Following Sen. Susan Collins’, R-ME, announcement on Monday evening that she would oppose the Graham Cassidy bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act, killing the latest attempt in the Senate to follow through on a key campaign promise of President Trump, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said he is not done fighting for the bill.
Graham called for the bill to come to the Senate floor even if it will fail, during a CNN Town Hall event featuring himself, Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-LA, and two backers of a single-payer healthcare system, Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, and Amy Klobuchar, D-MN.
“We’re going to press on. It’s OK to vote. It’s OK to fall short, if you do, for an idea that you believe in,” Graham said.
