Senate may jam health-care bill through really fast after House passage
Once the House passes the Republican health-care bill, it could become law very quickly, Larry Kudlow said on Thursday.
According to sources, Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows has "been in discussion and successfully negotiating" with Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican from Maine, and they have been agreeing on a number of issues, Kudlow reported.
"So for the first time, as this person reported to me, if the House can get a vote next week or soon after, the Senate may jam it right through fast. It won't take weeks and weeks and weeks," the senior CNBC contributor said on "Closing Bell."
The GOP has a new plan to repeal and replace Obamacare that aims to bridge the gap between the conservative Freedom Caucus and moderates, according to a document obtained by CNBC. A Freedom Caucus source told CNBC the new health bill would get "very close" to 216 votes.

3. But you'll have so many new choices now!
A: Buy shitty insurance that covers nothing.
B: Buy expensive insurance you can't afford.
C: Buy groceries.
You see, it's all about choice! And how can anyone argue against that?
So then I'm right about being wrong.
