Vice President Mike Pence is a man among men. He stands as the peacemaker to get the job done and that’s the way it should be.
When I watched social media followers blindly submit to crazy people who shot down the Freedom Caucus, making fun of them, all I could do was shake my head at their stupidity. The Freedom Caucus are conservatives and there’s no other way to put it. You snap at them you show what level of understanding you have about your own platform.
Pence joined the Freedom Caucus to iron out a deal that would bring them onboard to where they felt they were doing the work of the people, something they didn’t have with Speaker Paul Ryan.
A couple of weeks ago it was very tense after President Trump called them out based off the information he was given by Ryan. Pence offered an apology on Monday, as they began their work.

Trump and members of the White House then began to openly criticize the Freedom Caucus for obstructing heath care reform. The White House’s director of social media Dan Scavino personally attacked one key Freedom Caucus member, Michigan Congressman Justin Amash, in a tweet that stated: “the #TrumpTrain (will) defeat him in primary.”
Pence’s statement came after the Caucus’s chairman, North Carolina Congressman Mark Meadows, asked Pence to “address attacks coming from the White House” against the group, said one person in the room.
Some members of the Caucus speaking on the condition of anonymity liked what they heard from Pence both in terms of his apology and his acknowledgment that the White House’s initial plan didn’t go far enough in reversing ObamaCare.
Meadows, for instance, has a good relationship with Steve Bannon, one of Trump’s most powerful advisers. But he and his members are more skeptical of Reince Priebus, who before becoming Trump’s chief of staff served as chairman of the Republican National Committee.
This sounds so promising. What do you think will happen? Will there be a deal before Friday? Share your opinions below in the comment section.
