Senate Republicans ask woman, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, to join all-male health care working group

After naming an all-male working group to tackle the Senate version of the GOP's bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, Senate Republicans have invited a woman to participate.

According to the Hill, Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.VA.) was invited by her party's Senate leaders on Tuesday to participate in a working group meeting on health care reform -- a move likely stemming from the outpouring of criticism Sen. Mitch McConnell and others faced after leaving women off the 13-member health care team's roster.

Capito told reporters she had been invited to Tuesday's session, but wasn't certain whether she would continue participating after the day's meeting.

When asked to comment on her status within the Senate working group going forward, Capito simply responded, "I don't know."

"We're going to be talking about Medicaid; that's the issue I'm concerned about," Capito reportedly added.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), another woman who had previously been expected to join the Senate's health care group, told ABC's George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that the Senate is "starting from scratch" on the House's American Health Care Act -- revised legislation that House GOP leaders narrowly passed by a 217-213 margin last Thursday.

"The House bill is not going to come before us," Collins said. "The Senate is starting from scratch. We're going to draft our own bill. And I'm convinced that we're going to take the time to do it right."

Collins has raised concern about the push to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood, and has said she plans to continue working on health care legislation separate from Senate Republican leadership's designated group.
