Former Republican presidential candidate and Atlanta radio show host Herman Cain told FOX News' Martha MacCallum on Tuesday that the GOP needs to unite behind the same platform and nominate more diverse group of candidates, in order to win elections.
"The Democrats, they stick together even if they're wrong, even if they lie, at least they all do it consistently, just look at Obamacare as an example," said Cain on "America's Newsroom" this morning. "The Republican Party does have a branding problem. They've had one for years."
As an example, Cain spoke about a recent email sent out by the Republican National Committee (RNC) with a list of possible 2016 presidential contenders. The list, according to the Atlanta businessmen, included only white politicians with a significant presence in the media.
And lastly, Cain blamed the media for not reporting on the Affordable Care Act (ACA or Obamacare) alternative, the Empowering Patients First Act (H.R. 2300), authored by Georgia Republican Tom Price in 2009. The legislation was first introduced in 2009, and every year since then, but was never brought to the floor for debate.
Cain pointed out that Republicans need to consistently and across the board unite behind the H.R. 2300, something they have failed to do throughout the debate on health care.
