Freedom Caucus Reveals What They Think Of Second Obamacare Repeal Attempt — Are You With Them?

After the horrendous upset over Ryan’s attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare, it left many wonder what the future would hold for the bill.

Today, we received some, hopefully, good news.

The conservative Freedom Caucus of the House of Representatives announced they are endorsing the latest bill after New Jersey Republican Tom MacArthur introduced substantive changes, according to Breitbart.

The Freedom Caucus was one of the key voices against the first attempt introduced by House Speaker Paul Ryan. They were one of the main reasons Ryan pulled the bill from consideration.

Since the failure, Republicans haven’t been sitting around. They have been negotiating amendments to make the bill fit the concerns of conservatives.

Days ago House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Breitbart News that he expected an Obamacare repeal bill to pass by the end of May, and now the group has announced its support of the newest measure.


The group said in a press release:

Over the past couple of months, House conservatives have worked tirelessly to improve the American Health Care Act (AHCA) to make it better for the American people. Due to improvements to the AHCA and the addition of Rep. Tom MacArthur’s proposed amendment, the House Freedom Caucus has taken an official position in support of the current proposal.

The MacArthur amendment will grant states the ability to repeal cost driving aspects of Obamacare left in place under the original AHCA. While the revised version still does not fully repeal Obamacare, we are prepared to support it to keep our promise to the American people to lower healthcare costs. We look forward to working with our Senate colleagues to improve the bill. Our work will continue until we fully repeal Obamacare.

No surprise here, the liberals are still vowing to oppose any and all moves to change Obamacare (unless it benefits them).

Some things never change.
