‘It’s Going to Fall Apart’: Bill Kristol Says GOP Obamacare Replacement Plan is Doomed

Joe Scarborough, Mika Brzezinski, and their guests spent the first hour of Morning Joe lacing into the American Health Care Act. The long-awaited Republican replacement for Obamacare has faced increasingly brutal criticism from the right and the left since it was unveiled earlier this week.

Show stalwart, Bill Kristol led the way.

“They are so intoxicated with the notion that Trump’s going to bless it,” he said with disbelief. “[As if] Trump has this magic potion that he just slaps on something and it goes sailing through.”

Scarborough noted that despite official confidence from the White House, President Donald Trump would likely have a hard time selling such an unpopular bill to individual members of Congress.

“These guys have their own careers,” said Scarborough. “They’re going to get it from all sides.”

At the end of the segment, Kristol issued a damning pronouncement.

“It’s going to fall apart,” he said. “There will not be a vote.”
