Fox’s Stuart Varney: ‘The Republican Party is a disgrace’


Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney scolded the GOP on Friday for struggling to repeal and replace ObamaCare despite controlling the House, Senate and White House. 

“I personally believe at this moment in time the Republican Party is a disgrace,” Varney declared during an interview with Juan Williams, a Fox News and The Hill contributor. “I’m serious. I am serious.”

“We elected the Republicans who run the House, the Senate, and the White House and the very, very first thing that comes up on the legislative agenda they vote no, they’re split. They can’t do it. They can’t govern. I am really fit to be tied.” 

{mosads}Varney also took aim at Democrats for “chucking peanuts from the sidebar” in creating ObamaCare in the first place. 

“I’m really disgusted at the Democrats as well,” said Varney. “You guys totally screwed up ObamaCare. Totally screwed up 15 percent of the American economy. Now all you’re doing is just chucking peanuts from the sidebar there, and making fun of the mess you have made.”

“This is what happens when the government gets involved in healthcare. Get out of it!” 

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Friday the House will vote on the Republican healthcare plan despite serious uncertainty it has the votes to pass. 

“The House will be voting on the American Health Care Act, the current vote is scheduled for 3:30,” Spicer told reporters Friday afternoon.
