House Republicans emerged from a closed-door meeting Thursday morning confident and “feeling good” that they have the votes on a bill to partially repeal Obamacare, and dismissed questions about why they are moving forward without an updated estimate from the Congressional Budget Office.
House Speaker Paul Ryan was “cheering. I think he was almost giddy,” said Rep. Daniel Webster, R-Fla., one of the holdouts who announced he is supporting the bill.
Rep. Luke Messer, R-Ind., told the Washington Examiner that the meeting had a celebratory feel, despite what is likely to be a close margin.
“This was a day that people were feeling good about the fact that we’ve worked together, we’ve got a better product than we started with,” Rep. Messer, R-Ind., said after the meeting. “And, a recognition that there is still a lot of work that we have to do.”
