McCain: If GOP 'Blows' ObamaCare Replacement, It Helps Dems in 2018
The Trump administration is reportedly courting conservatives to get more support for the ObamaCare repeal and replace efforts, according to The Hill.
The House Republican ObamaCare replacement was floundering on Capitol Hill even before Monday’s damning report from the Congressional Budget Office.
Conservative Republicans, especially those in the Tea Party-influenced Freedom Caucus, have trashed the GOP's health bill, calling it “ObamaCare 2.0” and “ObamaCare Lite.”
On "Outnumbered" today, Meghan McCain said Republicans must come together on an ObamaCare plan, or they open the door for Democrats in the 2018 midterm elections.
She pointed out that approval ratings for ObamaCare are at an all-time high, and polls show that Americans are concerned about Republicans possibly "blowing it" with a replacement.
"Democrats don't have any message. They're in complete disarray," McCain said. "Do you know what blowing ObamaCare does? It gives them a message in the midterm elections."
Kennedy said she understands the need for "reconciliation" between the different wings of the Republican Party, but she also believes the "conservative cost-cutters" have a right to stand their ground and push for a superior ObamaCare replacement.
