URGENT: Health Care Compact in danger – need calls ASAP

Please read this message and take Action!!

Texas Public Policy Foundation

As hard as it may be to believe, the Health Care Compact – our best chance to protect Texans from ObamaCare – is in danger.

Because the Health Care Compact language failed to pass the Senate in House Bill 5, it has been added as an amendment to Senate Bill 8, a bill authored by Sen. Jane Nelson and one of Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s top priorities. 
Please generate as many calls as you can – as quickly as you can – to the following people:

Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst               (512) 463-0001

Sen. Jane Nelson                             (512) 463-0112

Your local Republican senator

Message:  We urge you to promptly call up Senate Bill 8 and concur with the House amendments, in particular the Health Care Compact language.  This is a Texas idea for pushing back against ObamaCare and protecting our health care against an overreaching federal government.  Georgia and Oklahoma have already signed the Compact and it would be a national embarrassment if a Texas Legislature with huge Republican majorities can’t get this done.

Rep. Lois Kolkhorst                          (512) 463-0600

Message:  Thank you for your leadership on the Health Care Compact and working to protect Texans from ObamaCare.  If the Senate requests a conference committee on Senate Bill 8, please hold firm on keeping the Health Care Compact language.

Thank you for anything you can do to activate the troops!

    Within the last hour, I have met with Sen. Jane Nelson’s chief of staff, who assured me personally that the senator would move to concur with the House amendments to Senate Bill 8, which would send the Health Care Compact to Gov. Perry’s desk for signature. Obviously, this is great news.

    That being said, it would still be helpful for the officeholders below to receive positive reinforcement so that they know you care deeply about this issue and are paying attention to whether it advances this weekend. Thank you!
