WASHINGTON, D.C. (AP) - Sen. Pat Roberts, (R-Kansas), is apologizing for his comment about the possibility the GOP health care bill would ease federal requirements on coverage of basic services like mammograms.


In an interview with a reporter for Talking Points Memo on Thursday, Roberts was asked about potential changes in the health care bill. He said: "I wouldn't want to lose my mammograms."


He later tweeted an apology: "I deeply regret my comments on a very important topic. Mammograms are essential to women's health & I never intended to indicate otherwise."

Jones said he was "deeply sorry" and "messed up on a lot of things." He was the director of the since-terminated UDrive Kansas driving school.
