Moderates Killed ObamaCare Repeal — Will They Kill Other Conservative Priorities?

Originally Published in The Hill on 8/3/17.

Republican moderates in the Senate killed ObamaCare repeal. Many conservatives, who are anxious to get big policy wins on the scoreboard this year, are beginning to wonder if the Republican majority will ever get its act together.

While Republican moderates constantly tried to extort more money from leadership to get their votes, conservatives like Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made concession after concession, finally getting only a watered down version of the Consumer Freedom Option, which would let Americans on the nongroup market opt-out of ObamaCare.
