Happy New Year!
The newly formed House Freedom Caucus will push back against soft Republican efforts to simply pass bills and instead will pursue a true conservative agenda, Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) tells Breitbart News.
Conservative lawmakers in the House have set-up a new group called the "Freedom Caucus," splitting from the Republican Study Committee after saying it had become too wedded to the leadership, The Hill reported.
A new caucus aimed at pushing “an agenda of limited, constitutional government” is up-and-running, launched by nine conservative members of the House of Representatives.
Monday the conservative Republicans — including many who’ve been critics of House leadership — announced the formation of what they call the House Freedom Caucus.
