"The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!" - Donald Trump
Mark Meadows for President!
I’m a huge supporter of the President, but I disagree with him on this one.
Conservative litmus tests:
1. Does this law create more freedom or less freedom?
2. Does this law force one person to pay for another person (i.e., less freedom for the responsible payer)?
0vomitcare fails both tests and so does Ryancare.
HFC =/= all or most conservatives.
Unless we all supported them voting for Ryan as Speaker.
And no Trump’s voting base did not consist of people that even know who the HFC is. Most of the HFC were members of NeverTrump, and were working for Hillary to win.
He then thought that he had their votes on healthcare.
The Freedom Caucus then unilaterally changed their requirements without asking or informing Trump and voted against the bill.
That is why one of the founding members left the Freedom Caucus.
They didn't keep their word.
I hope this is not true. It was the same people who voted in the FC that voted in Trump. How could he not know this?
Heck, if RINO was what people wanted, Yeb would be in the White House.
News Flash: Trump is a populist, not a conservative.
I agree with Trump. Freedom Clowns should stop obstruction.
They want 150%. Its not possible.
wow! The replies to that tweet at the link ... not like during the campaign.
Time to start thinking about who we run in the 2020 primary.
I’ve been tweeting him back. Freedom Caucus supporters are Trump supporters. I feel like he is targeting his own supporters. Why??? Are they that tone death in the White House?
Imagine this, he tweeted it!
Go left young men! Lol.. anyone. Who remembers trumps reform party run, already knew this. Lefty lurch. Principles be damned, just win? Right.?
I know many on FR are in love with Ivanka, but I have to say that I get an uneasy feeling whenever I see her involvement. I hear she’s now an official employee and I really don’t care for it.
But he is “conservative” where it matters. Judges, immigration, America first.
The people who voted for Trump are the same people that support the views of those who are on the Freedom Caucus. It’s beginning to look like Trump is now part of the DC swamp and expects the good American patriotic congressional members to follow him. EFF THAT! Trump needs to be following them and to kick Paul Ryan and his other swamp creature advisers out the door.
Mr. President...don’t look now, but the FC saved your political a$$ on that bogus, RINOCARE Bill!
I’m beginning to believe that old story about all new incoming presidents being shown some movie.
Donald Trump is not "the boss". Congressmen serve and are answerable to the people of their districts. The President is their equal, not their superior.
What Ryan proposed is NOT what Trump ran on. It was not a repeal; it was a repair. It appears Trump is now defending the same RINOS he ran against.
