Ron Johnson of Wisconsin says he will not vote yes on the US Senate Republican healthcare bill without time to review

Via UBC News  –  United States Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin says he will not vote yes on the US Senate Republican healthcare bill without time to review it.

Senator Johnson told CNN, “What I’ve told leadership very clearly is I’m going to need time, and my constituents are going to need time to evaluate exactly how this is going to affect them, so I personally think that holding a vote on this next week would definitely be rushed. I can’t imagine, quite honestly, that I’d have the information to evaluate and justify a yes vote within just a week. I’ve told McConnell, unless I have the input from my constituents, unless I have got the information I need to justify a yes vote, I won’t be voting yes.” Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell released a discussion draft of the bill on Thursday.
