Bob Corker admits GOP overreached on Obamacare

Updated

Sen. Bob Corker, R-TN, said on Fox News Sunday that the GOP’s “overreach” in trying to defund Obamacare should be a warning to Democrats as theyfight to undo the devastating spending cuts known as sequestration.

“Republicans started off in a place that was an overreach, to defund a law that was central to the president’s agenda was not achievable,” he said. “Now Democrats are I think getting too cute. They now are overreaching.”

Corker was also less hopeful than some of his Senate colleagues about prospects for a deal, telling Chris Wallace, “”I think things are not moving now. The last 24 hours have not been good.”
