Conservative groups publicly dissing RyanCare or Obamacare lite

Compiled by Axios

House GOP leadership released the text of their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare last night…and they’re getting quite a bit of pushback on their own side of the aisle. (Not to mention from the American Cancer Society.) Here’s a running list of conservative organizations and politicians across the web speaking out against the American Health Care Act.

Organizations:
Americans for Prosperity/Freedom Partners: “It is Obamacare 2.0”

Cato Institute: “This bill is a train wreck waiting to happen.”

Club for Growth: “The problems with this bill are not just what’s in it, but also what’s missing…”

FreedomWorks: “This is ObamaCare-lite.”

Heritage Action for America: “That is bad politics and, more importantly, bad policy.”

Republican Study Committee: “This is a Republican welfare entitlement.”

Tea Party Patriots: “The bill that House Republicans released last night does not fully repeal Obamacare.”

Politicians:
Rep. Justin Amash (MI): “Obamacare 2.0”

Rep. Dave Brat (VA): “Now [they] are saying we’re going to do repeal and replace but the bill does nothing of the sort.”

Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (WV), Sen. Cory Gardner (CO), Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK), and Sen. Rob Portman (OH): “We will not support a plan that does not include stability for Medicaid expansion populations or flexibility for states.”

Rep. Tom Garrett (VA): “This is simply too important to rush through.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX): “You’re creating another entitlement program.”

Rep. Jim Jordan (OH): “This is Obamacare by a different form.”

Sen. Mike Lee (UT): “This is not the Obamacare repeal bill we’ve been waiting for.”

Gov. Paul LePage (ME): “Right now, I am very, very discouraged and disappointed with what the House Republicans are introducing.”

Rep. Mark Meadows (NC): “If leadership insists on replacing ObamaCare with ObamaCare-lite, no repeal will pass.”

Sen. Rand Paul (KY): “The House leadership plan is Obamacare Lite. It will not pass. Conservatives are not going to take it.”

Rep. Mark Sanford (SC): “Do we need to lower the bar in what we believe as conservatives simply because a Republican is now in the White House?”

One to watch: Breitbart, which signaled today that a GOP health care plan that damages Trump might be unacceptable: “If Ryan put forward a healthcare bill that can’t even pass the House or the Senate…he could be severely hurting the credibility of the Trump administration as part of a fool’s effort to advance his own political agenda.”
