“Republicans are fighting for the American people because we have a healthcare system, Obamacare, which is failing. I don’t know if you saw the news today that two million more people will be uninsured. This is the system Democrats put in place without any Republican input and now that it’s failing the Democrats have run away as quickly as they can.

Republicans are trying to solve a very difficult problem. It’s not easy, there’s a lot of diversity of thought, we’re having a dialogue and discussion, I do think it’s critical we find a resolution and I agree with the President that Congress should not take an August recess until they figure out the repeal and replacement of Obamacare. Our voters are depending on them and that’s part of why we were elected to lead and we need to get that done.”

President Trump made a similar call via Twitter today —


House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is echoing the calls to cancel August recess as well.

Meadows said in a statement –

“It’s really starting to gain momentum. The House Freedom Caucus took a position several weeks ago that we believe we need to put more things on the president’s desk. You know, he’s out there working members of Congress—we’ve got a president who works into all hours of the day and night—and yet we’re not putting things on his desk.

Whether it’s healthcare or tax reform or the debt ceiling or the budget, we need to be about the people’s business. There’s only one place you can pass legislation, and that’s in Washington, D.C., so let’s cancel the August recess and let’s be serious about the people’s work.

We got some senators that are coming on, but I’m sure there will be some kind of online petition that starts up and says ‘is your member of Congress willing to stay in and make America great again?’ When that happens, I think you’re going to see people from coast-to-coast and all over—all your listeners—believe we should be working just as hard as they do every day.”

Meadows is considered a strong ally of President Trump and the reason the original Republican version the new healthcare bill was able to pass the House.  This was after Lyin Paul Ryan made a spectacle of himself with his attempts to pass a Republican version of the health care bill that neither repealed nor replaced Obamacare.  It merely changed a handful of provisions keeping the bulk of the disaster known as Obamacare.

After Lyin Ryan’s public embarrassment of both himself and President Trump, Lyin Ryan took off for Europe and Hollywood. This enabled Meadows to work with Rep. Tom MacArthur (R-NJ) working out an amendment to win to obtain enough votes to pass the legislation through the House.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is facing similar challenges but Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) to the rescue working on a similar amendment.

Meadows states of the process –

“We’ve all campaigned on repealing Obamacare for seven years. I can tell you, yesterday, I was talking to some folks in Transylvania County, North Carolina, which is really part of my district, and they said ‘we don’t really understand why there wasn’t a plan on the president’s desk on January 20 let alone July 20.’ My advice to them is to stay engaged.

President Trump has stated that his intentions are to focus on tax reform once healthcare is addressed.  Many believe this is the key which will further unleash and stimulate the American economy.  The jobs report shows promise with 222,000 new jobs, but with that Meadows offers caution, stating –

“But we’ve got to deliver on it. That means making sure that we get corporate rates down, making sure that we double the standard deduction for moms and dads and aunts and uncles on Main Street, making sure that we deliver. For that, I think it’s also critical in the next two weeks—either this week or the following week—we make some real critical decisions on tax reform so we start working the legislative language.

That means the Border Adjustment Tax (BAT) is dead—you can argue for it or against it—but the reality is there’s not enough senators and not enough members of Congress to support it so we must go ahead and move on.

For me, I’m really closer to the president’s plan on tax reform. We need to make sure we have a corporate rate that’s 15 to 16%. We also need to make sure it passes through to those small businesses and we need to do a repatriation plan that allows us to bring back those foreign earnings and allows us to put them back to work creating American jobs again.

We can’t delay. One of the things is we continue to get surprised by deadlines we know are coming. It’s kind of like the debt ceiling. We need to go ahead and address it. It’s kind of like a florist being surprised by Valentine’s Day. It’s coming, we might as well go ahead and make the decision. I think it’s time, and I think the next two weeks are critical.”
