Calls Instead For “Bipartisan Consensus”
The Arizona Senator’s explanation simple and spot on: saying “without which a policy that affects one-fifth of our economy and every single American family will be subject to reversal with every change of administration and congressional majority”.
A longer statement on the Senator’s website (which we’ve linked to here), outlines a path forward:
“Senators Alexander and Murray have been negotiating in good faith to fix some of the problems with Obamacare. But I fear that the prospect of one last attempt at a strictly Republican bill has left the impression that their efforts cannot succeed. I hope they will resume their work should this last attempt at a partisan solution fail.”
Does This Mean The Bill Is Kaput?
In other words, this’d be a good time to offer encouragement and support to Senators Collins, Murkowski, Paul, Capito: give ’em a call!
