Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., pushed back Sunday on the Department of Justice’s lawsuit to overturn the Affordable Care Act, calling its argument "flimsy."

In an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press," Alexander said he was “disappointed” with the Trump administration’s move to undo Obamacare.

“I thought the Justice Department argument was really flimsy,” he said.

"What they're arguing is that, when we voted to get rid of the individual mandate we voted to get rid of Obamacare,” Alexander said. 

"I don't know one single senator that thought that."

Alexander also weighed in on his home state’s reopening move, praising GOP Gov. Bill Lee’s slogan as “if in doubt, get a test.” 

“Tennessee has tested more than most states,” he said. “About 3.6% of the population … hopes to be at seven by the end of May,” he said of the effort.
