With more Republicans bailing on supporting the Senate's healthcare bill, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. said Monday evening the push to repeal and replace Obamacare needs a "new approach."

The GOP's Better Care Reconciliation Act was dealt a double blow when Sens. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., and Mike Lee, R-Utah, announced their opposition to it Monday. Four GOP senators do not support the legislation and its future is in jeopardy.

Sen. Graham took the opportunity to tout his healthcare proposal that would deliver power to the states in a series of tweets.

Graham talked about his healthcare idea last week, saying it would involve the government giving money to the states for them to build a healthcare platform.

"Obamacare was designed to collapse," Graham said.

"What I would like to do is take federal dollars, give them to governors with accountability and transparency, and say, 'you design a healthcare system.'"
