President Donald Trump has said House Freedom Caucus members – a conservative faction in the GOP – must be defeated in the 2018 primaries. But he’ll need their help to push through another attempt by Republicans to replace the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) is a Freedom Caucus member who opposed the American Health Care Act, the Republican replacement for Obamacare. He’s also recently voted with Democrats against a rollback of internet privacy regulations. He sits down with Soledad O’Brien to discuss the Freedom Caucus, new ideas on healthcare reform and the importance of pragmatism over preferred policy.
