Yes, the Freedom Caucus may block repeal, but not for the same reasons you or I would.
Repealing Obamacare but leaving the law in place for the next several years before it falls off a cliff would mean leaving in place the mechanisms that fund the law, at least temporarily.
Temporarily leaving the law's funding mechanisms intact is apparently a bridge too far for the Flying Monkey Caucus which is threatening to block the budget resolution that calls for repealing Obamacare.
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told the Washington Examiner he is unlikely to support the resolution poised for passage in the Senate next week because of his worries about Obamacare taxes. He said his members could block it in the House by using their roughly 40-member caucus to deny the GOP majority that's needed to pass it.
In other words, the current strategy for repealing the law doesn't go far enough.
The GOP's majority in the House actually narrowed this year, meaning it would take only 23 Republican defections to sink the budget resolution. The Freedom Caucus has 40 members.
It remains to be seen if the GOP's first effort to repeal the law will actually be blocked by their own members, but it's within the realm of possibility. A growing number of Republican senators have also voiced opposition to the "repeal and delay" strategy.
This is perfectly in line with the Freedom Caucus's behavior over the past several years, it's just incredibly amusing to see it in play now at this moment.
Republicans are incapable of governing.
