What the Freedom Caucus stands for

One Virginia Congressman is ready to give health care reform another shot after House leaders failed to get enough support for an Obamacare replacement bill.

Meadows told USA Today he planned to deliver a plan that kept language requiring insurers to cover pre-existing conditions.

U.S. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, endorsed Connelly in the special election to fill South Carolina's 5th District congressional seat. But we can be sure that whatever happens, it's going to be close.

Conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have shouldered the majority of the blame for the GOP's failure to repeal and replace the 2010 health care law, but moderates may be equally - if not more - responsible for the impasse.

Since then, Meadows has been in frequent contact with his fellow Republicans, GOP leaders, and Vice President Mike Pence in hopes of brokering a deal that repeals some of Obamacare's insurance regulations-which conservatives say drove up the cost of premiums-but also protects sick patients.

"I want to make sure there is no denial of coverage based upon a pre-existing condition", he said. Even before the vote on the American Health Care Act was pulled, analysts were saying they didn't care whether or not it passed, only that Congress "be finished with this bill one way or another so that it can move forward with tax reform, which is likely to have a greater effect on corporate earnings and the real economy".

"If we attempt to muscle this thing through on a partisan basis, I feel we'll have a similar result", Dent said, referencing Obamacare. "While we haven't picked up any votes yet, this concept is already showing signs of losing a ton of them", a senior Republican source said.

With members of Congress now on recess, work on a a new healthcare bill is at a stand still.

Before members left Washington, Republicans unveiled a late change to the health care bill, called the American Health Care Act, after President Donald Trump urged them to make some progress on the proposal.
