Susan Collins leaning ‘no’ on Graham-Cassidy Obamacare bill

by Robert King
September 22, 2017

Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, is leaning against supporting the Republicans’ latest Obamacare overhaul bill due in part to it stripping protections for people with pre-existing conditions, according to a published report.

If she does come out in opposition, which has been widely expected, then she would be the second Republican to publicly oppose the measure, joining Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. Republicans would not be able to lose any more members as they need 50 votes to advance the measure, with Vice President Pence casting the deciding vote.

Collins told the Portland, Maine, Press Herald Friday that she is leaning “no” on the overhaul bill that eliminates the Medicaid expansion and turns Obamacare funding into block grants for states.

Collins has previously opposed every other Obamacare repeal effort that the GOP has brought up this year, and was widely expected to oppose this one as well. However, she has not publicly declared a position yet on the overhaul bill deemed by Republicans as their last shot at repealing Obamacare.

    Orange Blossom promised everyone – EVERYONE would have Health Care, no ifs, ands or buts!! And he said the cost would be CHEAP!! Where the hell is that PROMISE today? Nothing less is acceptable – nothing!!!!!

      LOL..there was nothing wrong with our healthcare, before Obunghole screwed it up.

      1. Bob says:

        Before Obama came along, there were 18 million fewer people with Health Care and you were probably one of them, cuttie. Now where is this inexpensive, wonderful Health Care FOR ALL that Orange Blossom promised? Let me guess – it’s coming when Mexico builds the Wall, right cuttie!!! Ah, the “Uneducated.” Nothing like em!!!!!

        1. gvette says:

          LOL…Bob, do you know the difference between healthcare, and health insurance? Show me in the constitution where it says the government can force you to buy something you don’t want or need. See, you DemonFUCKS have to have someone run your lives for you. On your own, you’re not bright enough!

          1. Bob says:

            Are you really as DUMB as you sound, bunky? Does the Constitution say YOU have to purchase an auto license? How about auto insurance? How about Life Insurance? You’re really not too bright, yourself, skippy! If you did some real research, you’d find Hillary was not involved in the uranium sale to Russia. Oh well, that’s why you’re called “Uneducated,” skippy!!!

      2. Bob says:

        It’s good that you have so much time on your hands to post you diarrhea running down your chin, bunky. If you had a brain, you’d be dangerous, but we don’t have to worry about that. Obviously, you got your education from Chump University and your diploma came from Walmart. Are you a Tax Evader, Pervert and Draft-Dodger like the Nazi, skippy???

        1. gvette says:

          Bob. I know you’re an asshole, but your post just makes that clear. Remember, like Hitler, it is nothing more then control.

          1. Bob says:

            Please continue to let the diarrhea run down you chin, bunky. It looks good on an Uneducated and Low IQ like you. You’re backing a LOSER and riding a dead horse. Soon Mueller will nail Orange Blossom’s hide to the wall and you’ll be squealing like a pig. Adios, skippy!!!!

          2. gvette says:

            The loser was Obunghole! The one that doubled the debt. The one that had the lowest GDP growth in modern times. Not very bright, are you Bob!

          3. Bob says:

            Pull your head out of you butt, take a deep breath and see what’s going on in the Wprld, bunky. Then pick up your coloring book and go play in the traffic. Better yet, change you Kremlin address so people can’t find you, skippy!!!

          4. gvette says:

            Bob, it was your pal Killary with the connection to Russia! She’s the one that facilitated to sale of uranium to Russia. It was Billy boy getting paid millions for speeches in Russia! Typical DemonFUCK. You hate facts!

          5. Bob says:

            You must be some sort of a Russian Troll nut cake as a Low IQ Uneducated to try to pass that baloney. Any one who has done any research knows Hillary wasn’t even involved in the uranium sale, so maybe its time you stopped DUMB, skippy!!!

    RHINO as always…..She should have a big D after her name

  • mort_f says:

    No surprise here. A leading RINO. What you will not, actually never, see is an alternative from her. The Republican ‘majority’ is a majority in name only. Far too many are anti-Trump, anti-American, only pro-establishment sycophants.

  • bobnstuff says:

    The horse is dead, stop beating it. The republicans will have to work with the Democrats if they want to repeal and replace the ACA.

    Maybe we should pass the law Trump wanted in the first place.

    “I like the mandate. Here’s where I’m a
    little bit different. I don’t want people dying in the streets,” Trump
    told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on February 20 during a televised town hall
    event. Trump
    has taken fire from his fellow Republicans for suggesting that
    “everybody’s got to be covered” and that “the government’s gonna pay for
    it” as he said in a September interview with CBS’ “60 Minutes” — a
    proclamation his rivals have tried to use against Trump to suggest he is
    in favor of government-run health care.

    1. gvette says: one was dying in the streets before Omuslim care, Bob!

      1. bobnstuff says:

        No they slowly died at home since the hospital only had to stabilize them and then could through them out to die at home.

        1. gvette says:

          You’re full of shit, as always Bob!
