From David Guenthner
As hard as it may be to believe, the Health Care Compact – our best chance to protect Texans from ObamaCare – is in danger.
Because the Health Care Compact language failed to pass the Senate in House Bill 5, it has been added as an amendment to Senate Bill 8, a bill authored by Sen. Jane Nelson and one of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s top priorities.
Please generate as many calls as you can – as quickly as you can – to the following people:
Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst (512) 463-0001
Sen. Jane Nelson (512) 463-0112
Your local Republican senator
Message: We urge you to promptly call up Senate Bill 8 and concur with the House amendments, in particular the Health Care Compact language. This is a Texas idea for pushing back against ObamaCare and protecting our health care against an overreaching federal government. Georgia and Oklahoma have already signed the Compact and it would be a national embarrassment if a Texas Legislature with huge Republican majorities can’t get this done.
Rep. Lois Kolkhorst (512) 463-0600
Message: Thank you for your leadership on the Health Care Compact and working to protect Texans from ObamaCare. If the Senate requests a conference committee on Senate Bill 8, please hold firm on keeping the Health Care Compact language.
Thank you for anything you can do to activate the troops!
