The House Freedom Caucus, comprised of the libertarian wing of the GOP in the U.S. House of Representatives, has officially changed its stance on the American Health Care Act, a bill designed to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Excerpts from a statement just released by the Freedom Caucus:
“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.”
(MacArthur’s amendment will grant states the ability to repeal cost-driving aspects of the original bill.)
“We are prepared to support (the AHCA) to keep our promise to the American people to lower healthcare costs.”
“Our work will continue,” the statement concludes, until all elements of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are history.
