Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-SC, would not comment on the Senate’s Obamacare repeal and replace talks Thursday, saying that he doesn’t want to give the upper chamber advice.
“I try really hard not to give the Senate advice. They’re good to not give the House advice,” Gowdy said in an interview with CNN.
“We’ve got our own issues and problems on the House side so my energy should be spent sorting out our problems and not giving advice to the Senate on theirs.”
Gowdy added that there was some room to improve the House’s version of the health care bill.
“It impacts every single one of us and I am open to anyone’s ideas that makes it better and I wish we were in a less political environment where we could take on major challenges like healthcare and like entitlements,” said Gowdy.
