House Freedom Caucus Announces Support for House AHCA Bill with MacArthur Amendment


Washington, D.C. The House Freedom Caucus released the following statement on the American Health Care Act:

“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.

  1. Not knowing what’s in it (we have to pass it, to see what’s in it) I’m disappointed that this might be worth accepting for the time being. I would have liked to go to war against obamacare and won in a single battle. Maybe that can’t be done. President Trump continues to have to fight the libs, the media, and the rinos. He is still winning, I think.

  2. As a system, Obamacare is kinda like brain cancer. Once it has become fully entrenched, it is very difficult to totally remove without killing the organism to which it is attached. This is not to say it can’t be done, but delicate surgery will doubtless be required.

  3. Vietvet,

    A 100 TU’s. Shoot the cancer with Round Up until it dies on its own without killing the patient. And then get on to tax reform. Tic Toc, we need to keep the momentum up on the economy.

  4. actually you said we had to wait until 2018 when the first bill didn’t pass?????? and you said it was the Ryan Bill or nothing????? I remember you calling us dumb????
    Seems to me the Freedom Caucus made the bill much better damn those conservatives. Trump should have came to the Freedom Caucus first not freek’n Ryan!!!!
    Begin the name calling.

  5. And another correction the democrats passed the original bill in the senate. The original bill had to do with the VA not healthcare Harry Reid
    gutted the bill and put in Obamacare. That’s the truth!
    Sorry I had to correct you just me being a dumb dumb

  6. Fast forward to December 2009, immediately before the ur-Tea Party state of Massachusetts expressed the nation’s displeasure with Obamacare by electing a Republican to the Senate. That’s when the Senate took a bill giving benefits to members of the military who were first-time homebuyers and, as George Will put it recently, “‘amended’ this bill by obliterating it.” Harry Reid renamed it and replaced its entire contents with the ACA.
    wait I was told the original bill had everything to do with healthcare??? Apology please Mr.Tucker

  7. The RINOs refuse to repeal this abomination simply because it offers too many opportunities to steal, extort, and coerce. The Ryan “republicans” know advantage when they smell it, and ObolaCare is ALL advantage to the Totalitarian MegaState.
    There is no upside for America, or the Americans, but that is of no consequence to the RINOs, as they believe the Americans have no place to turn.

    Sheep led to the shearing barn rarely do more than bleat.
    Those led to slaughter convince themselves that they’re being led to the shearing barn.
