The former Florida governor has some advice for his fellow Republicans.
During an interview for “This Week,” former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush encouraged the GOP to come up with an alternative and show some restraint if their aim was to repeal the president’s signature healthcare law.
“I think the best way to repeal Obamacare is to have an alternative; we never hear the alternative…we could do this in a much lower cost with improved quality based on our principles, free market principles…and two, show how Obamacare, flawed to its core, doesn’t work,” Bush said.
“So have a little bit of self-restraint. It might actually be a politically — a better approach to see the massive dysfunction,” he said, after being asked by ABC’s Jonathan Karl what his message would be for Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, who is vowing to do everything he can to repeal Obamacare.
Telling the current crop of Republicans to “have a little bit of self-restraint” is like asking a sugar-bombed eight year old to sit quietly and read The Odyssey, so if Mr. Bush has any thoughts about running for president in 2016, this kind of advice isn’t going to go over too well with the gang that wants to secede and impeach because Bo the dog took a crap on the South Lawn.
