It is a real honor to stand up for Texas in Washington, D.C. It is an even greater privilege to meet with Texans across the Lone Star State and hear first-hand how the federal government is harming economic growth and how we can let the private sector thrive. Throughout the past week, I've visited with thousands of Texans, taken to the airwaves to defend our Second Amendment rights, and stood with Texas leaders in opposition to Obamacare's Medicaid expansion. I hope you'll read this update below and pass it on to your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
All the best,
OPPOSING MEDICAID EXPANSION
On Monday, Sen. Cruz joined Gov. Rick Perry, Sen. John Cornyn, and other Texas leaders for a roundtable discussion and press conference to discuss the devastating impact Medicaid expansion would have on Texas and why it is important that Texas hold strong against it. To find out more, watch the video of the press conference here.
DEFENDING THE SECOND AMENDMENT
Last week, Sen. Cruz joined Glenn Beck on the radio to talk about his letter pledging to use any procedural means necessary to ensure Congress does not pass legislation that would prohibit Americans' Second Amendment rights.
