White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed Congress on Monday, saying members should stop thinking about midterm elections and focus on "solutions."

“They shouldn’t be thinking about next year’s midterm elections,” Conway said on "Fox and Friends."

“Here’s why: If you do your job well, you get reelected. If people feel like you’ve had a positive impact on their lives, and you put together the solutions, you put them forth and you pass them the way the president is doing, then your will get reelected,” she continued.



Conway also said lawmakers are not accustomed to moving at President Trump's pace.

“Washington moves at a very different pace than a disrupter and a businessman like Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpO’Malley tells Dems not to fear Trump Right way and wrong way Five things to know about the elephant trophies controversy MORE,” she said.

“When he says drain the swamp, it’s not just get rid of all of the crocodiles in the water that we don’t need there, it’s also moving at a different pace.”  

Conway’s comments come as Senate Republicans scramble to pass a healthcare reform bill, while the White House contemplates options to raise the debt ceiling.
