U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) joined with U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) in proposing an amendment to the Senate Democrat budget proposal that would defund the President's health care law:
"Unless we defund this law, Obamacare will continue to drive up insurance premiums, cause employers to drop coverage, and stifle small business growth across Texas.
"Rather than adding trillions of dollars to the national debt and inserting Washington bureaucrats into personal health decisions, Obamacare should be replaced with reforms that expand access and lower costs for consumers."
Sen. Cornyn has voted to repeal the health care law several times, and has led the charge to repeal the bill's Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB), a Medicare-rationing board of unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats, as well as the 3.8 percent surtax on investment income that went into effect in January.
