I’m filling in this week on The Michael Koolidge Show and took the opportunity to connect with an old friend, Rep. Pete Sessions of Texas. Sessions also serves as part of the leadership team in the House as Rules Committee Chairman.
I struck up a friendship with the Congressman while he was Chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee and in the midst of helping to engineer the big GOP wave election of 2010. A part of that effort was in Illinois’ 17th Congressional District, where Bobby Schilling would go on to victory. Sessions joined the show often and just hasn’t stopped since. He always does well enough to be invited back.
This time we talked about how the House leadership team plans to work with President Trump. Specifically, we discussed the path forward on health care reform. Last May, Sessions introduced the only bicameral piece of legislation to overhaul Obamacare with Senator Bill Cassidy. It’s called The World’s Greatest Healthcare Plan. Really, it is. You can read about it here.
During the interview we also touched on tax reform and how the GOP can avoid the electoral wipeout that greeted Democrats after they pushed forward a number of liberal proposals from 2008-2010.
