Two NC Congressmen Teaming Up To Force Paul Ryan’s Hand On Obamacare…

Excerpt From: The Washington Examiner. Written By: Philip Wegmann.

While Washington was waking up this morning, Reps. Mark Walker and Mark Meadows made things official on C-SPAN. Chairmen, respectively, of the Republican Study Committee and Freedom Caucus, the pair demanded complete repeal of Obamacare long before a replacement’s available.

More than posturing, the budding congressional bromance is meant to keep Republicans from getting cold feet. Walker and Meadows want to reuse a standalone repeal package that Republicans forced Obama to veto in 2016.

Republicans are all tied up in knots over whether to repeal the law with or without a replacement. All that hemming and hawing make Walker and Meadows worry that the GOP will lose their nerve.
