Krauthammer to GOP: 'Pick a Damn Plan' for ObamaCare Replacement
Charles Krauthammer has strong advice for congressional Republicans who are reportedly divided on which drafts of health care legislation would be best to replace ObamaCare.
"The Republicans are missing the point. They need one plan," Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight. "So, pick a damn plan, since nobody knows for sure which one is ultimately going to be the best."
Krauthammer said Republicans cannot be "counting your pennies" at a time when they can finally draft a repeal-and-replace bill that a sitting president will sign.
He said they must make sure there will not be very many people hurt by the replacement, in that they would lose coverage.
The issue, he said, "Is so complicated, as President Trump has discovered, that nobody can predict with accuracy which of the plans will produce the outcome you want."
A unified Republican Party with a single plan will produce leverage for a "political case" to be made against the Democrats, he said.
