The chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Tuesday told Breitbart News the entire GOP Conference is united as it begins the real test of passing legislation to unleash the economy.

“Achieving the agenda for the American people and making them happy around a dinner table is a lot better [and more important] than trying to make members happy on Capitol Hill,” said Rep. Mark Meadows (R.-N.C.), who is the new leader of the House Freedom Caucus, the conservative bloc inside the House GOP caucus.

Meadows filed the formal Vacate the Chair motion in 2015, which led directly to the resignation of then-House Speaker John A. Boehner (R.-Ohio).

    I am a life-long Republican, and I have been forever dismayed by Republicans who view their own little worlds as more important than loyalty to core principles. Such narrow-minded thinking has hurt them in the past and, if they continue to govern with such a myopic focus, it will hurt Republicans, all of them, in the future. We have no better opportunity than right now to reverse much of the damage done by progressives in government; this opportunity will be fleeting (as was Obama’s opportunity) and Republicans need to make the most of it. Shame on those who don’t recognize it and support it.
