House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters after a White House meeting that no deal had been reached on the House GOP’s health care bill.
Meadows and members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus met with Trump and his key advisers Wednesday in the hours before the House was expected to vote on the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Following the meeting, Meadows said there was “no deal” in place at that time, according to the Associated Press.
Conservatives want Obamacare’s insurance regulations repealed in the plan, and say they believe undoing them will lower the cost of insurance premiums.
Trump met with the conservatives in hopes of convincing them to support the bill. But ultimately, it doesn’t appear the members were swayed at the meeting.
Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, told reporters he still wasn’t supporting the bill, despite meeting with Trump.
House leaders haven’t announced whether they’ll postpone tonight’s expected vote.
Despite the meeting’s outcome, White House press secretary Sean Spicer said “nothing leads me to believe” the vote was going to be canceled.
