Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) made the following statement regarding today’s decision by Republican House leadership to cancel today’s scheduled vote on the American Health Care Act:

“Obamacare is a disaster, and repealing it remains one of my top priorities. It's why I introduced a clean repeal bill and have been pushing for a vote. The AHCA did not have the support it needed, neither in Congress nor among the American people. Now, House Republicans owe it to our constituents to immediately get back to the drawing board and bring forward a bolder effort to replace the failing Obamacare with a plan to reduce costs by increasing choice and competition. I look forward to working with my Republican colleagues to accomplish this goal.”
