Fiery conservative Erick Erickson says the proposed Senate healthcare fix is "a solution in search of a problem" and must be roundly rejected on Capitol Hill.

"Let's concede two points. First, let us concede that the Senate Republicans' healthcare plan does not repeal Obamacare. Despite years of promises, the GOP has no intention of repealing Obamacare," Erickson wrote Tuesday on his blog TheResurgent.com.

"Second, let us concede that the Senate Republican healthcare plan, though it does not repeal Obamacare, does promise to go in a better direction. It does not repeal, but it does go in a better direction."

Erickson said the Senate bill "does not control costs or lower costs for Americans. It keeps most of the things people like about Obamacare, while stripping away what people dislike. The result is a bill that cannot pay for itself longterm and will further drive up the national debt …

"It is a tinkering and tickling of Obamacare. Importantly, however, the moment the GOP passes it, the Democrats will be able to blame shift. Every Obamacare problem will still exist after this legislation is passed, but suddenly the GOP will own all those problems …

"There is a problem called Obamacare, but the GOP's solution barely touches it. For that and all of the above reasons, Republican Senators should vote no."
