Default Re: McCain's Memo

Looks like it's dead. Paul, McCain, and now Collins makes three.

Quote:
“Health care is a deeply personal, complex issue that affects every single one of us and one-sixth of the American economy,” Ms. Collins said in a statement, lamenting the rushed process and the content of legislation that has shifted as Republican leaders scrambled for votes. “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.”

Cruz, Lee, and Murkowski are also possible 'no' votes.

I wonder when the last time was that Collins, McCain, Cruz, and Paul were all united in opposing a piece of GOP legislation. How bad does it have to be to lose the most visible centrists, conservative, and libertarian figures of your own party?
