Congressman Jim Jordan made the following comments after the House Freedom Caucus voted to support the American Health Care Act with the addition of the MacArthur amendment:

“Since President Trump took office, I have been working relentlessly on our shared goal of repealing Obamacare and replacing it with a better, more affordable plan. Our efforts in the House Freedom Caucus to hold the line and improve the American Health Care Act have paid off.  While I remain committed to replacing Obamacare entirely, I can support this new version of the bill moving forward.  It is our best chance to pass a bill through the House that will actually reduce the cost of health insurance for everyday Americans. I look forward to working with the Senate to further improve this bill, and deliver on the promise that Republicans and the president made to the American people.”
