Rep. Duffy: Democrats Would Rather Fail Than Work With Trump & Fix Things
During an exclusive interview on "The First 100 Days" last night, President Donald Trump said he was "disappointed" that congressional Republicans couldn't come together to pass an ObamaCare repeal and replace plan.
Despite the fact that he couldn't push through one of his signature campaign promises, Trump said he's confident that it will eventually get done.
He added, however, that he's been discouraged to see the lack of Democrats reaching across the aisle
Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) agrees with Trump that Democrats have been acting as "obstructionists" to his agenda.
"Democrats in the Senate are part of this 'resist movement,'" Duffy said on "Fox & Friends Weekend" this morning. "They will stop Donald Trump at every cost, even when there's good ideas on how we fix ObamaCare or how we repeal and replace it. They want nothing to do with giving a win to this president."
He said that's why, despite all of Trump's accomplishments in his first 100 days, it has been "frustrating" and "tough" to try to get any kind of bipartisan agreement.
Duffy said he's still hopeful, however, that all the wings of the Republican Party came come together next week and come to a consensus that will allow them to get the ObamaCare repeal and replacement plan through.
"I think that we're going to have the votes when we come back next week to get it done. I think there's a 60, 70, 80-percent chance we do it."
