McCain Unable

Next week was setting up to be the final showdown as the Senate GOP looked to replace Obamacare with the Graham-Cassidy bill. But the plug may have just been pulled on that plan as John McCain goes the way of Jimmy Kimmel and says he’s unable to back the bill: “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.”

+ It probably didn’t help that all 50 Medicaid directors opposed the GOP’s latest health care bill, and a Brookings report indicated at least 21 million would lose insurance.
