McCain comes out against Obamacare repeal bill

US Senator John McCain Friday announced his opposition to the latest Republican attempt to replace Barack Obama’ s signature health care law, likely dooming the repeal effort .

“ I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal, ” McCain said of the bill proposed by fellow Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy .

“ I believe we could do better working together , Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried, ” the senator said in a statement.

In July , McCain made a dramatic return to Washington from Arizona after a brain cancer diagnosis to become one of three Republican senators who helped sink their party ’ s earlier efforts to replace Obamacare.

Republicans have pledged to repeal Obama’ s health care reforms , but have struggled to secure enough support to do so amid fears that proposed alternatives would dramatically increase the number of Americans without health insurance.
