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 also would have defunded [[Planned Parenthood]]. They insisted on provisions, such as dropping the essential medical services requirements of ObamaCare, which would make the bill unacceptable to moderate Republicans. In response, on March 30, 2017, President Trump tweeted an attack on the Freedom Caucus telling them to "get on the team and fast."<ref>{{cite web|url=https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/847435163143454723|title=realDonaldTrump|date=March 30, 2017|accessdate=March 31, 2017}}</ref>
"I hope the President will bear in mind that the freedom caucus is going to provide the bulwark of the support the President needs on things like border security, trade agreements and making sure that the [[Trans-Pacific Partnership ]] does not resurface in a different shape or fashion," Alabama Congressman Mo Brooks told CNN.
"Our support is going to be necessary for tax cuts and for the protection of free enterprise. So we're not always going to agree, but there are some major issues going forward where the President will need our support and I hope he will bear that in mind," Brooks said.<ref>{{cite news|url=https://www.cnn.com/2017/03/31/politics/donald-trump-white-house-presidency/index.html|title=The Russia/Flynn/Freedom Caucus vortex of questions and tension at the White House|first=Stephen |last=Collinson|work=CNN|date=April 1, 2017|accessdate=April 1, 2017}}</ref>
