posted info, need to build out the table of all the members
In practice, however, the House Freedom Caucus has become heavily influenced by big-money individuals and organizations, such as the [[Heritage Foundation]], [[Club for Growth]], and the [[Koch brothers]], none of which have a [[pro-life]] agenda. The House Freedom Caucus blocked the [[ObamaCare]] repeal bill that would have defunded [[Planned Parenthood]].
