John McCain is declaring repeal and replace dead. Under the circumstances will the Senate just repeal? Will The House of Representatives follow?
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Sunday the Republican bill to repeal and replace Obamacare is “probably going to be dead.”
"My view is that it's probably going to be dead," he said on CBS’s Face the Nation.
Support for the bill has been eroding over the July 4th recess, and McCain said he believes Republicans should work with Democrats to craft health care legislation.
That is a possibility floated last week by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said “No action is not an alternative.”
Sen. Ted Cruz on Sunday reiterated a push to simply repeal Obamacare, let it go into effect in a year or two and use that time to debate replacement. USA TODAY
Why not just back off the rushed effort to repeal and replace and enter into hearings and negotiations to fix what is wrong with the ACA?
