It’s a Déjà Vu feeling for Republicans as three Senators from their own party have announced their opposition to their Obamacare repeal bill.
On Monday Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) said that she will be opposing the GOP’s latest effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
She joins colleagues GOP Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) who have already announced their opposition.
“Health care is a deeply personal, complex issue that affects every single one of us and one-sixth of the American economy. Sweeping reforms to our health care system and to Medicaid can’t be done well in a compressed time frame, especially when the actual bill is a moving target,” Collins said in a statement.
This is the GOP’s last chance to repeal Obamacare without needing Democratic votes. Starting October first, the Senate will need a majority 60 votes to pass legislation.
