A Florida congressman said not only will Republicans repeal Obamacare, but that voters still want the repeal.

Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis said on Fox’s “America’s Newsroom” that voters in his district “absolutely” want Obamacare repealed and replaced, despite recent polling that indicates the public view may be more favorable to fixing the current law rather than scrapping it entirely.

Mr. DeSantis said that his constituents told him it was their unhappiness with the replacement plan that caused them to withdraw support.

“Voters are frustrated with the product that was produced,” he said.

But Mr. DeSantis said he believes the party can come together on a replacement plan in the near future.

“I absolutely think we can pass something relatively soon,” he said.
