Sen. Ron Johnson said Sunday he won’t vote for the chamber’s healthcare reform measure – because it doesn’t "fix the problem."

In an interview on NBC News’ "Meet The Press," the Wisconsin Republican complained the GOP’s repeal and replace Obamacare efforts in both the House and Senate so far have fallen far short.

"The reason I left the life I loved in Wisconsin was to fix this problem and what I find so disappointing is these bills aren't going to fix the problem," he said. "They're doing the same old Washington thing -- throwing more money at the problem."

"What I'd like to do is… get the information and go through the problem solving process and reduce these… premiums that have been driven up because of Obamacare mandates — so let's fix the problem...​"

Johnson said he believes voters expect more from their lawmakers.

"I have a hard time believing Wisconsin constituents or myself will have enough time to properly evaluate this for me to vote for a motion to proceed," he said. "So I have been encouraging, leadership… the White House, anybody I can talk to for quite sometime: Let's not rush this process. Let's have the integrity to show the American people what it is, show them the truth."
