KANSAS CITY, Mo. - U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) said he doesn't intend to support the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017.
In a statement sent out Monday evening, Moran said he won't support the bill because it doesn't repeal the Affordable Care Act or address rising costs.
“We should not put our stamp of approval on bad policy. Furthermore, if we leave the federal government in control of everyday healthcare decisions, it is more likely that our healthcare system will devolve into a single-payer system, which would require a massive federal spending increase. We must now start fresh with an open legislative process to develop innovative solutions that provide greater personal choice, protections for pre-existing conditions, increased access and lower overall costs for Kansans.”
Moran is at least the fourth Republican to come out and say he won't support the BCRA.
