Eric Cantor: No Excuses Now — 'Republicans Are in Charge'

MSNBC's "Morning Joe"

Washington's Republicans have no excuses left for not pushing through priority issues such as a reform/replace bill on Obamacare, as "our party has won everything now," former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said Thursday.

"It's a very interesting time in Washington, to see that there is a chance to make some progress," the former Virginia GOP lawmaker, who had risen to the majority leader spot before losing his seat in the 2014 primary election, told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" program.

"There are some commitments and desires to do things on behalf of Republicans and Senate that I know have been in place so many, many years. Donald Trump comes in with this force behind him to shake up this town and to start getting things done."

He said he agrees with House Speaker Paul Ryan that the party will be unified behind Trump.

Trump has said in his first 100 days in office, he wants to do away with several regulations, but there could be a test on Obamacare, but the repeal bill is already there, said Cantor.

"It's the one that President [Barack] Obama vetoed," said Cantor. "They could pick that right backup, pass it. What needs to be attached to that is a replace bill."

Meanwhile people are taking Trump seriously, and he has a broad commitment to the nation's working people and states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and North Carolina, where he pulled out general election wins.

"It you take something away from them, that's going to be a fall down on his commitment," said Cantor. "Again, so that is the general commitment that he's got. Again, having been on the Hill for a long time and not having the ability to coalesce behind a replace bill, that's going to be the challenge and as I said before, there's no excuses now. Republicans are in charge."
