US Senate(WASHINGTON) — A quartet of Republican Senators released a statement on Thursday in opposition to the Republican-controlled Senate’s health care bill.

Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson and Mike Lee issued a joint statement following the release of the Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017. “For a variety of reasons,” the four Senators wrote, “we are not ready to vote for this bill, but we are open to negotiation and obtaining more information before it is brought to the floor.”

“There are provisions in this draft that represent an improvement to our current healthcare system” the four explain. “But it does not appear this draft as written will accomplish the most important promise that we made to Americans: to repeal Obamacare and lower their healthcare costs.”
