GOP Rep to Ali Velshi: Someone Should Go to Senate and ‘Snatch a Knot in Their Ass’

In the wake of the Senate narrowly passing the motion to proceed on the health care debate but blocking the Obamacare repeal and replace plan, Rep. Buddy Carter (R-GA) appeared on MSNBC this afternoon to take some shots at Republicans in the Senate for not fully embracing getting rid of the Affordable Care Act.

Speaking to host Ali Velshi (prior to the Senate rejecting a straight repeal of Obamacare this afternoon), Carter took issue with some GOP senators who voted for a repeal bill in 2015 when Barack Obama was in the White House but won’t now when it will be signed by President Trump.

“The only thing that’s changed is we’ve got a president who will actually sign that law now, unlike the previous president––Obama––who did not sign the law,” Carter stated. “So it baffles me to think that someone is not in favor of it.”

After a bit more discussion about the potential differences between what the Senate may pass and the House-passed American Health Care Act, the Georgia lawmaker remarked that he agreed with Trump for singling out Sen. Lisa Murkowski for voting against the motion to proceed.

“I think it’s perfectly fair,” he noted. “Let me tell you, somebody needs to go over into that Senate and snatch a knot in their ass.”

Not sure what “snatch a knot in their ass” means, but it doesn’t sound good.
