“I fear we may fall under the trap of repealing and not replacing and that would be bad for America”
PHOENIX – U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Wednesday he would not support calls to repeal Obamacare now and replace it at a later date. “I fear we may fall under the trap of repealing and not replacing and that would be bad for America,” he said.
Arizona local news reported:
McCain — who has not said if he supported the Senate bill or not — said he had spoken with Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey about the matter.
McCain said Ducey wanted to see at least three amendments to the bill before he would support it.
“I’m getting those amendments written up, so I’ll be ready to present them if and when the bill comes to the floor,” he said. “I believe Gov. Ducey has to play an important role because, as governor, he has the primary responsibility.”
