The Senate is Rounding up the Mules…. this one from the House

The chairman of the powerful House Freedom Caucus said more work needs to be done to get conservatives to support a bipartisan Senate deal to extend critical ObamaCare payments to insurers, but he called it a starting point.

“There are elements in the Alexander-Murray plan that we can build on, but much more work needs to be done,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C) in a statement, but he called it a “good start.”

The statement from Meadows doesn’t mean the Freedom Caucus has taken an official position on the plan, but the fact that Meadows did not reject the deal outright could be significant, as Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is expected to run into serious opposition from fellow Republicans if the bill advances to the House.
