Rep. Chris Collins, R-N.Y., leaves the House Republican Conference meeting at the Capitol Hill Club on Nov. 3, 2015.
In upstate New York this morning, Buffalo News readers learned quite a bit about the perspective of a local Republican congressman who, for some reason, thought it'd be a good idea to vote for his party's regressive health care plan. The headline read, "Chris Collins admits he didn't read health care bill."

Rep. Chris Collins told CNN that he didn't read the entire Republican health care bill that the House passed Thursday.And then he told The Buffalo News that he was unaware of a key provision in the bill that decimates a health plan that serves 635,000 New Yorkers.
