The remark was a near carbon copy of what Broun told the National Review on Monday.
"You still stand by those pretty extreme words?" Blitzer asked.
"Well, I've already told you today Obamacare is already destroying job creation," Broun said. "It's already hurting our economy. We've just got to put Obamacare on hold."
But Blitzer wouldn't let go of Broun's claim, ultimately giving the congressman a chance to "revise and amend" his words.
"Well, it's gonna take us off the edge economically. It's gonna destroy our economy," Broun said. "And it's going to push us into a total economic collapse of America. And that's exactly what I mean by, 'It's gonna destroy America.'"
