"This has nothing to do with politics. It has nothing to do with donors." Gardner said on CBS's "Face The Nation," when asked about whether there was a rush to pass the ObamaCare repeal bill for political and not substantive reasons.

"It has everything to do with the people of this country who are suffering each and every day under a health-care bill that is failing to meet their needs, that's bankrupting them."

Gardner said the U.S. has a health-care system right now that has led to higher costs and fewer choices.

"It's not working. That's the reason why we need new policy. That's what this fight is about," he said. "It's to make sure that the American people are better off."

Gardner said he hopes lawmakers will come together to pass a health-care bill that works for the American people.

During the interview, Gardner also said there is still more information lawmakers need to learn about the latest ObamaCare repeal bill. 

Republicans have been racing toward a vote on health care this week, ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for approving the bill on a simple majority vote.
