What’s Next for House Freedom Caucus After Poe’s Exit?

Texas GOP Rep. Ted Poe’s exit from the House Freedom Caucus after it helped sink the Republicans’ ObamaCare overhaul has created widespread uncertainty about the political future of the caucus and its roughly 35 other members.

The picture emerging Monday appeared to be that caucus members realize that their future largely depends on fulfilling campaign promises to fully repeal and replace the 2010 health care law.

“You cannot always say no,” Poe told Fox News Monday morning, about 12 hours after his resignation from the conservative caucus and three days after House Speaker Paul Ryan cancelled a final vote on the bill in the GOP-led chamber.

Poe, who supported the overall plan crafted by Ryan and his leadership team, also addressed the argument posed by President Donald Trump and others that voting against the plan could result in a 2018 re-election loss.

    No, No No…
    Then Do what was promised to Republican Voters for the last seven years on Total Repeal of Obamacare…
    Promises Made…Should be Promises Kept!
    Explode or Implode was not the Promise…It was total repeal ☆★☆

    I agree with Poe that you can’t always say “No”, but the fact remains that what Ryan proposed did nothing that I can see to remove the key provisions of Obamacare that resulted in higher premiums and less choice for consumers.

      The two thing that I read about that would help are removing the mandate and offering more choices. I would think that either of these should bring the cost down. If a young person could just get a health maintenance package (physicals, check ups, minor emergent care, etc) that they could buy a cheaper policy. My single 26 year old son does not need to be paying for pre-natal care. Nor does my 57 year old wife. But those are required in ACA sponsored choices. Also, allowing purchase of insurance across state borders is what brought down car insurance premiums in the early 80’s. Why not let some one in Montana buy insurance from North Dakota?

    The Republicans don’t seem to mind that they might further splinter the party while they push forward the globalist agenda. The framework for this is already in place. I think what America needs is the Constitutional Party.

      You summed it up, the framework is already in place and so are ALL the big WORLD WIDE MONEY PLAYERS!

    Republicans will have a bigger problem than the Freedom Caucus if they squander the opportunity voters gave them to replace Obamacare with a free-market based plan. Over the years the Republicans have been going through the motions of repealing Obamacare knowing their efforts would be vetoed by President Obama. Republicans even used this issue to gain control in the House, the Senate and the White House.

    When it finally became possible for them to repeal Obamacare and replace it they were unable to do so. I worked to help the Republicans regain the majority in the House, the Senate and to regain the White House. It now looks like this whole repeal and replace mantra was nothing but a scam carried out by Republican leadership to gain control. I expect these clowns to get their act together. I expect them to repeal Obamacare and to replace it with a workable solution.

    If the current Republican leaders are unwilling or unable to carry out this task they need to step aside. The same voters that put them in power can remove them from power in 2018. The House Republican leadership are nothing but losers.

    1. Rodney Steward says:

      I totally agree, and beginning to wonder if they can get their act together, they’ve had over 7 years on this BS and they still couldn’t do anything! If all of congress was forced to be under this healthcare that’s not to good for the people, they would do something!

      1. justinwachin says:

        You make a great point. If our elected officials got their health care through Obamacare and their retirement through Social Security things would change for health care and retirement.

        1. Rodney Steward says:

          Absolutely!!
