Trump Calls Out Freedom Caucus On Trumpcare

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday morning directly challenged the House Freedom Caucus to support his ObamaCare repeal plan, warning that they would be inadvertently supporting Planned Parenthood if they opposed his bill.

“The irony is that the Freedom Caucus, which is very pro-life and against Planned Parenthood, allows P.P. to continue if they stop this plan!” Trump tweeted. “After seven horrible years of ObamaCare (skyrocketing premiums & deductibles, bad healthcare), this is finally your chance for a great plan!”

Trump is turning up the pressure on Republicans hours before an expected vote on the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The bill, backed by Trump and House GOP leadership, has faced opposition from the conservative Freedom Caucus as well as centrist Republicans. Republicans are a dozen votes short of what they need to pass the measure, according to The Hill’s whip count.
