John McCain Says He Will Oppose Latest Effort to Repeal Obamacare

"I can not in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal", the Arizona senator said in a statement today about the legislation authored by GOP Sens.

McCain had said repeatedly that he wanted "regular order" on health care legislation, and the Senate Finance Committee scheduled a hearing Monday on the Graham-Cassidy proposal.

The big question is what will happen to the Obamacare markets if the Republican efforts to repeal the law do in fact fail. "For people in our state who care about people having health care insurance, Graham-Cassidy is truly a Godsend". "I have assured Senator McCain that as soon as repeal is off the table, we Democrats are intent on resuming the bipartisan process". "We press on", he said.

Graham-Cassidy is the latest attempt by Republicans to repeal or repeal and replace former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare legislation.
