John McCain (R-AZ) to oppose a last-ditch GOP proposal to overhaul the Obama health law, Republicans have nearly run out of time to make substantive changes to Obamacare by a September 30 deadline for action under a special expedited procedure that did not allow for a Senate filibuster, again dealing the President and GOP leaders a bitter defeat on an issue they've campaigned on for the last seven years.
Early on Saturday morning, Trump further aired his frustration in a series of tweets to McCain.
Although many have said McCain's opposition effectively ends the GOP health care push, Lewandowski said Trump is a master deal-maker and he will continue to work with lawmakers like Sens. Bill Cassidy, R-La., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. Sen. However, after McCain's "no", if Paul remains a "no" and Collins also declares definitively she won't vote for the bill, Republicans openly acknowledge that's the ballgame. "Let Arizona down!" Trump tweeted.
He continued: "Arizona had a 116% increase in ObamaCare premiums past year, with deductibles very high".
McCain said in a statement that he can not "in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal", saying he favors a collaboration between Republicans and Democrats instead.
The Graham-Cassidy bill would transform the structure of Medicaid, giving states control over how they spend federal funds. Great for Arizona. McCain let his best friend L.G. down!
President Donald Trump is holding out hope that a last-ditch effort to overhaul the Obama-era health law isn't over.
The Senate faces a September 30 deadline for deciding on the bill under an expiring rule that lets the healthcare proposal pass with just a simple majority, instead of the 60-vote threshold needed for most legislation.

We kind of gave it an ultimatum... we got the outfield roped and we were in agreement that if it continued to be unsafe or if anything dramatic or drastic happened we'd call it quits.
Addressing Cassidy-Graham at the Texas Tribune Festival in Austin, Cruz said, "right now, they don't have my vote. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried", McCain said in a statement. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) have expressed skepticism about it. Maybe the biggest lesson from the after-action report on GOP health care bills over the last nine months is a simple one - Republicans were not ready with their own plan to replace the Obama health law, even though they had been talking about this for seven straight years.
Despite public pressure from President Trump, Paul has vigorously opposed the Graham-Cassidy bill because he feels it does not do enough to repeal Obamacare.
Ducey had come out in favor of the bill Monday.
Graham made a plea to Paul to reconsider his opposition: "Rand Paul objects to the taxes, but when you look at the bill, Rand, we save a lot of money over time from Medicaid", Graham said on ABC.
The Brookings Institution estimated Friday that the Graham-Cassidy plan would reduce the number of people with health coverage by about 21 million a year from 2020 through 2026.
Collins' comments were consistent with what she told reporters Friday that she was "leaning against" the bill, according to The Portland Press Herald.
The Senate should heed his advice before acting on a measure opposed by the National Association of Medicaid Directors. States that rejected the Medicaid expansion would gain $73 billion.
Major health industry organizations including America's Health Insurance Plans representing insurers and the American Hospital Association released a statement Saturday urging the legislation's rejection. As of Friday, Murkowksi's staff said the senator was undecided and planned to take the weekend to review the legislation. The bill would also require insurance companies to cover people with pre-existing conditions, one of the requirements set forth by Trump. A vote taken any later than that would have to garner at least 60 votes for passage.
