These People Saved the GOP and the Nation. Tell Them Thank You.

UPDATED: I thought I had Justin Amash on the list below, but I guess I accidentally deleted him. I’ve got him there now.


It is important to say thank you when warranted and a number of Republicans deserve our thanks. They held their ground and refused to accept a total capitulation on health care. They would not be bullied by the President, the Wall Street Journal, or Republican leaders.

The members of the House Freedom Caucus recognized that the American Health Care Act was a terribly drafted piece of legislation that not only did not do what it claimed, but would make things worse while breaking all the promises to repeal Obamacare.

They saved the GOP from the fall out of a terrible piece of legislation and they deserve our thanks. Please call their offices and let them know you appreciate them holding the line.
