BREAKING: McCain Kills "Graham-Cassidy"

  • 4 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols
Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham.

New York Times, so much for that:

“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” Mr. McCain said. “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 affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.”

It’s very difficult to see how the latest attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act known as the Graham-Cassidy bill can pass without the support of Sen. John McCain–and that’s before other swing Senators like Sen. Lisa Murkowski follow his lead, which is likely now. McCain’s move also puts highly vulnerable Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada in a very bad position going into next year’s elections after Heller backed this latest effort.

And with that, once again, it’s all over but the shouting. We’ve certainly learned our lesson about calling “Trumpcare” really most sincerely dead through more mulligan attempts than we would have predicted. But for a host of procedural and political reasons, the repeal of the Affordable Care Act is now, well, deader than ever before.

Keep your zombie-hunting gear handy though.

  1. Two out of three of Murkowski, Collins, and Paul have to remain in opposition. Murkowski can be bought. Collins is probably a firm no. Paul is a nutcase. This is still down to the wire.

  2. Yes, but West Virginia and Ohio are really going to take a hit on Medicaid funding if this thing were to pass so don't be surprised in Capito or Portman suddenly becomes wobbly.

     

    1. I think you may very well be right, especially about Sen. Portman. Gov. Kasich has come out guns blazing against this health care bill. That gives Portman cover to vote against it.
