On “Fox and Friends,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) criticized fellow Republicans for their inability to repeal Obamacare after campaigning on this platform since the bill was signed into law by former President Barrack Obama. Now, six months into Trump’s presidency, Gowdy is angry that Republicans have not fulfilled their promises.
“Our problem is that for seven years we’ve been telling people 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 exclaimed.
“We gotta get better at telling people what we believe, why we believe it, and then persuading them that it’s right for the country,” he added. “We’ve had plenty of time to do it. We set unrealistic expectations and then we never meet them, which leads to anger and frustration.”
“We’ve had seven years to figure it out and the best we can come up with is something called ‘skinny,’” Gowdy criticized.
Gowdy was questioned about what he thinks Republicans should do after their failure to repeal Obamacare several times. In response, Gowdy said that Republicans should carry on the fight to repeal Obamacare because many of them were elected on this “fundamental” platform,
“[The repeal] desperately needs to be done. The Affordable Care Act is failing,” Gowdy asserted.
Furthermore, Gowdy gave his input on how he thinks Republicans should undergo this initiative.
“It’s not going to be done with 24 hours notice and a bill that has the word ‘skinny’ in it,” he contended.
