While House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows announced earlier this week that members of the caucus will not be bound to vote against the GOP Obamacare replacement legislation, he says a number of the members, himself included, have serious reservations about the bill. USA Today has the details: But just because they were given the OK to vote however they chose didn’t mean everyone was ready to vote yes.
