(Before It's News)

House Freedom Caucus chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) is a boss.

After President Trump threatened (for the second time) to drive out any Republicans who did not support this monstrous “Trumpcare” bill, Meadows remained unfazed.

 “I serve at the pleasure of the people of western North Carolina, and when you serve at their pleasure, it’s only those 750,000 people that can send you home,” Meadows told reporters Tuesday.

“It’s a temporary job, and I’ve known that from day one.”


Trump addressed the GOP conference earlier Tuesday and made the remarks about some of them being sent home in 2018, if they didn’t get rid of Obamacare, in favor of this new Republican version.

Trump specifically singled out Meadows as an opponent to the measure, saying, “I think Mark Meadows will get there, too. Mark, I’m coming after you.”

Meadows and Jim Jordan, another HFC member are both standing firm in opposition.

“I’m still a no, because the bill we’re currently considering does not lower premiums for the vast majority of Americans,” Meadows said.

“I certainly think that the president is the best guy to bring this home and close this deal out. Hopefully, we’ll be able to do that, but if everyone’s entrenched at this particular point it’s going to be a very difficult 48 hours.”

Stand your ground. Don’t worry about Twitter or 2018. In the long run, Trump stands to lose more.
