Will Senate Bill be a Win or a Loss?

“We aren’t stupid” two Senate aides told Axios. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is not even letting other senators see the GOP Senate’s “repeal and replace” Obamacare bill.

Despite the bill being a secret, one reporter claims moderates are winning and conservatives are losing.

Does the Freedom Caucus Have a Plan?

Does the Freedom Caucus Have a Plan?

The House Freedom Caucus (HFC) has pushed for full repeal of Obamacare…until now. These Republicans want the Affordable Care Act (ACA) fully repealed. They opposed Speaker Paul Ryan’s American Health Care Act (AHCA) and stopped two floor votes on AHCA (ah-ka).
