As a taxpayer and safeguard of the state’s finances, I appreciate the work Whip Scalise and US Senator Cassidy are doing to Stop the health insurance tax (HIT).

This HIT tax can add nearly $500 per worker to the annual premium, an amount sufficient to have large-scale effects within any company, including slowdowns in hiring. From a broader perspective, I am disturbed by the effect of the HIT tax on my constituents and the local economy. The Louisiana small business community is unanimous in its opposition to the HIT tax because of the negative consequences for their companies. Working families often feel the brunt of the impacts, and we all appreciate the leadership Whip Scalise and US Senator Cassidy have shown in pushing back against these taxes.

The HIT Tax impacts everyone. HIT tax hurts low- and fixed-income residents who rely on Medicare Advantage, because their costs also increase with the tax. This group is probably the least able to absorb price hikes in the hundreds of dollars, and we should seriously consider the ethics of adding to their health care costs.

We should all be thankful that Whip Scalise and US Senator Cassidy are leading the charge to extend the current moratorium on the health insurance tax that is safeguarding businesses, working families, and seniors. Louisianans deserve similar protections in 2020 and beyond.

Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana recently went on Fox Business to discuss his upcoming bill that would allow the President to use monies seized from Mexican drug cartel activities to fund the border wall.

Cassidy had the following to say on Fox News:

"It's become an article of faith among Pelosi and her kind of inner circle that they cannot give Trump a victory, even if it means securing our southern border. ... Now, that's a sorry state of affairs, but I'm hoping we can push through that."

More information regarding Cassidy’s bill and his statements regarding Pelosi can be found here.

CASSIDY: Use Mexican Cartel Money to Build Wall

Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana has suggested using asset forfeiture fund money received during enforcement on Mexican cartel activities within the United States.

"The nice thing about this is Congress does not appropriate money in the asset forfeiture fund. It's one the Executive Branch controls itself, so he could use this money without congressional approval. So it's a way forward even if Miss Pelosi has decided she is not as interested in securing the southern border.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has described President Trump's effort to build a border wall as an obsession, and a waste of billions of taxpayer dollars. 

Both sides have vowed to not back down. 

In the words on Sen. Cassidy, ""It's the Mexican cartels paying for the wall, and that would be such sweet justice.”

Alethea Torrellas Shapiro had been using her children regularly to harass senators, such as Sen. Bill Cassidy, on Capitol Hill. According to the Daily Caller, Shapiro is “an activist who calls extremist feminist activist Linda Sarsour her hero and regularly goes on profanity-laced tirades against GOP senators like Chuck Grassley.”

As captured in the below video, another liberal is in the face of a conservative member of the US Senate, this time our own, Sen. Bill Cassidy.

However, rather than cowering like Jeff Flake did, in the video below, Sen. Cassidy bravely defended his decision to support Kavanaugh and defended the judge’s good name, which has been smeared throughout this process by the Democrats.

"Tolerant" Liberals Disrupt Prayer During Cassidy Town Hall Meeting

In a town hall meeting earlier this week, hosted by Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, a prayer from the Chaplain of the Louisiana Legislature was disrupted by agitators, who were there purely to wreak havoc on a gathering of concerned citizens. The below video shows them screaming "separation of church and state" and "pray on your own time". 

Tell me again about that tolerance the left spouts. Guess Michelle Obama's "when they go low, we go high" doesn't apply here.
