WASHINGTON D.C. (KNSS) – In a statement released Monday Kansas Senator Jerry Moran announced he is not supporting the latest GOP healthcare bill known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act. 

In the statement Moran said, "There are serious problems with Obamacare, and my goal remains what it has been for a long time: to repeal and replace it. This closed-door process has yielded the BCRA, which fails to repeal the Affordable Care Act or address healthcare’s rising costs. For the same reasons I could not support the previous version of this bill, I cannot support this one."

Moran continued calling the bill "bad policy" and said going forward the Senate should, "start fresh with an open legislative process to develop innovative solutions that provide greater personal choice, protections for pre-existing conditions, increased access and lower overall costs for Kansans."
