Arizona Senator John McCain cast the deciding vote last night to kill the “skinny” Obamacare repeal bill. After the 49 – 51 vote, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell chastised senators, and called on them to come up with solutions to fix the failing healthcare.
In McCain’s home state of Arizona, the insurance marketplace has nearly crumbled. That did not stop McCain, who is suffering from brain cancer, from joining senators Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins in killing the only vehicle currently available through which to fix Obamacare.
Senator Chuck Schumer hugged McCain. Later, Schumer praised McCain for his vote.
