Bob Woodward: Not Passing AHCA 'Better for Trump'

It might be better for President Donald Trump if the American Health Care Act bill does not pass, journalist Bob Woodward said Friday morning.

The veteran reporter, who reported on the Watergate scandal in 1972, said that Obamacare passed because Democrats came up with a compromise. With the AHCA, Republicans cannot agree with each other.

"You just can't build a building unless you agree on what the base is," Woodward told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program. "And so this probably doesn't pass… in a way, it's better for Trump that it doesn't so he can move on. Because this could be a giant mess, as they say Obamacare is."

The people who would pay more under the AHCA are the ones who can afford the least to do so, said Woodward, and "people are going to be following the money here and they are not going to like it."

"The argument for not voting for this is very, very strong," he added.
