This is how I see the current Republican debate over the new healthcare bill between the leadership and the Freedom Caucus.
Freedom Caucus: We demand that you strip 20 million people of their health insurance immediately!
Leadership: I know our bill only strips 10 million of their insurance, but stripping all 20 million carries to much political fallout. By applying the gradual squeeze, you can strip more people of their insurance in the long run without taking as much blame.
Freedom Caucus: Any plan that doesn't strip 20 million people of their insurance immediately won't get my support.
