Chuck Todd: "Mitch McConnell Is Done," He Has No Political Capital Left


Chuck Todd on the failure of the Senate Republican 'skinny' Obamacare repeal effort. The Meet the Press host said he believed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is "done."

Todd said attempts to repeal Obamacare were good when former President Obama was in power, but now the Republican party is "crashing."

CHUCK TODD, NBC NEWS: So that's what you're going to see. A bill of fixes in some form or another because they have to. The issue in rural America is serious. The issue of insurance companies walking away from these small markets is serious. They're walking away due to the uncertainty in the law. So that's where I think realistically this goes. And I think even -- look, Mitch McConnell is done. I really believe it. I don't think he has the energy at all to try to do this because I think he used up a lot of political capital in his own conference to get the 49 Republicans he did get to go along with what he did and I don't think he has the capital to do this again.
