MSNBC Host: Obamacare Has ‘Loads of Problems’


MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle admitted Thursday that there are "loads of problems with Obamacare" during her interview with Republican Rep. Jim Jordan (Ohio).

Ruhle first asked whether GOP efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare are being fueled solely by the fact that Republicans want to keep their campaign promises. Jordan responded by listing broken promises within the Affordable Care Act.

"Remember all the false statements we were told," Jordan said. "Like your plan, keep your plan. Like your doctor, keep your doctor. We were told premiums would go down … We were told the website was going to work. We were told the website, the information on there, was secure. We were told emergency room visits would decline, they've went up."

"You're right, sir," Ruhle interjected.

"This law is going to have to be repealed; let's do it as soon as possible. With the effective date in the future a year and half, that gives us time to put together the replacement," Jordan said, referencing the fact that if the Senate health care bill would pass, the effects would not be implemented until 2018.

"There are loads of Obamacare problems," Ruhle said. "That is one of the reasons President Trump won the election. It is also why Republicans control it all."
