Delavan, WI – Republican businessman Paul Nehlen again called on members of the U.S. House to sign onto the Freedom Caucus’s Discharge Petition that would bring Rep. Jim Jordan’s clean Obamacare repeal bill to the House floor for a vote.
“There isn’t a Republican Congressman still in office who didn’t campaign on repealing Obamacare, so there shouldn’t be one Republican in the House who takes issue with signing this discharge petition, and Paul Ryan should be the first Representative to sign it,” Nehlen said.
“Signing one’s name to this discharge petition is about one thing: Congress following through on its repeated promises to the American people to repeal Obamacare,” he continued. “It’s very simple: If a representative ran a campaign based on repealing Obamacare, but refuses to sign this petition, he or she has lied to their voters.”
“The Obamacare trainwreck has dragged on long enough, and real people are getting hurt as a result because they are losing access to healthcare more and more every day,” Nehlen said. “So for Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell — after seven years of promises — to tell us now that President Trump’s expectations are too high or unrealistic is a fireable offense.”
“Congress had one job — to repeal Obamacare. That’s it!” Nehlen said. “There is no excuse for their continuing refusal to sign this discharge petition or to bring a vote on Jim Jordan’s Obamacare repeal bill. Every Republican member should sign this petition today,” he asserted, “And Paul Ryan should get out of the way of the American people’s access to affordable health care. Either bring the bill for a vote, or he should step down,” Nehlen concluded.
