Three more GOP senators announce opposition to healthcare bill
The Hill by John Bowden
Republican Sens. Jerry Moran (Kan.), Shelley Moore Capito (W.Va.) and Rob Portman (Ohio) announced Tuesday afternoon that they will vote against the Senate GOP bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare in its current form.
Moran said in a statement on Twitter that the bill "missed the mark," adding that he was "pleased" that the vote on the Senate bill was delayed by Republican leadership until after the July 4 recess.
“The Senate healthcare bill missed the mark for Kansans and therefore did not have my support," Moran wrote. "I am pleased with the decision to delay the vote – now is the time to take a step back and put the full legislative process to work."
