There appears to be an abundance of conservative skeptics in the midst of the Administration's new health care brainchild to repeal and replace Obamacare, the American Health Care Act.
A number of big-name conservative groups have outwardly expressed their resentment:
- Club for Growth, renaming it "Ryancare."
- Heritage Action for America, who dubbed the move "bad politics" and "bad policy."
- Americans for Prosperity (backed by the Koch Brothers), who tweeted, "Our advice: take it back to the drawing board."
- Cato Institute
- FreedomWorks, explained it as "Obamacare-lite" and threatened to launch a six-figure campaign against it, according to Politico.
- Republican Study Committee
- Tea Party Patriots
However, President Trump has come out and said that many support it and described it as "wonderful." Aside from Americans for Tax Reform, not many conservative groups have acknowledged support for the legislation up to this point.
Our wonderful new Healthcare Bill is now out for review and negotiation. ObamaCare is a complete and total disaster - is imploding fast!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 7, 2017
