Jim Jordan: Paul Ryan’s Health Care Bill ‘Doesn’t Repeal ObamaCare
JORDAN: No, the effective date for that is two years out. It’s the same thing we put on President Obama’s desk, Chris. Why not put that on President Trump’s desk? We think we’re going to get a different outcome. We believe President Trump will sign it.
Understand the speaker’s plan doesn’t repeal ObamaCare. Even Charles Krauthammer said that, called it ObamaCare-light, as you said earlier. It doesn’t bring down premiums and it doesn’t unite Republicans.
So, why not do what we all voted for just 15 months ago, clean repeal, and then get focused and build some momentum to actually replace ObamaCare with something that’s going to bring down costs?
