Geist to Durbin: Let’s Be Real, You’re Not Going to Work with McConnell to Repeal Even Part of ObamaCare

‘No, I doubt that we will with the most conservative members of the Republican caucus’

EXCERPT:

GEIST: "That’s not what they’re talking about in this bill. There is a major fundamental philosophical differences you would have with almost everything that's been put forward in this latest proposal. So let’s just be real for a second with our viewers and the people in your state, you will not get together with Mitch McConnell to help repeal even part of ObamaCare, are you?
DURBIN: "No, and I doubt that we will with the most conservative members of the Republican caucus, but there are moderates within the caucus, sensible people who want to sit down and talk about this. And when it comes to a Republican plan that devastates the Medicaid program and takes 22 million Americans off of health insurance, that’s an unacceptable premise. We need to make this system we have stronger and more responsive. And I think there is a sentiment and an appetite among Republicans and Democrats to do that."
