Republican Mark Meadows is the U.S. Representative for the 11th Congressional District in North Carolina since 2013. He is the leader of the Freedom Caucus in the House of Representatives and played a valuable part in forcing a no-vote on the repeal-and-replace Obamacare bill. President Trump and many other Republicans were elected on their promises repeal Obamacare, not just change it, and Congressman Meadows believes they should honor their promises.
The members of the Freedom Caucus are being called all sorts of names by other Republicans for causing the first big Republican loss. However, the conservative representatives are sticking to their principles. The bill pushed by President Donald Trump and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan was called Obamacare-lite because it would not repeal Obamacare. The Freedom Caucus in the House, along with conservative Senators such as Rand Paul, Mike Lee, and Ted Cruz, are working towards a bill that will completely repeal Obamacare.
Congressman Meadows is being hailed as a hero in North Carolina for demanding full repeal of Obamacare. As far as I am concerned, all members of Congress who are against Obamacare-lite are heroes. Obamacare must be fully repealed. Then Congress should prepare a bill that will make health care and health care insurance more affordable for all Americans.
