Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needs to step down from his role if he cannot get the Obamacare repeal and replacement done, Rep. Mo Brooks said Friday.

"Unquestionably, the leadership at the top is responsible. The buck stops there, that's why you take on that kind of responsibility," the Alabama Republican told CNN's "New Day" program. 

"If Mitch McConnell cannot get the job done on this, how is he going to get the job done on the rest of President [Donald] Trump's agenda over the next 3-and-a-half years? As I see it right now, this is a killer.

"It's not necessarily anything bad about Mitch McConnell himself personally. But he's got a job to do, and if he can't do it then, as 'The Apprentice' would say, 'you're fired,' get somebody who can," Brooks said, referring to the reality show formerly hosted by Trump.

Senate Republicans must not stop until they get the repeal and replacement accomplished, he continued, and "I hope they won't quit. And if they're going to quit, well, then, by God, maybe they ought to start at the top with Mitch McConnell leaving his position and letting somebody new, somebody bold, somebody conservative take the reins, so that they can come up with a plan that can get through the United States Senate and serve the needs of the American people."
