Rep. Meadows says health care vote possible in near future
Eight days is not a lot of time, but Republicans hope to get a deal done on health care before President Donald Trump's first 100 days are up.
And there are reports a deal could be in the works.
Sources said the conservative House Freedom Caucus and the moderate Tuesday Group are close to a breakthrough that could net 18-20 new "yes" votes.
Freedom Caucus Leader Rep. Mark Meadows, who was in Asheville on Thursday, said negotiations were ongoing.
"I've had a number of conversations with the administration, with our leadership, with senators and just left Mission Hospital," Meadows, R-NC11, said. "And how we make sure health care is affordable and accessible to everybody and making sure those pre-existing conditions are taken care of, that's my commitment to the people I serve."
Meadows said there's a good chance there will be a health care vote in the near future.
