Conservative groups aren't happy with Senate health care bill

Several conservative groups attacked the Senate health care bill on a call with reporters Friday morning, saying it doesn't keep the GOP's promise of repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act.

While some conservatives on the call endorsed the strategy — tweeted by President Trump this morning — of repealing first and replacing others, while others said an amendment being pushed by Sen. Ted Cruz would make the bill palatable.

Why this matters: The divide among Republicans about how to best handle health care seems to be growing, egged on by both Trump and conservatives like Cruz and Sen. Rand Paul.
