House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) tells that he expects House Republicans will unite around common principles and pass an Obama care repeal and replace bill that lowers premiums for Americans soon—delivering President Donald Trump a major victory in the Congress’s lower chamber.
Meadows, a pro-Trump conservative leader in the House who stuck with the president throughout the entire campaign, is confident that renewed negotiations—with the help of senior White House officials—with House GOP leaders and House Republican moderates is likely to produce real results in the House.
Meadows said that he expects by the 200-day mark that President Trump—with Republicans conference-wide, especially the House Freedom Caucus, at his side—will be able to hammer home more than 20 campaign promises delivered:
We’re committed to not only helping him deliver that [healthcare reform] but also helping him make sure that campaign promise is one of the first dozen or so that he’s been able to deliver on. I’m hopeful that by the end of his first 200 days in office, he’ll have more than 20 campaign promises that he will have delivered on. He’s on a good pace and clip to do just that.
