McCain Announces No Vote On Health Care, Effectively Killing GOP Bill

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced Friday that he will not vote for the new Republican health-care bill, effectively killing the GOP’s last chance at passing legislation to repeal and replace ObamaCare before their Sept. 30 deadline. Sponsored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-La.), the bill would convert ObamaCare’s subsidies and Medicaid payments to block grants to states plus cut Medicaid sharply. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” McCain said in a statement. “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried.” The GOP can only lose three votes, and Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) have also already come out against the bill.
