RNC's McDaniel: Graham-Cassidy Bill Essential for Healthcare

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

Republicans are working hard on delivering their campaign promise to repeal Obamacare, and the Graham-Cassidy reform bill is a good opportunity to deliver a state-specific plan to deal with the nation's healthcare coverage issues, Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel said Wednesday.

"Americans are failing under Obamacare," she told Fox News' "Fox & Friends." "It is failing. Forty-five percent of the counties in this country by 2018 will have one carrier or no carrier."

The bill presented by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy, McDaniel continued, delivers a state-centered, bipartisan solution and is the "best way to help the American people."

There are Republicans who are not backing President Donald Trump, noted show co-host Ainsley Earhardt, but McDaniel said the president represents change.

"It was a change election," she said. "They looked at a businessman, somebody who gets results, somebody who's been successful, and they said this is a person who's going to go to Washington and champion that average working family who isn't happy with what's happening in our nation's capital."

Trump is continuing to deliver on his promises, said McDaniel, but healthcare is a signature item that must be figured out for Americans, as it's failing.

"Seeing the Senate push time and time again to try to get this passed, I think, should give encouragement to Republicans and Americans across the country that Republicans recognize that we have to get things done, and we are fighting for everyone," said McDaniel.

She also said she understands why Trump has been working with Democrats like House and Senate Minority Leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, as Trump is being "results-driven" for what's best for Americans.

"He's saying we're going to get it done because at the end of the day, 'I need to deliver for the people who elected me,'" McDaniel said.

She admitted she is concerned about the 2018 midterms for the House and Senate, because if Republicans lose their majority hold they will not be voting on matters such as repealing Obamacare.

"You look at what [Sen.] Bernie Sanders has put forward," McDaniel said. "It will destroy our healthcare system, it will cost $32 trillion. It will decimate our country."
