“If the president can’t get the bill passed, he will lose in the end,” Bolton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“If that’s the case, he’ll be out of the White House, and the Republicans will be in the minority.
“That’s going of course to be the big challenge for Republicans in the next Congress. “
The president is going to lose in a few weeks if we don’t get a repeal of Obamacare,” Bolton added.
“That’s going of course to be the big challenge for Republicans in the next Congress.
If the president and the House Republicans fail to get a health care bill passed this week, the president will be out in the Senate with a bill that would destroy the Affordable Care Act.”
The Hill reached out to Bolton for comment.
Bolton also said that if the health bill fails to pass, “it’s going down in history as the worst piece of legislation that ever came out of Washington.”
He said the bill is “so poorly designed that it’s a disaster.”
Bolton said that the legislation is designed to “give insurance companies the right to deny coverage to any American, regardless of preexisting conditions,” a provision that would lead to “massive, catastrophic, and unaffordable premiums” for millions of Americans.
Bolton added that the bill would also “destroy” Medicare, which would cause “the biggest transfer of wealth to the wealthy since the end of World War II.”
He also said the GOP bill would “give states unprecedented power to limit access to health care, and that they will be able to limit how much the federal government pays.”
