The aftermath of the failed American HealthCare Act continues to unfold for all sides involved. Case in point: Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas) stepped down from the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) on Sunday, stating he wanted to vote for the ObamaCare replacement bill that the HFC was dead against.
Poe put out a statement on Sunday, in it he says his decision to resign will allow him to better serve the people of his district. He wrote, “In order to deliver on the conservative agenda we have promised the American people for eight years, we must come together to find solutions to move this country forward. Saying no is easy, leading is hard, but that is what we were elected to do. Leaving this caucus will allow me to be a more effective Member of Congress and advocate for the people of Texas. It is time to lead.”
The Freedom Caucus does not keep an official list of members, and Poe was a recent addition to the group.
