns power to the states.”

Representative Dustin Burrows (HD-83): “Conservatives campaign on the need to decentralize Federal power to the States and limited government; and, today is the opportunity for that to happen. I signed this letter because I believe that the solutions are best left up to the States; and, we welcome the opportunity and responsibility to implement market-based reforms.”
