Gowdy Won’t Give Up, Slams McConnell, “Best We Can Do Is A Skinny Plan?”


It goes without saying that many conservative lawmakers were not pleased with the result of the most recent vote by the Senate on a bill to repeal portions of the Affordable Care Act.

Republican Congressman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina went further than this, and criticized top Republican lawmaker such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for attempting to pass such a rushed and woefully incomplete bill in the first place.

Stated Rep. Gowdy during an appearance on Fox & Friends about how the Congress needs to go about getting rid of Obamacare, “It’s not going to be done with 24 hours’ notice and a bill that has the word ‘skinny’ in it.”

He also diagreed with Sen. McConnell who stated after the failed vote that “it’s time to move on” regarding eliminating Obamacare. Commented Trey, “We’ve got to go back. 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.”

 Rep. Gowdy added, “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?” Do you agree with Gowdy?
