Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, one of three Republican senators who voted against the "skinny" Obamacare repeal bill, said GOP lawmakers and Democrats need to work together to find a solution to the nation’s healthcare problems.

"We need to reconsider our approach," she said in a statement on her Twitter account. "The (Affordable Care Act) is flawed and in portions of the country is near collapse. Rather than engaging in partisan exercises, Republicans and Democrats should work together to address these very serious problems."

Collins had previously said she could not support an Obamacare repeal because of the impact it would have had on Americans needing coverage, Time magazine reported.

Republican Sens. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona also joined with Democrats in defeating the skinny bill.
