    I am extremely leery of any legislative actions purposed by Sen. Ben Sasse due to his ties to the so-called “Club for Growth”. Its tag line line is Free-Market solutions to create jobs and unleash economic growth. It is a conservative right wing group that praises Trump for his latest Tax Plan, supports DeVos education efforts, and is pushing hard for a full repeal of Obama care. Ben Sasse’s “scorecard” indicates he is at the top of the “alignment” ladder with a near perfect score of 💯. Please friends beware of any of this man’s legislative actions. His term doesn’t expire until 2021, so there is still a long haul left.
