If the Republicans' bill to repeal Obamacare ultimately fails, the GOP says it has some other options.
While lawmakers say they are still confident about the legislation, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said the party has backup plans to turn to if the American Health Care Act fails. Meadows emphasized that he is "all-in" on the latest bill.
"We're gonna vote on something that has 218 votes in the House," Meadows told reporters Friday. "It is either this or a backup plan B or C."
Meadows, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, didn't give many details on what the backup plans would be or who proposed them.
He said one plan could look at "tax credits to make sure that what we are doing is lowering the net premium."
But Meadows emphasized that he is pushing for a vote on the American Health Care Act with a new amendment that would let states opt out of certain Obamacare insurance requirements. The amendment released this week helped to bring most of the Freedom Caucus on board.
However, the amendment has caused some centrist Republicans to waver, and leadership has admitted it doesn't have the votes to take it to the floor.
Meadows shot down the idea that House Speaker Paul Ryan should bring it up for a vote if it is only a few members short.
"I think that you have to hold the votes knowing that you at least have a good chance for success," he said. "I am not going to question the speaker's call on not holding the vote."
The House is leaving town this weekend without holding a vote on the new version of the legislation, and it is not clear if leadership will bring it up for a vote next week.
