Laura Ingraham warned congressional Republicans that there will be "hell to pay" in the 2018 primaries if they fail on tax reform.

Congressmen's jobs will be on the line if they "see this opportunity and punt it," Ingraham told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday.

"The nation rejected the old ways of Washington in November," she commented, adding that the old rules "haven't served the working people well."

President Donald Trump last week supported a budget plan by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) that included hurricane relief funding. Trump said he hoped for a speedy passage of the bill to fund repair efforts after the recent storms. 

Pelosi and Schumer have "said the most hateful things" in the past about President Trump, Ingraham remarked.

"Donald Trump, I think, looked at the pieces on the chess board and he said, 'What move can I make?,'" Ingraham said, adding that his decision was "the best move I think he could make."

"If they're not willing to learn, if they're not willing to listen, then they need to go on and do something else with their lives."
