After the GOP revealed its new health care bill today, Senator Ben Sasse's office released a statement on the new bill. 

“Senator Sasse is now reviewing the new text and will dig into the new CBO score next week," a spokesperson said for the Senator said. "He wants to make sure Republicans keep our promise to repeal ObamaCare and replace it with a system that protects the poorest and weakest among us and also expands portability and drives down costs for American families.”

Sasse has been a frequent critic of Obamacare and has suggested if it can't be repealed and replaced,it should just be repealed first.
