FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs Jason Pye released the following statement following the inclusion of the conservative language from Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah):
“The inclusion of this language is a step in the right direction. We are especially encouraged by the inclusion of the language allowing HSAs to be used to pay for premiums, a policy FreedomWorks has been advocating.
“We are disappointed that the repeal of the ObamaCare taxes does not live up to the 2015 reconciliation bill due to Republican frauds in the Senate who are defending ObamaCare. Sens. Lee and Cruz have done a fantastic job in fighting for as much as they could get given the hypocrisy from many Republican senators.”
The FreedomWorks legislative team is continuing to analyze the latest language and will have more comments at a later time.
