Charles Krauthammer said that Republicans' confirmation that an ObamaCare replacement vote will be called on Thursday is a "cause for celebration."

Peter Doocy broke the news during "The Story with Martha MacCallum" on Wednesday, and Krauthammer called it "good news."

He said the announcement was a "major achievement" for Congressional Republicans.

"This [Trump] administration, working with this Congress, has managed to achieve in less than four months what the Republicans were unable to do in six years," he said.

He also said several Republicans like Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, who called for a guarantee of coverage for preexisting conditions, were not "sincere" in their past repeal votes.

Krauthammer said Upton and others who voted for repeal in the past knew then-President Obama would veto the legislation.

But he said such factors did not take much away from the long-awaited "consensus" on a replacement.

"This is a cause for celebration," he said.
