Trey Gowdy on Health Care: Best We Can Do Is 'Something Called Skinny?'
Rep. Trey Gowdy, (R-SC), slammed the Senate's failure to pass an Obamacare repeal and replacement bill, even the scaled back one that failed in the Senate last night.
"It's not going to be done with 24 hours notice and a bill that has the word 'skinny' in it," Gowdy told "Fox & Friends" on Friday.
The "skinny" repeal bill, which would only have repealed the most unpopular parts of Obamacare, was killed during a late night vote when Sen. John McCain, (R-AZ), and two other GOP senators voted no.
McCain explained that he did not trust the House to fix the flawed bill in conference.
"No, we've got to go back," Gowdy said when asked whether Congress should move on from health care. "It was a fundamental promise of the Trump campaign, and it desperately needs to be done."
"We set unrealistic expectations and then we never meet them, which leads to anger and frustration," the congressman analyzed.
"Our problem is that for seven years we've been telling folks what we're against and what we're opposed to and then we've had seven months to govern and the best we can come up with is a skinny plan on 24 hours notice?" Gowdy asked.
