Sen. Shelley Moore Capito told Axios she doesn't "look favorably" on the Senate's emerging healthcare legislation to repeal Obamacare.
The West Virginia Republican is a centrist who doesn't like the cap on Medicaid, especially since her state expanded Medicaid.
"I think that's a problem," Capito told Axios. "I think that sort of defeats the purpose of keeping people on, and at a level at which the program can be sustained. I don't look favorably on it, that's for sure."
That's significant, given that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly tried to craft healthcare legislation that would appeal to moderate Republicans while trying to avoid defections from conservative senators.
Senate Republicans can suffer just two "nay" votes given their slim majority.
