#LisaMurkowski and #SusanCollins colluded to save #PlannedParenthood

Two Republican senators who voted against the “skinny” healthcare repeal last week said they were concerned the bill cut funding for Planned Parenthood, and that they were working in the best interest of their states.

“The issue of family planning services, cancer screenings, [and] women care probably does resonate with us more than it does with our male colleagues, and to me it was so unfair to single out one Medicaid provider and say to women in particular, ‘You can’t choose which health care provider you want to go to,'” said Maine Sen. Susan Collins, who appeared on CNN with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska.

Murkowski and Collins spoke of the phone calls and meetings they had and the pressure they felt about their vote.
