Member Briefing

This week, House Republicans released their health care bill to replace Obamacare. Unfortunately, it falls far short of addressing the key issues with Obamacare. Wednesday, I met with President Donald Trump to share the conservative plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. I made clear conservatives have serious concerns about the current bill, but that we are ready to work with the White House to repeal Obamacare, lower costs, and increase choice in health care.  My colleague Ed Haislmaier has more on this bill below.

Also, Donald Trump's revised executive order on immigration was released this week. Heritage expert Hans von Spakovsky explains why this order is constitutional. You can read his full analysis in the second article.

Lastly, I wanted to share one specific way your conservative message is being heard. The videos that Heritage and The Daily Signal are producing have been reaching millions of people with the conservative story. I'm including the top three videos from the last month below. I encourage you to watch them and check out the other videos we have produced.

As always, I encourage you to comment on the stories below. Your feedback is very helpful to me.

Proposed health care bill ‘missed the mark’

by Steven Lawrence

This week House Republicans released their health care bill to replace Obamacare. It’s terrible.

Heritage health care expert, Ed Haislmaier, explains why the proposed bill does not fix the failings of Obamacare.

The key problem with the draft House health care bill is that it fails to correct the features of Obamacare that drove up health insurance costs. Instead, it mainly tweaks Obamacare’s financing and subsidy structure.

Basically, the bill focuses on protecting those who gained subsidized coverage through the law’s exchange subsidies and Medicaid expansion, while failing to correct Obamacare’s misguided insurance regulations that drove up premiums for Americans buying coverage without government subsidies.

That is both a policy problem and a political problem.

Why do you think House leadership proposed a bill like this?

 
Donald Trump’s revised Immigration ban is constitutional: Here’s why


by Steven Lawrence

Heritage’s Hans von Spakovsky explains why Donald Trump’s revised executive order is not only legal but makes common sense.

President Donald Trump’s revised executive order restricting travel from terrorist safe havens is just as constitutional and legal as his original order, despite what some courts such as the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said about the original order.

But the revisions he has made, which clarify that the executive order does not apply to any foreigners who already hold visas to enter the U.S., will make it tougher for activist judges to justify any injunction orders they might be inclined to issue against it. Yet there is little doubt that progressive groups will seek such orders.

 

Do you agree with Trump’s revised executive order?
