Moderate Republicans Are Stopping Obamacare Repeal… Again

Doug Sachtleben - April 05th, 2017

“This is big-government liberalism at work among House Republicans and Speaker Ryan is letting them run his conference.”

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement after Republican moderates in the House torpedoed a deal to repeal Obamacare:

“The left wing among House Republicans doesn’t want to compromise or keep their pledge to voters to repeal Obamacare,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “They’ve rejected deals that would give Americans more choices for cheaper health insurance, and now they won’t even allow states the chance to scale back Obamacare’s costliest regulations. Conservatives, including the Club for Growth, were willing to accept the latest deal that would let states seek regulation waivers, but moderates want Obamacare largely left intact. This is big-government liberalism at work among House Republicans and Speaker Ryan is letting them run his conference. The Speaker needs to stand up to the moderates who are putting the GOP’s 2018 future in jeopardy by undermining President Trump’s Obamacare repeal promise.”
