Susan Collins To Vote For Blunt Amendment

Soon before the vote, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) announced on the floor that she will vote for the Blunt amendment aimed at rolling back the Obama administration’s birth control mandate.

“I do this with a lot of conflict, because I think the amendment does have its flaws, but when the administration cannot even assure me that self-insured faith-based organizations’ religious freedoms are protected I feel I have no choice,” Collins said. “I hope that the amendment will be refined.”
