Graham: I Support Repealing The Individual Mandate

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) joined Fox News Radio host Brian Kilmeade to discuss tax reform and a recent meeting with President Trump and Vice President Pence.

  • GRAHAM: “I met with her [Senator Susan Collins] and the President [on] Thursday with [Senators] Lamar Alexander and Bill Cassidy to talk about the tax bill.” 00:49
  • GRAHAM: “Repealing the individual mandate, I definitely support. It would create money to help pay for the tax bill... So if it [the individual mandate] is a tax, which I think it is and the Court held it was, we certainly can repeal it as part of a tax reform bill.” 00:56
  • GRAHAM: “The message of President Trump resonated to the point that he was able to beat the Clinton machine [and] sixteen primary opponents. So you’ve got to give the President some credit for having a message and an agenda that people like. I think the agenda is a damn good one.” 8:04
