The House Freedom Caucus is picking a side and they are damn smart in doing so!
Our President rightfully went after the House Freedom Caucus back in March. Mark Meadows and the remaining members got the message loud and clear. They are all in on the President’s agenda. Especially the building of the WALL. This has made Paul Ryan have sleepless nights because he could always count on the HFC to save his bacon. Those days are long gone! Mark Meadows could very easily become the next Speaker of the House.
From the article linked above:
Speaking at a rally in Phoenix Tuesday evening, Trump ramped up pressure on congressional leaders to deliver on one of his top campaign promises: a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“If we have to close down our government, we’re building that wall,” he told the crowd.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), who was close to Trump during the 2016 campaign, is warning that Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and McConnell could lose their jobs if they fall short on tax reform and funding the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
“Bottom line: if Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can get the president’s agenda done, they can probably keep their jobs,” Meadows said in an interview.
“If Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can’t get the president’s agenda done, I don’t know that they get to keep theirs, nor do I know if I get to keep mine. We’ve got to deliver. It’s critically important we do that in a way that conservatives have long espoused,” he said.
