Rep. Jordan: GOP United on Keeping Spending Cuts

Sunday, 13 Oct 2013 12:23 PM

By Amy Woods

House Republicans will not break the spending caps implemented in 2011 in order to reopen the government and get a federal budget passed, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan said on "Fox News Sunday."

"I don't see any way that you'd see Republicans go for that," Jordan said. "We are not going to increase spending. The sequester's been one of the good things that has happened, one of the few things we have done where we've actually controlled spending somewhat in this town."

He said his members of his party "get the sense" Democrats don't want to negotiate after Republicans writing and submitting 11 bills funding all or part of the government.

"We have compromised and given them all kinds of reasonable pieces of legislation that [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid won't even debate, let alone pass," Jordan said. "You can't keep spending money you don't have. We can't keep raising the limit on an already-maxed-out credit card."

He also said House Republicans are united on delaying the Affordable Care Act.

"Obamacare, the way it's being implemented, is unfair," he said. "Somehow, we're the bad guys because we're standing up for the simple concept of fairness. This is why people elected us. This is a simple argument about fairness, and we're going to keep making it."
