Sen. Tom Cotton, Arkansas Republican, said Wednesday it might be a good idea to pump the brakes a bit on the push to overhaul Obamacare and that the Senate isn’t just going to rubber-stamp whatever the House passes.
“I think we’re moving a little bit too quickly on health care reform,” Mr. Cotton said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
“This is a big issue. This is not like the latest spending bill that gets released on a Monday night, [passed] on Wednesday and everybody goes home for Christmas, and we live with it for nine months,” he said.
“We’re going to live with health care reform that we pass forever, or until it’s changed in the far distant future,” he said.
“So I don’t think we need to introduce legislation on Monday and have one chance to amend it on Wednesday,” he said. “I would much sooner get health care reform right than get it fast.
