Jeb Bush calls on defunding Obamacare movement to use ‘self restraint’ in effort to make it better

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says his fellow Republicans should stop trying to defund Obamacare and instead let implementation of the law prove that it won’t work.

“Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work,” he said in an interview aired on ABC’s “This Week.”

Bush said Republicans also need to articulate an alternative to the reform law.

“I think the best way to repeal ObamaCare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative,” Bush said. “We could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles.”

“So have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically, a better approach to see the massive dysfunction.  But we don’t even hear about that because we’ve stepped on that message. And I think Republicans need to just take a step back and show a little self-restraint and let this happen a little more organically.”

“Well, you have to pay your obligations.  I do a lot of traveling overseas.  And when we have these spikes of political conversations that are not grounded in reality, the rest of the world looks at us as untrustworthy,” Bush said.

“That has implications, not just for us, a slowdown of economic activity, it has implications in the world because people have to count on the United States.  And if we’re behaving this way, it makes it harder to do so,” he said.

Bush told Karl that both political parties were at fault for the gridlock in Washington.

“I’m not blaming Republicans.  I think we have a systemic problem in Washington right now and the void of leadership is making it harder to get to a better place,” Bush said.

“The better place would be that with civility, have a dialogue about the bigger, more pressing issues and try to find common ground rather than use each instance of…a possible crisis to win a political point,” he said.
