Collins Shares Concerns about Graham-Cassidy Obamacare Repeal Bill

Sen. Susan Collins, R-ME, is concerned about the latest attempt by Republicans to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which could face a vote before it is scored by the Congressional Budget Office.

“That’s problematic. … That’s part of the problem with short circuiting the process,” Collins, who voted against the last repeal attempt, told reporters Monday.

The CBO announced it wouldn’t have a score for the bill put forward by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Bill Cassidy, R-LA, until next week.

Collins also said she had some concerns about the contents of the Graham-Cassidy bill.

“I’m concerned about what the effect would be on coverage, on Medicaid spending in my state. On the fundamental changes in Medicaid that would be made without the Senate holding a single hearing … and also what the effect would be on premiums,” she said.
