House Freedom Caucus
House Freedom Caucus is a group, of conservative Congressional Representatives. It is essentially a conservative version of the much larger Republican Study Committee. Members have often clashed with GOP leadership.
The House Freedom Caucus mission reads:
|“||The House Freedom Caucus gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them. We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans.||”|
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.
