Scott Taylor: Healthcare Bill Failure Doesn't Help 'Folks That Are Hurting'

Rep. Scott Taylor, R-Va., on Friday lamented the failure of his party's healthcare bill in the Senate Thursday night.

"This morning I woke up to the news, I'm certainly disappointed," he told CNN. "What happened last night doesn't help the folks that are hurting under this law."

He added, "Hopefully, we can work together and get something that addresses those issues."

When asked if he thought there was "turmoil" in the White House preventing President Donald Trump from implementing his policies in Congress, Taylor answered, "at times, yes."

He continued, "I know there was efforts of course from the White House to try and get some of these senators, of course, to get on board."

Taylor added that "relationships matter" between Congress and the White House.

"No matter where you are, no matter what form, whether it's business or private sector or in government, relationships matter. So there's no question about that, that some of that could hinder getting successful legislation passed."

"If we want to do big thing here in Congress, of course, we need a partner in the White House, and certainly in the staff to help corral some of those folks and move things along, so there's no question if they're distracted in some way and not focused on doing things for the American people, then that could obviously hinder the ability to get successful legislation passed."
