GOP Sen. Collins 'leaning against' bill dismantling Obamacare

Should Collins and Murkowski vote against the bill, it would nearly certainly mark the end of the bill's chances, as Sen. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has said its estimates on that won't be ready next week.

Collins' vote is key.

Rand Paul, or whoever votes against Hcare Bill, will forever (future political campaigns) be known as "the Republican who saved ObamaCare". Bill Cassidy (R-La.) and Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.), which GOP leaders have been aiming to bring to the Senate floor next week. Senate Republicans can not afford to lose any more GOP defections, given the united Democratic resistance to the measure. If McCain is a "no" vote, then the fate of the bill could rest with Sen.

The Associated Press reported Collins' remarks in a tweet Friday. Without a full CBO score, which won't be available by the end of the month, we won't have reliable answers to any of those questions. Collins has said that she fears Graham-Cassidy might also take away protections for people with pre-existing conditions if insurers in certain states are allowed to charge more based on a person's health history.

The report goes on to claim that the IFAB, football's lawmakers, are expected to rubber-stamp the change next month. Effectively FIFA is about to de-politicise the poppy and as a result remove it from its forbidden list.

"I'm reading the fine print on Graham-Cassidy", Collins said. "The premiums would be so high they would be unaffordable".

Gov. Paul LePage, R-Maine, was scheduled to meet with Vice President Mike Pence in Washington on Friday morning. There's little evidence it has made a difference.

Because so many issues, from spending to health care, have come roaring into the Senate in the last few weeks-"I've been swamped", Collins says-that timetable has been scrapped. Her original plan had been to announce a decision by the end of September. As of Friday, Murkowksi's staff said the senator was undecided and planned to take the weekend to review the legislation. Bill Cassidy said that while states could develop their own programs, fair coverage for individuals with preexisting conditions would be required.
