The Nebraska senator said that Republicans should repeal and then replace Obamacare.

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) said on CNN on Sunday that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should cancel August recess to work full-time on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

Sasse said that Republicans should first pass a delayed repeal that would give them time to come up with a replacement plan.

“Let’s do the repeal, then let’s try to get 60 out of 100 senators. Let’s bring everybody in a room. Let’s do this full-time, 18 hours a day, 6 days a week. Let’s cancel the August state work period, and let’s do it in full public view,” Sasse said.

“The American people deserve that,” he added.
