Connelly endorsed by Freedom Caucus chairman in SC Congress race

On Tuesday, a source with the House Freedom Caucus familiar with health care negotiations told CNN that caucus chairman Mark Meadows had been in discussions with both the White House and House Speaker Paul Ryan and had presented a plan to Ryan over the phone that would essentially allow states to wave certain regulatory requirements.

"We're very close", Meadows said.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer promised Tuesday that negotiators are still working behind the scenes to bring together the centrist and far-right wings of the House Republicans to approve a health care bill.

Two weeks ago, Jordan and other members of the Freedom Caucus, said they wouldn't support the Republican Health Care Plan and the bill never made it to a vote.

In March, House leadership and the White House failed to strike a deal with the House Freedom Caucus on repealing Obamacare, and the legislation died.

Benjamin notes that before the Affordable Care Act, there were only 19,000 people enrolled in New York's individual insurance market. They knew what the deal was.

We can not forget how good they are, after what they did in Dortmund [a 3-2 win in the quarter-final first leg]. In the 55th minute, though, City's persistence finally bore fruit, albeit from a somewhat unlikely source.

"We don't get it". But now, when the time has arrived to actually vote for a bill that would repeal and replace ObamaCare, they suddenly have a newfound affinity for this disastrous policy which has thrown a monstrous monkey wrench into one-fifth of the US economy.

When Congress returns from recess, repealing the Affordable Care Act could be back on the table, with some changes that critics say would cost NY billions of dollars.

Joining Dent and Meadows, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican, is also getting in on the health care talks. The only victor in both cases would be further growth of government bureaucracy, and the large health systems and insurance companies (special interests) feeding at the trough of taxpayer subsidies - probably the real reason for the Republican establishment's lost zeal for repeal. "What we're trying to do is work through issues that are important to all of us but make sure that pre-existing conditions are taken care of".

Though lawmakers are scheduled to remain home until the end of April-they'll return to Washington with four days to pass a stopgap spending bill-Meadows isn't ruling out an early return.

The USA Today report noted that Meadows is in "frequent conversation" with Ryan, Vice President Mike Pence, and House Tuesday Group co-chairman Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) in recent days, and that if the plan reaches "consensus" soon, "the House may come back from recess to vote". But we can be sure that whatever happens, it's going to be close. "We feel very buoyed by the direction this is going".

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.
