The right-leaning House Freedom Caucus challenged Republican lawmakers in a vote Monday night that would make it harder to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
According to The Hill, the group voted to oppose a bill that would repeal the 2010 law unless the repeal bill takes an even stronger stance against it than a 2015 effort did.
"If it's less than 2015, we will oppose it," Rep. Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican, told The Hill. Meadows chairs the group.
Republicans want to repeal and replace Obamacare at some point in the near future. President Donald Trump campaigned hard against the healthcare law and Republicans, now that they control both houses of Congress as well as the executive branch, are eager to put something together.
Not everyone in the GOP is on the same page regarding Obamacare, however. How much of the law to repeal, including how it would affect taxes, is a major topic of discussion.
