Mark Meadows Questions Whether GOP Establishment’s “Obamacare Lite” Plan Will Lower Costs…

Excerpt By: The Hill.  Written By: Mark Hensch

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) on Monday night wondered whether his party’s plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare would ultimately lower healthcare costs.

“The biggest concern I have is, will it lower healthcare costs?” he asked on Fox News’s “Hannity.”

“Until we get that answer we have to hold out judgment.”

Meadows added that the GOP is nearing a viable ObamaCare replacement, but said the party’s latest version falls short of its efforts in 2015.

“Certainly we’re making progress,” he said. “I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention some of the taxes present in the original version are no longer present. [But] we’ve got to do better. Hopefully with some amendments we can do that.

“This doesn’t even go as far as we went in 2015. We’ve got to find that sweet spot. We really need to look at some amendments to make sure that we get rid of the taxes.”
