Chuck Todd: Republicans ‘Have Maybe a Week’ to Pass Health Care Bill After Recess
Chuck Todd: Republicans ‘Have Maybe a Week’ to Pass Health Care Bill After Recess (The Washington Free Beacon)
"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd said Wednesday on NBC's "Today" that Republicans are running out of time to get their health care bill through the Senate.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) originally set the July 4 recess as the deadline to pass the bill, but he announced Tuesday that Senate Republicans would delay the vote until after the holiday. Todd said that Republicans have a small window of time to pass the legislation.
"I don't think time is on the side of Mitch McConnell," Todd said. "I think they have maybe a week to get this done after they get back, or they are going to have to admit they are going to have to work with the Democrats."
