Senator Cornyn on American Health Care Act

Cornyn: American Health Care Act Makes Good on a Promise

 ‘By responsibly reforming Medicaid, the states and the federal government will benefit, all while helping Medicaid work for the most vulnerable in our country and putting us on a path to fiscal sustainability.’

 ‘The American Health Care Act is an answer to a promise that we made, and we have made repetitively in the last three elections since Obamacare became the law of the land, and I believe it’s imperative that we keep our promise.’

 ‘In the end we have a binary choice. We can either keep the status quo, which is in meltdown, which is Obamacare, or we can pass legislation which offers more choices at affordable prices to the American people.’

WASHINGTON – On March 7 on the Senate floor, U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) discussed the American Health Care Act. Excerpts of Sen. Cornyn’s remarks are below, and video of his remarks can be found here.

“The bill, known as the American Health Care Act, represents the next step forward in keeping our promise to repeal and replace Obamacare, which continues to fail Texans and folks all across the country.”

“Some of our colleagues across the aisle who are relishing the fact that Republicans, the majority, are now taking this step to keep our commitment to repeal and replace Obamacare, they’re sitting back and hoping that we fail. But the fact of the matter is, we would be having this debate no matter who won the presidency last November the 8th because Obamacare is in a meltdown mode.”

 “I believe actually the American Health Care Act is the most significant entitlement reform in decades, and that’s something we should all applaud. Putting Medicaid on a more sustainable path: not continuing to spend money that we don’t have and rack up annual deficits, and add to our national debt.”

 “By responsibly reforming Medicaid, the states and the federal government will benefit, all while helping Medicaid work for the most vulnerable in our country and putting us on a path to fiscal sustainability.”

 

The American Health Care Act is an answer to a promise that we made, and we have made repetitively in the last three elections since Obamacare became the law of the land, and I believe it’s imperative that we keep our promise.”

 

“There [are] a lot of different ideas that people have, and I agree, and that’s a good thing, but in the end we have a binary choice. We can either keep the status quo, which is in meltdown, which is Obamacare, or we can pass legislation which offers more choices at affordable prices to the American people.”
