Sen. Collins: GOP Should Be Wary of Big Entitlement Changes

Republicans should tread very carefully when it comes to overhauling entitlement programs during budget negotiations, Sen. Susan Collins warned on Thursday. In particular, the Maine Republican warned GOP leaders against making drastic changes to Medicare.
Collins’ comments came as the Senate is closing in on approving its fiscal 2016 spending blueprint on Thursday, after the House approved its version on Wednesday. Collins did say she would support the Senate GOP budget despite concerns about spending on domestic programs.
