Sen Collins on GOP Health Care: ’23 Million People Losing Coverage Is Not a Bill I Can Support’

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), said she could not support the Republican health care bill resulting “in 23 million people losing coverage.”

Collins said, “I am not at all comfortable with the House bill, and I would oppose that bill. The Senate bill is still in progress. We haven’t seen the actual language. We’re trying to influence the direction of that, but a bill that results in 23 million people losing coverage is not a bill that I can support. So we’ll see what the Senate comes up with. It’s still being drafted.”
