Moderates are not happy either. Looks like efforts to revive Obamacare repeal are dead, at least for this week, and Congress is out next week.
House conservatives appear ready to walk away from a revived proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare after complaining that the latest plan was being watered down to appeal to more moderate House Republicans, the Washington Examiner reported.
Sources with the House Freedom Caucus told the Washington Examiner the fledgling deal would fall apart if the terms of the agreement were modified, and that those modifications appear to have occurred in a late night meeting in the Capitol on Tuesday.
Conservative lawmakers had that reaction even as the White House was saying that talks were continuing. One White House official told reporters there was a sense that both sides were still getting closer to a deal.
