“We’ve communicated very clearly what we’d like to see and have done. We’ve spent hours and hours and hours investing in trying to make this a better bill, and at this point it’s very clear that negotiations are over,” Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) told reporters Monday.
Meadows met over weekend with White House officials at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.
House Republican leaders are planning on releasing an amendment to the healthcare plan Monday night, but Meadows said he has seen the changes and that they are not enough to sway votes.
“There are some small tweaks that are good tweaks, but there’s not substantial changes in the manager’s amendment that would make anybody be more compelled to vote for this,” Meadows said.
“I don’t think that the bill will pass without substantial changes.”
