Rep. Jim Jordan Regrets Breaking Two Promises to the American People

A leading Republican in Congress and a star figure in the House Freedom Caucus told Fox News Channel’s Neil Cavuto this weekend that he wouldn’t blame voters for holding two big broken promises against the GOP.

“I would say the two biggest promises made to the American people that we didn’t get done were repealing and replacing Obamacare and building the border security wall, actually getting control of the southern border,” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) said on Friday. “Those two things. They will not get done if Democrats take power, we know that. In fact, they want to go in the opposite direction. They want to socialize medicine more. They want to have an open border and get rid of ICE.”

Jordan said that as far as healthcare is concerned, he’s not surprised that Democrats are struggling to enthuse their voters with a “save Obamacare” message.

“I know what people in the individual and small group markets are paying,” he said. “Who can afford that? And remember, when they passed Obamacare, every single thing they told us about that law, the Democrats, turned out to be false. I call them the eight lies. We have talked about this before. Like your plan, keep your plan. Like your doctor, keep your doctor. Premiums will decline. They will decline on average $2,500. They even been told us the Web site was going to work. They told us that your information was secure. They told us these co-ops — so, everyone knows that is a mess. And yet Democrats want to expand all that, build on all that?”

Jordan said that President Trump’s first two years in the White House had given the American people a perfect contrast between Republicans and Democrats.

“I said this the other day,” Jordan said. “The left, they applaud Kaepernick when he disrespects the flag. They embrace Cuomo when he says America was never that great. They cheer on Maxine Waters when she says go harass the president, go harass anyone who supports the president.

“Contrast that vision and that thinking with the record of — I mean, just last month, we had 250,000 job growth, wage growth up 3.1 percent, economy growing at 4 percent, lowest unemployment in 40 years, Gorsuch and Kavanaugh both on the court,” he continued. “We’re out of the Iran deal. The embassy is in Jerusalem. The hostages have come home from North Korea. You could just keep rattling off.”

As of Tuesday night, the country will know if voters were unwise enough to hand power back to the Democrats. But even if we do have to suffer through two years of Pelosi as Speaker, we can at least breathe easily knowing their congressional control will be limited and checked by the Senate and the White House. It’s far from ideal, but hey, that’s Washington.

    • you do not think they tried? I do. We had some good decent guys there, but the powerful that have been in office for years and years are in charge and have been since before Bush left. I am an Independent, but I think we can look forward to some really rough times. I also live where many of the 4000 plus, and all the others that will come. The truly needy among us will pay the price here.

    • It’s hard to keep promises when the Democrats vote no on it. The good news is Republicans will be able to block any of Democrats stupid moves like trying to get rid of ICE. We can pull the old Harry Reid moves and just sit on them. Karma’s a bitch!

    • Just How could the Republican keep their promises when Democrats in Red like Song Bird McCain rolled out of his sick bed to keep Obama’s Legacy going!! McCain spent eight years in the Senate kissing Obama’s behind with Jeff Flake kissing McCain’s. Obama tamed the Media using Federal Laws from the 1920’s. All the public got is Pure Resistance from the Democrat Party, for they were use to getting rich from Obama Corruption. Obama had the fix in before Trump was sworn in Office. Wake Up Grizz or are you a Democrat or Rino?

    • You mean if democrats weren’t so stupid and so greedy for handouts of someone else’s money and property. If only there was a cure for stupidity other than death.

  1. If the Democrats had not obstructed everything they tried to do the promises would have been kept. The fault is yours and the borders are in danger and the illegal immigration and healthcare will be in worse trouble. Way to go lying Democrats .

  2. The failure to move the country forward and make it great again lies with Democrat Obstruction and RINO Republicans lacking the guts to do the right thing. The result has been the failure of total repeal of OBummer Care, the failure to deport illegals, and the failure to build the wall.

  3. What needs to be understood is the Republican Establishment has as much invested in preserving the status quo as do the Demorats. The Republican Establishment made promises in 2016 they never expected or intended to keep because they never expected Trump to win. They expected to be dealing with Hillary as President, therefore they wouldn’t be able to ‘keep” those promises.

  4. Grizz Mann, well when your family is harmed because of open borders, sanctuary city obstructions, reduction if not elimination of police services to protect Americans, jobs are lost and advancement of America is placed in regression, all due to the democrats obstructionist actions (voluntary), just pucker up buttercup and endure your fate.

  5. 2020 will be the election that flips the House. We will see in the next two years just how evil the Democrat Socialist Party has become.

  6. They WERE unwise enough! But, Pelosi isn’t assured of the Speaker’s chair. A lot of the new younger Dims campaigned against being Speaker.

    • Let’s hope she doesn’t regain the Speakers chair. That will really make her unhappy, and that is something that will make me happy.

  7. Beacon Roofing Supply fired Theodora Mitchell in Santa Clarita but Theodora now earnes 7340 working with VCA from home

  8. Stop apologizing, it’s not like Trump had the whole government behind him. I’m shocked he’s had as much success as he’s had. It’s been an uphill battle and I give it to Trump, I would have laid the F-Bomb on everybody and walked. And I’m not near the age as he. The democrats are bound and determined to make everybody INCLUDING CITIZENS irritable with their little games and scare tactics. Build the freaking wall and get back on track.

  9. Right-wing extremist jackass . Ugh . The kind that makes America the laughing stock the civilized world . Dead wrong on all the issues . Neanderthal moron .(But I shouldn’t insult Neanderthals who were much smarter ) . The Republican party and Trump will destroy America if they are not stopped soon . They want to “take America back ” – right back to the dark ages !

    • Right…and the leftists push us to the heaven, right? Come on…you don’t know what are you talking about…just look out of your community little bit far…take a trip out of country and you will see,how the global socialism went down…

  10. You did alot in the 2yrs so far and we are proud of you. You keep helping Trump moving ahead and all of us will be moving with you. Peace be with you. You are doing fine. and I hope you get house speaker.!!!

  11. I don’t believe the reps were responsible for the lack of voting by the people. We have seen for two years what Trump has accomplished, and it’s been awesome. The idiots in Calif. still voted in all the morons they had before including Newsom the worst of the worst. At some point, the people have to take responsibility. They do the voting.

  12. dumbocrats and anyone who believes what dumbocrats have to say or sell are all GIGANTIC SHITHEADS WHO STILL BELIEVE IN THINGS LIKE THE TOOTH FAIRY, ELVES, THE EASTER BUNNY & SANTA CLAUSE. Most dumbocrat legislators fall squarely into the category of what many people call INSANE. The definition of insanity is, noun, the state of being seriously mentally ill; madness. Synonyms: mental illness, madness, dementia; More lunacy, instability; mania, psychosis;
    informal craziness, extreme foolishness or irrationality. Plural noun: “it might be pure insanity to take this loan”, synonyms: folly, foolishness, madness, idiocy, stupidity, lunacy, silliness. According to Psychology Today AND a view held by an actual EXPERT NAMED Einstein, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result, perfect examples Trying to fix cities like Chicago, Detroit. Their fix is ALWAYS POUR MORE MONEY INTO THE CITY TO FIX IT, IT NEVER WORKS.
