Open Letter: Conservatives Remind Congress – Repeal Obamacare Now

CONSERVATIVES REMIND CONGRESS – REPEAL OBAMACARE NOW June 20, 2018 Washington, DC For nearly a decade, Democrats in Congress have successfully blocked every effort by Republicans to keep the promise they made to voters of fully repealing Obamacare. Meanwhile, the law continues to hurt Americans in countless ways across the country. Average premiums for individual health insurance have risen to $476 dollars a month, reflecting a 105 percent increase.[i] The average deductible for Silver level plans has increased to nearly $8,000 for families.[ii] The number of small firms offering health benefits to their workers has dropped 24 percent between 2012...

Open Letter From Conservative Leaders: Senators – Fund the Troops First

SENATORS – FUND THE TROOPS FIRST   June 11, 2018 Washington, DC Conservatives want the Senate to work fulltime and overtime starting now until their work is done. Working Americans do this, or they don’t get paid. Eliminating paid leave in August is nice but insufficient. As we have outlined in previous memos, conservatives now call on the Senate’s leadership to use this critical time to pass all of their appropriations bills, confirm President Trump’s nominees, and work to implement a strong conservative agenda.

Open Letter From Conservative Leaders: Make Congress Work Again

MAKE CONGRESS WORK AGAIN   April 27, 2018 Washington, DC After Congress passed, and the president signed, a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, President Trump made a very clear statement. “I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not going to do it again. Nobody read it. It’s only hours old.” Trump’s statement is reflective of a dysfunctional Congress that spends too much, writes bills in secret while disallowing debate and amendments, and lurches from crisis to crisis while prioritizing congressional recesses over accomplishing any substantive policy goals. The Senate, in particular, has also failed to use...
