Liberals are going to start regret celebrating the failure of the initial Obamacare repeal.
Because a new Obamacare repeal/replace plan has been approved by the ultra-conservative House Freedom Caucus, which prevented the first healthcare bill from going through.
This caucus was the last threshold to taking down the “Affordable Care Act” — now Obamacare is about to be history.
Washington Examiner reports:
All but one or two of the approximately three dozen members of the House Freedom Caucus are now on board with the revised bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, and conservatives hope this could help provide enough support to pass the measure this week.
“My understandings is all but two Freedom Caucus members are yesses,” a GOP aide told the Washington Examiner.
Under intense pressure from President Trump and White House officials, Republican leaders are trying to scrape together the 217 GOP votes needed to pass a bill to repeal and replace the law.
And this new endorsement by a overwhelming majority of the HFC will put them over the top, ultimately finishing off Obama’s “Affordable Care Act.”
This new legislation would create high risk pools for sick consumers and would ensure coverage for those with pre-existing conditions, although they could be charged more if they allow coverage to lapse for more than two months.
“The fact that it addresses pre-existing conditions in three different ways is nothing short of not only keeping our campaign promise, but doing so in a variety of ways that gives us plenty to remind people we are keeping our campaign promises,” Meadows said.
