Bobby Jindal wants to be more than the anti-Obamacare candidate, the Washington Examiner reports.
The Louisiana governor says he’s still weighing whether to run for the GOP presidential nomination, but he’s trying to distinguish himself from his potential opponents on one topic where there’s already broad agreement: repealing the Affordable Care Act.
Just like the other Republicans eyeing the White House, Jindal says he’d work to ditch the law if elected president. But he’s also the only one to introduce a detailed replacement plan — a fact he’s quick to note.
“To my knowledge, I’m the only candidate — or potential candidate — that’s actually offered a detailed plan,” Jindal said Thursday at a forum hosted by the Washington Examiner.
Jindal said other Republicans ought to do the same if they want to be viable candidates, suggesting that by failing to offer an alternative, they’re being less-than-forthcoming.
