Standing up for conservative principles sometimes requires sacrificing titles in order to promote the greater good. I have never sought any position for the mere acquisition of power, and have a career of not wilting in the face of political pressure, no matter where it comes from.
Throughout my time in the Senate, I have worked tirelessly to fight Obamacare, and most recently that battle has been waged on the issue of whether to expand Obamacare in Kansas. Today, due to my efforts to oppose the expansion of Medicaid in Kansas, I was removed by Senate President Susan Wagle as Chair of the Public Health and Welfare Committee.
Below, please find my official statement on this matter. Some of you might ask what you can do about it. If you'd like to express your feelings on the matter, you can contact the Senate President at Susan.Wagle@senate.ks.gov.
