Cruz Leads Senate Conservative Response to Healthcare Bill: More Freedom

Call them the Four Republican Horsemen of the Healthcare Apocalypse – Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Ron Johnson – have issued a statement on the newly revealed Senate healthcare bill, stating that they are not ready to support it:

Currently, for a variety of reasons, we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor. There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current health care system, but it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their health care costs.
