ObamaCareLite. RyanCare. TrumpCare. RINOcare.
Whatever you want to call it, the lines have been drawn between certain conservative Republicans in Congress and the rest of the GOP. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and in particular the Freedom Caucus are opposed to Paul Ryan’s proposal. It may be time to talk to the Freedom Caucus and see how we can work with them.
Here’s a letter from a Federalist who offered some great ideas.
Paul Ryan basically signaled that he could not care less about the Freedom Caucus or reigning in our out of control Federal Government. Historically the party has shown that they will PRIMARY anyone who goes up against leadership. Ryan has basically told the Freedom Caucus that the Leadership Health Care Package will pass and to get on board.
Strategically the timing might never be better for Legislators committed to Limited Government and the balance of power between the 3 branches and the states to join The Federalist Party.
Many pundits will argue that these courageous politicians making the switch will be committing political suicide. My experience is that when a Politician puts the people ahead of his party and career, usually the career takes off!
Anyway, keep up your great work.
