A hardline conservative group of about three dozen members of Congress, known as the House Freedom Caucus, introduced Wednesday a petition to bring a clean Obamacare repeal bill to the floor of the House of Representatives.


The bill, which is essentially a copy of the Obamacare repeal legislation that passed the House in 2015, will go to the House floor only if the petition, formally known as a “discharge petition,” can receive 218 signatures.

While unlikely to result in concrete law, the introduction of such a measure is meant to intensify pressure on both House and Senate Republicans to move forward on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

“[The discharge petition] is the first step in a multilayered process to make sure that we get a vote and finally deliver what we’ve been promising the American people for a long time,” said House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows of North Carolina.
