Lying About Election Reform
What to know: Texas House Democrats say election reform bills are really voter suppression.
The TPPF take: Texans support the election integrity reforms in Senate Bill 1.
“Let’s be clear—nothing in Senate Bill 1 curtails access to voting in any way, shape or form,” says TPPF’s Chad Ennis. “In fact, the bill would improve access, protect voters’ rights, add transparency and accountability in the voting process, and deter fraud.”

Critical Race Theory
What to know: Oklahoma has become the latest state to ban the teaching of critical race theory.
The TPPF take: Laws are great, but it will take vigilant parents to ensure that critical race theory doesn’t creep back into classrooms.
“The short-term solution to combat this ideology is to advocate for transparency,” says TPPF’s Syd Lucas. “Get involved in your school board, and ultimately take legal action if necessary. The long-term solution to fighting CRT begins with parents fighting for the right to choose the best education for their children.”

No Mystery Here
What to know: Enrollment numbers for the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are disappointing.
The TPPF take: Millions of Americans qualify for subsidies—but still don’t enroll.
“Extending the enrollment period into August and spending a combined $110 million into marketing and outreach midway through demonstrates both a frenzied approach and a lack of confidence on the part of the government in attempting to enroll as many people as possible,” says TPPF’s David Balat.
