Meghan McCain: 'Arbitrary Deadlines' Will Sink GOP Health Care Bill
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said the vote on the Republican ObamaCare overhaul plan has been delayed until after July 4, but now Sen. John Thune (R-SD) is saying they are trying to have a draft of the GOP health care bill by Friday.
On "Outnumbered" today, Meghan McCain said setting arbitrary deadlines won't help the legislation get passed by the Senate.
She said she thinks a July 4 deadline is a "pipe dream," as there remains a significant divide between conservatives and moderates in the Republican Party.
"Why are we putting these arbitrary timelines on this? I legitimately don't understand it, because I think it's helping sink this," McCain said.
Kennedy agreed and pointed out that the bill still needs a lot of work, because no one seems to be happy with it.
"It's a Republican bill, and Republicans hate it," Kennedy said. "You've got two factions, and they all essentially despise the bill."
She said the issue is further complicated by the fact that former President Obama crafted the Affordable Care Act so that it's nearly impossible to repeal and replace without collapsing health care and insurance.
