Tom Cotton: We risk losing the House if this health-care bill passes

“I would say to my friends in the House of Representatives with whom I serve, ‘Do not walk the plank and vote for a bill that cannot pass the Senate and then have to face the consequences of that vote,” Cotton told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos.

The Arkansas senator went further, saying on “This Week” Sunday that Republicans are in danger of losing their House majority if they approve the GOP health measure, called the American Health Care Act, proposed last week by House Republican leaders and endorsed by the White House.

“I’m afraid that if they vote for this bill they’re going to put the House majority at risk next year,” Cotton said.
