Texas leads the nation with nearly a quarter of its population lacking sufficient health insurance coverage. While the Republican-dominated Texas Legislature refuses to expand healthcare coverage for purely political reasons, despite available funding, we will has fight to expand coverage and create jobs for Texans.
Texas Victory Project believes it is time for leaders to put people over politics and expand health insurance coverage to over 1 million hard-working Texans.
We will work with legislature for Medicaid expansion for Texans that will have a projected income revenue of $90 billion back to our state that will create jobs and alleviate tax burdens on taxpayers and local governments.
Our second priority will be working with Congress to tackle the ongoing inflation of prescription drugs. The recklessness of Congress to regulate big pharmaceutical companies, reduce prescription medication cost, and failure to protect the American consumer, should be a bipartisan issue that unites both liberal and conservative legislatures. With a total lobbying power of over $57,000,000 dollars spent in the 2015-2016 cycle, we saw both Democrats and Republicans Senators this January protect the hands that feeds them and turn down Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) and Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) amendment to end the high prices of prescription medication.
We will support candidates who will fight for working families and ensure Medicaid and Medicare are protected, more people covered at a lower cost, and protect American consumers from big pharmaceuticals companies.
