All but one or two of the approximately three dozen members of the House Freedom Caucus are now on board with the revised bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, and conservatives hope this could help provide enough support to pass the measure this week.
“My understanding is all but two Freedom Caucus members are yesses,” a GOP aide told the Washington Examiner.
Under intense pressure from President Trump and White House officials, Republican leaders are trying to scrape together the 216 GOP votes needed to pass a bill to repeal and replace the law.
With Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, out this week, there are 430 members who could vote, and a majority of that number is 216. That means Republicans can lose as many as 21 GOP votes and still pass it.
