  • GOP infighting imperils agenda

72-year-old Cliff Ward told Amash that he supported the conservative congressman's decision to block the American Health Care Act, but added, "now we need you to work with Trump and the other Republicans to get this done".

Meadows told USA Today he planned to deliver a plan that kept language requiring insurers to cover pre-existing conditions.

Right now there are Republican factions who believe that health care should be abandoned so they can score a win on tax reform, and factions that believe tax reform isn't possible without first dealing with the Affordable Care Act.

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said there were "two options" on the table and he expected to hear back from House Speaker Paul Ryan about them. But we can be sure that whatever happens, it's going to be close.

There are arguably more hard "no" votes (members not likely to be convinced to move to "yes") for the GOP leadership's plan among moderate Republicans than there are among the members of the Freedom Caucus.

Conservative groups are frustrated by the resistance among more moderate members to repealing community rating and other ObamaCare protections, saying lawmakers are going back on their word to repeal the health law.

"I want to make sure there is no denial of coverage based upon a pre-existing condition", he said.

"If we attempt to muscle this thing through on a partisan basis, I feel we'll have a similar result", Dent said, referencing Obamacare. Worse, this week it was reported that Trump is officially putting tax reform on hold to give health care another go.

According to Axios, the Republican has talked to both Dent and Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a Democrat, about reforming the health care system.

But the Club for Growth is one of a few groups looking to put pressure on those moderate Republicans just in time for Congress's Easter Recess. Those targeted include Walden and Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.), the chief deputy whip, who last week said the Freedom Caucus's calls were a "bridge too far for our members" and could not pass.

"I'm optimistic that we'll see a very different process as tax reform comes along", Meadows told CBN News.
