Health Care repeal is going to cost people billions, add trillions to the debt, increase liabilities for the state, reduce the amount of people with health insurance, decrease revenues for large cap companies traded on international markets, create unfunded mandates for the state and people don't approve of the repeal.

So, Republicans in DC are pushing hard to pass a symbolic, partisan bill and Texas Republicans are doing everything to scare up support for their allies on the Hill. CPPP has the facts.

This week, the U.S. House Representatives is expected to take up the vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Meanwhile, here in Texas, we are working hard to implement the changes required to ensure everyone in the state has access to affordable health care.

On January 13, CPPP Executive Director Scott McCown was invited by the Texas Public Policy Foundation to debate Ted Cruz, former Solicitor General of Texas, on federalism and the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.  Scott explained why conservatives should support the Act and the advantages for Texas.

  1. Obviously
    without the Senate repeal will not happen. However debate will be more open.  The fact that we are taking 10 years of taxes/fines to pay for six years of healtcare to “make it pay for itself” will make people think. . . Even those who weren't thinking during the original debate.  

  2. Right… Profit
    That is why the insurance providers support the Health Care Reform package. It gave them more customers than ever before. That is why their stock prices are soaring and services are becoming static for the first time in 21 years.

    Premiums are an upward swing because the full activation of the legislation doesn't hit until 2014… not because the bill passed.  

  3. And in 2014?
    You think in 2014 the insurers are going to drop their rates? Just because they should? They don't have to.

    And they won't. And the “public option” that isn't really a “public option” won't really be much less expensive. The “pools” will simply offer the coverage for a little less. But most likely with large deductibles. And in the end, no one will really save anything. And some will be forced to pay the premiums because it's cheaper than the fines and end up with no options at all. They will have insurance they can't afford to use. And be excluded from accessing the public health care system.
