Pat Toomey: Senate Health Care Bill is First Step to Repealing Obamacare

The Pennsylvania senator defended Senate Republican’s health care bill from attacks from the right.

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) defended the Senate GOP health care reform bill from attacks on the right in an appearance on Face the Nation on Sunday.

“I see this bill as a first step, a first important step in the direction of repealing those portions of Obamacare that we can, stabilizing the individual market which is collapsing, and making important reforms to Medicaid,” Toomey said.

“It’s not the last step,” he concluded.

The Pennsylvania senator, first elected to the Senate in the Tea Party wave of 2010, said that he was “sympathetic” to the concerns of his conservative colleagues.
