Shortly after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told ABC’s “This Week” that Republicans “do not have the votes” to repeal and replace Obamacare, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) told the same program, “Well, we better have the votes for that, because that’s what we told the people — and I’m confident President Trump wants to do that.”
“We got to repeal it and we got to replace it,” Jordan told “This Week.” “I mean, remember what the American people were sold. They were sold a bill of goods on this thing. I tell people, they were sold a Caribbean cruise and they got the Titanic.
This thing is a mess,” Jordan continued:
And so I talk about the nine false statements they gave us: Like your plan, keep your plan. Like your doctor, keep your doctor. Premiums will decline. Premiums will decline on average $2,500, we were told. We were told deductibles would go down. We were told the website was going to work. The website was secure, were told. We were told emergency room visits would decline. And we were also told these co-ops that were formed, 23 of them, 18 of them have already gone bankrupt.
Host George Stephanopoulos asked Jordan about the “millions” who would lose health coverage if Obamacare is repealed.
“Think how bad sit right now,” Jordan said. “We … fewer choices, higher premiums, higher deductibles.”
