Murkowski Sees Health Repeal Effort as Wasted Time

Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) “on Thursday cast doubt on the manner in which Republicans have attempted to repeal the healthcare law,” The Hill reports.

Murkowski said that she would vote to repeal the law if a vote was held in the Senate, but she said [that]enough votes do not exist in the upper chamber to strike the law. As a result, Republicans should focus on other issues such as unemployment, spending and the federal debt and deficit, she said.

"The real question is, how much time do we as a Congress spend on this messaging?" Murkowski asked during an interview with KTVA-TV.

She argued that Congress “should seriously focus on reducing healthcare costs, but repeal efforts have not satisfied that need.”
