Rep. Jordan: Fulfill Promise to Voters with 'Clean Repeal' of ObamaCare
U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) joined "Fox News Sunday" to discuss the replacement to ObamaCare.
The Freedom Caucus member said he is not for the proposed House GOP health care bill, known as the American Health Care Act, and said there is much opposition to that plan in the House and the Senate.
Jordan said he is in favor of a clean repeal to ObamaCare first -- a motion he introduced in Congress this past week.
"Why not do what we all voted just 15 months ago?" he said. "Clean repeal and then get focused and build some momentum to actually replace ObamaCare with something that's going to bring down cost."
He said the current proposal is just a different form of ObamaCare. As such, he said the promise to voters to "repeal and replace" the program would not be fulfilled.
Jordan though said he is encouraged by President Donald Trump's willingness to negotiate changes to the bill.
"They're open to change. ... We're looking at those issues that we think can make this bill consistent with what we told the American people we were going to do," Jordan said.
