Sen. Angus King: No One Knows Which Health Bill Is Set for Vote

Sen. Angus King said no one knows which version of the healthcare bill is set for a Senate vote.

"Let me give you a quick synopsis on what I know about the bill we'll be voting on this afternoon," the Maine independent said Tuesday on CNN's "New Day" program.

"There is no one who knows. I talked to two senior Republicans last Thursday afternoon. I said, 'What are we going to be voting on, on Tuesday?' They said, 'We have no idea.'"

"I think it's going to be the House bill, but then there may be a substitute amendment… I have never seen a process like this. No hearings, no discussion," King said.

"By the way, the best of the bills kicks 22 million people off of health insurance," he continued, "that's the best one of the three. One goes up to 30 million.

"Then they're going to have to, maybe, vote against it, and then they're caught in the, 'Well, I voted for it and then I voted against it.' That's a bad place to be, it seems to me, as this thing unfolds," King added.

On Friday, King called for bipartisan work on improving the Affordable Care Act. "I don't know one person in the Senate who will tell you that the ACA is perfect, but I do know there are a lot of us who want to get the fixes right."
