During an interview this morning on “Fox News Sunday,” House Freedom Caucus vice chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) said that in their efforts to withhold support from the American Health Care Act proposal, the Freedom Caucus “did the country a favor.”
Jordan told Chris Wallace, “Let’s get back to work and do what we told the voters we would do. Remember this bill — 17 percent of the country approved of this bill. Maybe [in] the fact that we opposed it, we did the country a favor because this bill didn’t repeal Obamacare.”
He continued, “This bill didn’t do what we told the American people we would do. Let’s be responsible, get back to work and do what we told the American people what we were going to accomplish, which is repeal Obamacare and replace it with a patient-centered health care program.”
