The Freedom Caucus, also known as the House Freedom Caucus, is a congressional caucus consisting of conservative Republican members of the United States House of Representatives.
A house is a building that functions as a home, ranging from simple dwellings such as rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes and the improvised shacks in shantytowns to complex, fixed structures of wood, brick, concrete or other materials containing plumbing, ventilation and electrical systems.
The United States House of Representatives is the lower chamber of the United States Congress which, along with the Senate, composes the legislature of the United States.
A congressional caucus is a group of members of the United States Congress that meets to pursue common legislative objectives.
It was formed in 2015 by a group of Congressmen as what member Jim Jordan called a "smaller, more cohesive, more agile and more active" group of conservatives.
The caucus is sympathetic to the Tea Party movement.
The Tea Party movement is an American political movement known for its conservative positions and its role in the Republican Party.
According to its mission statement, it "gives a voice to countless Americans who feel that Washington does not represent them.
We support open, accountable and limited government, the Constitution and the rule of law, and policies that promote the liberty, safety and prosperity of all Americans."
