Sen. Cruz Discusses Obamacare Repeal and Fundamental Tax Reform in New Braunfels and San Antonio
‘I AM FIGHTING FOR POLICIES THAT WILL EXPAND OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERY TEXAN'

Yesterday I toured Sysco Central Texas, Inc. in New Braunfels, where I held a town hall with employees. Following my town hall, I delivered remarks at the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Later in the day, I visited Division Laundry & Cleaners, also in San Antonio, where I discussed the need to roll back unnecessary and burdensome federal regulations so that small businesses can grow, innovate and thrive.
During my visit at Sysco Central Texas, Inc., I discussed my efforts to expand opportunity and create good-paying jobs for hardworking Texans across the Lone Star State.
When I travel the state of Texas, from the Panhandle to the Rio Grande, Texans care about jobs and seeing their wages rising. And the way we do that, the way we see wages rise and jobs and economic growth expanding, is by reducing the burden of federal regulations on businesses, and reforming the tax code. I am spending every waking moment in the Senate fighting for policies that will expand opportunity for every Texan.
I also delivered remarks at a luncheon with the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, discussing my priorities for Texans, including repealing and replacing Obamacare, and lowering health insurance premiums.
We have to deliver on our promise to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare is the biggest job killer in this country. As I tour the state of Texas, meeting with small businesses and I do that over and over and over again, listening to small businesses over and over again, Obamacare comes back as the single biggest barrier to small businesses growing.
