FreedomWorks made the following statement following the press conference on ObamaCare lite and the solid proposal by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Reps. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas). Other participants included Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio).
“We support Rep. Jim Jordan and the Freedom Caucus’ decision to introduce repeal only legislation that passed last term,” said Jason Pye, director of public policy and legislative affairs.
“I’m proud of the members who still plan to keep their campaign promises. Unfortunately, some of them were committing fraud against the American people, voting for repeal when they knew Obama wouldn’t sign it. Now they’re supporting a different variety of ObamaCare.
“Republicans are supposed to believe in free markets. Obamacare lite does not fit with Republican legislators’ promises, professed principles, or platform.”
