Tea Party Patriots Signals Support for Cruz-Lee Amendment to Senate Health Care Bill
Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots President and co-founder Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement today regarding the amendment to the Senate health care bill offered by Senators Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Mike Lee (R-UT).
“Tea Party Patriots and our nationwide network of grassroots supporters have been encouraging Senate Republicans to keep their promises and pass a bill that fully repeals Obamacare and ensures the American people have more choices for health care at much lower costs. While we have serious concerns with the initial draft of the Senate health care bill, we believe the amendment proposed by Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee offers the possibility of removing several of the most restrictive regulations in Obamacare that rob people of health care choices and drive insurance costs higher and higher. If the Senate adopts the Cruz-Lee Amendment to the health care bill, Tea Party Patriots and our supporters will be more likely to support the bill for passage as the next step in the process to repeal ObamaCare.”
