Sen. Ron Johnson says it's likely tax reform "is an easier lift" than quick passage of a bill this year to repeal and replace Obamacare.

In an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis on "The Cats Roundtable" Sunday, the Wisconsin Republican said a good healthcare bill is more important than "any old" legislation that'll attract 51 votes. His remarks start at the 10:37-minute mark.

"The tax reform is an easier lift,” Johnson said. “Healthcare is a problem because Obamacare is such a mess… I mean, it is collapsing insurance markets."

“We may have to break this into two pieces," he added. "Do kind of a real triage, a short-term measure to stabilize the markets, then take our time and actually have a healthcare bill that will restrain the cost in healthcare."

"That ought to be our primary goal," he said, "not just any old bill" that will get enough votes for passage.
