BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Maine’s Republican Sen. Susan Collins says President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul is an “ill conceived” law that reflects the administration’s overreach of power.

The senator’s comments came during the second day of the Maine GOP convention in Bangor on Saturday.

Collins is being challenged in November by Democratic candidate Shenna Bellows, the former executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maine.

Collins said that too many Maine families are finding out that they weren’t able to keep their health insurance plans under the new law as promised.

She says it’s time to replace the law with fairer and more effective reforms in the health care system.

Collins will be followed Saturday by speeches from Gov. Paul LePage and U.S. Sen Rand Paul of Kentucky.
