During an interview on a Friday showing of CNN’s “New Day,” Republican Rep. Mo Brooks suggested that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should step down if he can’t get ObamaCare repealed.
Brooks, currently a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Alabama, clarified that if they cannot successfully repeal then McConnell will not be able to fulfill various other objectives of the Trump campaign and agenda. He uses this to argue that it is irresponsible to continue in his post.
Brooks told CNN the following:
“Unquestionably the leadership at the top is responsible. The buck stops there, that’s why you take on that kind of responsibility. And if Mitch McConnell cannot get the job done on this, how is he going to get the job done on the rest of President Trump’s agenda over the next three-and-a-half years? As I see it right now, this is a killer … It’s not necessarily anything bad about Mitch McConnell himself personally. But he’s got a job to do, and if he can’t do it then, as ‘The Apprentice’ would say, ‘you’re fired,’ get somebody who can.”
