Senate Republicans shared the current version of their proposed health care bill today. They are expected to vote on it next week, giving the Senate time to review the 142 page document. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) told reporters he said no to the current version.
Chris Salcedo shared some of the senator’s points on “The Chris Salcedo Show” today. Cruz said the bill didn’t do enough to lower premiums, but there are “a number of common sense reforms” that should be included in future drafts.
He touted his Consumer Freedom Agreement, which would allow insurance companies who offer a plan consistent with Title I mandates in a state to sell any other policy consumers desire. This is supposed to immediately lower costs.
This solution was devised in conversations with insurance companies, which did not sit well with Chris, who believes the industry betrayed the American people by participating in Obamacare.
