McCain and Kasich Rebuke Partisan Health Care Repeal with No Committee Hearings

By September 18, 2017No Comments

On CBS’s Face the Nation this weekend, Senator John McCain reiterated his belief that any health care repeal needs bipartisan input and public hearings, as opposed to the secret, closed, partisan process currently driving the Graham-Cassidy health care repeal.

In response to McCain’s statement, Ohio Governor John Kasich agreed.

Here’s McCain’s full quote from Face the Nation:

MCCAIN: “Are we going to ram through our proposal with, with Democrats and the president? That’s not the way to do it. We got to go back. If I could just say again, the way to do this is have a bill, put it through the committee. We have Patty Murray and Lamar Alexander are doing fine — bring it to the floor. Have debate. Have amendments.”
