GOP Rep. Jim Jordan: Let's Vote On The Exact Same Obamacare Repeal We Sent To Obama

|

On Wednesday's Morning Joe, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said Congressional Republicans should introduce and vote on the "exact same" legislation that repeals Obamacare that was sent to President Obama when he held the presidency. Jordan called on his Republican brethren to "do what we told the voters we were going to do."

"Let's do this right and, more importantly, let's do what we told the voters we were going to do," Jordan said. "That’s why today I’ll be introducing legislation which just says clean repeal. Let's vote on the exact same thing -- 15 months ago, every single Republican in the House, every single Republican in the Senate voted on. We put it on President Obama’s desk."

Jordan, like GOP Senator Rand Paul, said the current 'repeal and replace' legislation being touted by Speaker Paul Ryan is "Obamacare in a different form" and keeps some of the taxes from the original bill.

"Every conservative group out there is opposed to this legislation, because as I said yesterday and others have said, I think it's ObamaCare in a different form because we didn't tell the voters we were going to repeal ObamaCare but keep some of the ObamaCare taxes," the GOP Congressman said. "We didn't tell the voters we’re going to repeal ObamaCare but keep and extend Medicaid expansion. And we certainly didn't tell the voters we were going to repeal ObamaCare but start a new entitlement."
