Corker laments ‘don’t work with Democrats’ comment

Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee is criticizing the House speaker for saying the president shouldn’t work with Democrats on health care, reports the Associated Press.

Corker tweeted Thursday, “We have come a long way in our country when the speaker of one party urges a president NOT to work with the other party to solve a problem.”

Corker was referring to comments Paul Ryan made to CBS warning against the idea of Donald Trump working with Democrats if Republicans can’t revive their health care legislation.

Ryan told “CBS This Morning” that if Trump works with Democrats, they will “try and change Obamacare and that’s not, that’s hardly a conservative thing.”

In an interview, Corker said: “It’s not the kind of thing the leader, speaker of the House should be saying.”
