Chairman Of The House Ways & Means Committee Kevin Brady: I Hope The Senate Stays Close To The House’s Version Of Healthcare Reform

Audio clip:

"Here is the good news, if they stay somewhat close to it, we can dramatically slow the growth of Medicaid, that's an $880 billion dollar savings but more importantly the first true reform of the fastest growing entitlement, the first true reform since it was established so I hope they stay close there to what we developed. The whole bill has 100 plus billion in savings because we get rid of all those tax increases, get rid of the mandates, get rid of the subsidies so that could help us get to a balanced budget as well. So I am hopeful the senate, they need to work to improve it, make it better at every point but those savings we created we are going to need."

----Kevin Brady on his hope the Senate's version of healthcare reform is close to the House's version

Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee, spoke with Brian Kilmeade about how tax reform will grow our economy and improve the lives of workers, families and job creators to help deliver a balanced budget over the next 10 years. Brady went on to talk about how the Democrats are trying to overturn the elections with their calls for impeachment and dispel any notion the GOP is divided over President Trump.

Listen here:

Brady on democrats trying to overturn the election

(Kilmeade) Do you think Democrats are looking to overturn the election with their attacks on the White House?

(BRADY) You know I do, I do. The quick calls for impeachment we have seen going on, the attacks daily on President Trump and his administration are just relentless and yeah, I think they are trying to do through the media in these attacks.

Brady on talk republicans are abandoning President Trump and the best way for the GOP to keep their majority in congress

(BRADY) No, I don't believe that. I know the House best because this is where I serve and I don't see that at all. In fact, our belief is the best way to keep our majority and change the direction of the country is to deliver on our promises with this President on healthcare, on tax reform, on regulation on security. Let's just do what we said we would do.
