FreedomWorks Comment on Meadows and Jordan’s Obamacare Repeal Plan
FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented on the statement from Reps. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) calling for a vote on the ObamaCare repeal reconciliation bill that passed in the 114th Congress, H.R. 3762. House and Senate committees of jurisdiction are currently working on repeal legislation, but there are no certainties that the repeal bill will reflect the language of H.R. 3762.
“As weak Republicans’ appetites for keeping their campaign promises to repeal ObamaCare begin to wilt, Reps. Meadows and Jordan are calling their bluff. The repeal that passed last year under a Democrat president should be the bare minimum members of Congress should pass under President Donald Trump.
“If Republicans will not even support last year’s bill now that we have a president who will likely sign it, they will send a signal to the conservative grassroots that their campaign rhetoric and promises do not matter. That would be an unacceptable and despicable result.”
