FreedomWorks Activists Go Door to Door in the House and Senate

After FreedomWorks activists braved the cold to join Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) and Dave Brat (R-Va.) for a rally to repeal Obamacare, they split up into groups and visited members of the House and Senate to encourage some in the fight and to pressure others who are caving.

FreedomWorks activists visited dozens of offices, meeting with their senators and representatives to urge them to repeal Obamacare quickly and completely. They stressed key policy changes needed to get conservatives on board with leadership’s bill:

  • Lessen the fiscal impact of the tax credit by making it nonrefundable or partially refundable,
  • Immediately freeze Medicaid expansion enrollment and add work requirements to the program,
  • Repeal ObamaCare’s essential health benefits mandates, and
  • Strike the coercive continuous coverage language.

“This is the kind of hand-to-hand combat that is necessary when our activists have leverage: a majority in the House, a majority in the Senate, and a Republican president,” FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon said.
