We Say: Do you need a little inspiration to know the key points to put in a ‘repeal Obamacare’ letter to President Trump? Here you go.
You can send the whole thing. Grassroots America won’t mind at all. Or do a little cut and paste to really personalize it. Cool huh?
Dear Mr. President:
For seven long years, we have been suffering from the rising costs of Obamacare.
To our dismay, the “repeal and replace” plan put forward by U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan did nothing to address the core regulatory infrastructure of Obamacare, which means that American families would still see health care costs continue to rise until at least 2026. This is unacceptable.
Grassroots conservatives worked tirelessly to give Republicans the House, the Senate, and you, Sir, the Presidency. They did so based upon several promises – a major promise being the full repeal of Obamacare. AHCA doesn’t fulfill that promise.
In opposing the AHCA, the House Freedom Caucus was doing what their supporters and constituents hired them at the ballot box to do – to fully repeal Obamacare, get the federal government out of our health care, and put us on a path to a more affordable, free market-based, patient-centered health care system.
With a bad “take it or leave it” bill on the table, the Freedom Caucus rightly believed they had a responsibility to protect both the GOP and the Trump Administration from the political fallout that would surely come in 2018 and 2020 when angry voters realized their healthcare costs did not go down and health care access did not improve. The Freedom Caucus had the promises they made back home and the long-term good of the American people on their minds and in their hearts when they opposed the AHCA.
This is what we sent those members of Congress to D.C. to do.
Mr. President, the Freedom Caucus is not the problem – the D.C. Swamp from whence this “retain and reform” bill came from – is the problem.
You, the Freedom Caucus, and Senate conservatives are the most dedicated to draining the DC Swamp. For this reason, we urge you to work with, and ally with, the House Freedom Caucus, not actively attack it, and undermine it. They and Senate conservatives are speaking for so many of us who labor in the constitutional conservative trenches every day.
We, the House Freedom Caucus, and Senate conservatives, are your greatest allies should you sincerely aim to end the decades of Big Government cronyism in D.C.
Mr. President, Texas grassroots conservatives are praying for your success as you work to rebuild our nation. Let’s do it together.
Executive Director, Grassroots America
