Governor LePage Scheduled To Meet With VP Pence

Governor LePage Scheduled To Meet With VP Pence”

Collins is in ME attending events held by home care and housing associations.

This announcement shouldn't come as too big of a shock, given that Collins also voted against Obamacare repeal this past July.

The previous effort by the White House to move Collins on an Obamacare repeal was unsuccessful and it's unclear if bringing LePage into the effort will fare much better.

According to the vice president's schedule, LePage and Pence will talk about health care and tax reform.

"I'm leaning against the bill", the Maine Republican said after listing a series of serious deficiencies in the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill. "The premiums would be so high they would be unaffordable".

"I'm reading the fine print on Graham-Cassidy", Collins said. King, an Independent, is against it.

A national women's advocacy group is taking to the sky to urge Republican U.S. Sen.

Last month, the governor said Senators Susan Collins and Angus King fail to understand the "disastrous effects" of Medicaid expansion on people in Maine.

Republican senators have until September 30 to push a repeal bill through. With unanimous Democratic opposition and 52 seats, the GOP can only afford to lose two votes - Pence would provide the tie-breaking tally if the count is 50-50.

Rand Paul, or whoever votes against Hcare Bill, will forever (future political campaigns) be known as "the Republican who saved ObamaCare". Despite being as anti-Obamacare as anyone in the Senate, he doesn't believe the new bill goes far enough to replace it, calling it "Obamacare Lite".

President Trump tweeted on Friday to intimidate Republicans who push against his effort to revive the GOP healthcare overhaul.
