Sen. Dean Heller (R-NV) on Friday said that he cannot support House Republicans’ bill to repeal and replace Obamacare in its current form, signaling trouble for the legislation in the Senate.

Heller’s statement comes after Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) said Thursday that she would not vote for the bill in its current form, either. Several other Republican senators, including Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), also have expressed concerns about the legislation.
