Fox’s Jesse Watters Goes Off on ‘So-Called Republicans’ After Health Care Bill Failure

Fox News’ Jesse Watters said tonight both parties share the blame for health care failures, in the wake of the Senate last night rejecting the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.

“Republicans don’t have the policy chops that they’ve been bragging about for all these years,” he said. “They had seven years to come up with a replacement, and I don’t even know if anything they put out there actually lowered premiums.”

He also called out “so-called Republicans” who “chose big government over small government.”

Watters brought up Mitch McConnell and Mike Pence before getting around to John McCain:

“McCain, I believe, put the interests of his own constituents, I guess, down here, and sacrificed it against the altar of this mysterious bipartisanship agreement that never even existed. Premiums are out of control in Arizona and he voted against repealing Obamacare. It doesn’t make any sense to me. The only thing you can do now at this point: term limits. Term limits.”
