As Republicans plan to hold a vote on their Obamacare replacement called the American Health Care Act, drama and controversy has surrounded the bill in question. With dozens of Republican lawmakers opposing the bill, much to the chagrin of Donald Trump, one host on Fox is not happy about it.

Fox on Trumpcare

After eight years of attacking the Affordable Care Act, Republicans finally have a shot at repealing and replacing former President Barack Obama's signature piece of legislation. With Donald Trump in the White House and the GOP in majority-control of Congress, it seemed as if conservatives would get their wish with a complete overhaul of the American health care system.

However, the replacement plan has been universally panned, with Democrats and Republicans opposing it for different reasons, while the Congressional Budget Office predicted that nearly 26 million people would lose coverage over the next decade if the bill became law. Republicans were forced to postpone a vote on the bill from Thursday until Friday, which might not even go through after the New York Times reported that the party still doesn't have the support. These issues were discussed during a March 24 segment on the Fox Business Channel.

Fox host Stuart Varney spoke with Fox News contributor Juan Williams about the struggle in the GOP regarding health care, and the normally Trump-friendly host was not willing to play nice.

"At this moment in time, the Republican Party is a disgrace," Varney said. "We elected the Republicans to 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," he admitted, before adding, "They can't do it. They can't govern."

Current status

With a vote scheduled to take place on Friday afternoon, House Speaker Paul Ryan reportedly "rushed" to the White House to inform Donald Trump that the GOP doesn't have enough support within their own party to ensure the bill would pass.

As of press time, it's unlikely that the replacement plan will head to the Senate.
