Matt Schlapp on GOPers Trying to ‘Weasel Out’ of Obamacare Promises: ‘It’s Pitchfork Time’

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp expressed his deep frustrations with the GOP’s failed attempts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Discussing the Alabama senate primary battle between Luther Strange and Roy Moore and the rally President Trump had in support of Strange, Schlapp told Hannity guest-host Judge Jeanine Pirro that Strange’s struggle in this election is because he as seen as the “establishment candidate” with the $9 million campaign contribution from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell‘s PAC. The panel also discussed Trump’s remarks on the latest effort on health care reform that hit a probable dead end by Sen. John McCain.

“The one thing I give to the president here Judge is- he’s rewarding his friend,” Schlapp said. “Luther Strange has been a reliable vote for him, but [Trump] is right to take on this Congress. Seven-and-a-half years of talking about Obamacare and watching these senators weasel out of it, I think people across this country––it’s pitchfork time.”
