Senators Weigh-In on Egypt Situation

Fox News Sunday guest anchor John Roberts spoke with Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and Jack Reed (D-RI) about the situation in Egypt.

 

Corker stressed that the role of the U.S. should be to calm all sides as they move through “treacherous environment.”

 

Reed said that the U.S. must insist the Egyptian military have a clear timeline of when they will have another democratically elected official in power.

 

He said that ultimately it will be the Egyptian’s task to come through this upheaval.

 

The senators also discussed if the president’s health care plan is in jeopardy following the delay of the the employer mandate?

 

Senator Reed said that he never thought Obamacare was ever in jeopardy, and that the Administration was wise to postpone.

 

However, Senator Corker said that, “There are many pieces of this or all that I want to see undone.” He believes that Obamacare exerts a great downward pressure on employment and may adversely affect jobs.

 

Senator Reed sits on the Armed Services Committee.  Senator Corker is the ranking member of the Foreign Affairs Committee.
