Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) criticized his own party on Tuesday, saying they hadn’t been clear enough about how they would replace ObamaCare.
His comments come as the latest Senate GOP effort to repeal and replace ObamaCare appears dead. Republicans are expected to discuss during a closed-door lunch if they want to move forward with a vote anyways.
“I will readily admit that the Republican Party has done a bad job of explaining what we’re for in terms of replace on ObamaCare,” Sasse said from the Senate floor. “We have done a bad job and we’ve not spoken with a clear voice.”
Sasse argued that the blame didn’t entirely lie with Republicans, accusing Democrats of telling “made-up stories” about GOP motives for wanting to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
“It would be great if we would have an honest debate around here instead of just these made-up stories that the Republican plans are in the interest of health insurance companies,” he said.
