Freedom Caucus, Trump reach "agreement in principle" on healthcare

“The president and I came to an agreement in principle,” Meadows said during an interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity, adding that he was still ironing out a few final details with the White House.

“I think what we’re trying to do now is make sure that our agreement is actually something that can be executed in a way that passes the Senate,” he added. “There’s still work to be done, but I can tell you that the president is all engaged.”

The round-the-clock negotiations between the White House, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and the ultraconservative Freedom Caucus have centered on adding to the bill a repeal of ObamaCare’s “essential health benefits,” as well as other insurance regulations in Title I of the existing health law.
