McCain Says Senate Should Not Repeal Obamacare Without Replacement Plan

Sen. John McCain, R-AZ, said the Senate should not repeal Obamacare without finalizing a replacement plan.

“I fear we may fall under the trap of repealing and not replacing and that would be bad for America,” he said in Phoenix, according to reports from KTAR.

Senate Republicans had to delay a vote on their plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act last week after several GOP senators came out against the draft legislation.

McCain has not weighed in publicly on the Obamacare replacement bill and did not share how he would vote when making his remarks. He did say he would like to offer three amendments to the bill the are supported by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, R.

“I’m getting those amendments written up, so I’ll be ready to present them if and when the bill comes to the floor,” McCain added. “I believe Gov. Ducey has to play an important role because, as governor, he has the primary responsibility.”
