The House Freedom Caucus has announced its support of the American Health Care Act.

In the statement on Rep. Meadows’ (R-NC) site, the caucus reiterates that their goal is still to fully repeal Obamacare.

The MacArthur amendment will grant states the ability to repeal cost driving aspects of Obamacare left in place under the original AHCA.  While the revised version still does not fully repeal Obamacare, we are prepared to support it to keep our promise to the American people to lower healthcare costs. We look forward to working with our Senate colleagues to improve the bill. Our work will continue until we fully repeal Obamacare.”

The bill could be voted on this week.
