The Freedom Caucus is negotiating from a position of strength

Conservative Review

It turns out that everything the GOP establishment has said until now about the policy, politics, and process of repealing Obamacare has been an outright lie. They never intended to repeal Obamacare. In fact, their health care bill is more insolvent than Obamacare. Now we know definitively that their excuses about process hurdles to real repeal were all lies, too. They have no leverage to demand that conservatives accept anything less than the only solvent version of the GOP platform on health care — and that is full repeal of Obamacare.

Those of us who have followed the health care debate since 2010 have long known that the key GOP members, staffers, consultants, and lobbyists involved in health care have accepted the entire premise of Obamacare all along. The promise to repeal the law was one of the biggest campaign lies of all time. They referred to what we knew as keeping the core of Obamacare, ironically, as repeal of Obamacare! Which is why many of us promoted primary challenges to senators such as Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Thad Cochran (R-Miss.). But they had enough industry money to run ads on our position to get elected and enact their position, which is Obamacare.
