Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas has been asked by a constituent on Twitter if he would support the GOP health care package if it was passed into law.
The Capitol Hill resident tweeted that the House and Senate should be voting on the bill, but Cotton said he was not going to vote for it because it does not include a guaranteed path to health insurance.
The Hill reported that Cotton also wants to know if the bill included a guarantee of affordable coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
Cotton has not said what specific condition he would be interested in being able to access coverage under the Senate bill, and his office did not respond to The Hill’s request for comment.
The senator from Arkansas, who has been a leading voice in the Senate on health care reform, said last week that he would vote for the House version of the bill if it passed, but added he does not think the House bill provides a guarantee for affordable coverage.
Cotton’s comments came after Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said that he wanted to know what Cotton would do if Republicans didn’t pass the Senate’s version of health care.
Graham said on Tuesday that Cotton “needs to be asked about this,” adding that he has been waiting for a statement from Cotton since Tuesday.
Graham said that Cotton’s comments “are a big deal, and they’re a big problem for me.”
“If I am elected to the Senate, I will oppose any legislation that does not pass the House,” Graham said in a statement on Tuesday.
“And if the House does not act, I am committed to supporting any legislation we can get passed to keep our country safe.”
