Fox Host Not Amused by Graham’s Joke About Health Care Flop: ‘There’s Where We Are’

BY:

Fox News host Melissa Francis did not seem amused Tuesday by Sen. Lindsey Graham's (R., S.C.) flippant answer about the failure of the GOP bill to repeal Obamacare.

Graham fielded questions from reporters in the aftermath of the collapse of the Senate Republican bill called the Better Care Reconciliation Act, after four Republicans announced they would vote no on it.

"Would you like to have seen more from the president on this?" one reporter asked.

"You know, I'd like to see a bill that people actually liked," Graham said, drawing laughs from the press.

"I've got to go," he added, and reporters continued to chuckle.

When the broadcast threw back to Francis, she repeated Graham's remarks about wanting to see a bill that people liked.

"I'm so sorry. I thought they were in charge of writing those bills. And then everybody laughed and walked away," she said in resignation. "There's where we are."

A new plan to simply repeal Obamacare now and then craft a replacement later also would appear to be dead in the water after three Republicans announced their opposition to that as well.
