LATEST SENATOR KING
WASHINGTON, D.C. – In a video posted on his Facebook page today, U.S. Senator Angus King (I-Maine) reacted to the release of the Senate’s health care bill, calling it “a really cruel bill” that will have “devastating” economic effects on Maine.
“All this week we’ve been hunting around here for the Republican health care bill. This morning we found it, and I’m kind of sorry we did because it’s pretty bad,” Senator King said in his video.
“It basically increases the cost of health care, particularly for seniors; massively cuts Medicaid, which supports people in nursing homes, disabled people, children – I mean, it is a really cruel bill. The President called the House bill ‘mean.’ I think this one is cruel."
