In recent days, Trump has tweeted that McCain was sold "a bill of goods" against the bill by Democrats and that any GOP senator voting against the bill would be known as "the Republican who saved ObamaCare".
The Graham-Cassidy health care repeal plan would threaten the health of my family, and of children and families across our community and state. It would also keep most of the law's tax increases but shift them into block grants for individual states that could choose how they wished to use the money. It takes funds that would have gone to the Medicaid expansion under Obamacare and instead introduces block grants for states to decide how they want their own health insurance systems to work.
Her "no" vote would likely deal a fatal blow to the senate bill as two Republicans, Rand Paul and John McCain, have already come out against it. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of ME, and the revised legislation may be released this weekend, Politico reports.
But doubts remain over whether he would bring up the bill if it did not have enough support to pass, especially after Republicans' last attempt at repealing Obamacare suffered a theatrical failure on the floor in July.
Last week, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) seemingly killed the GOP's latest attempt to repeal Obamacare when he released a statement saying he could not support the Graham-Cassidy bill. The reason that there is a majority of Republicans in both Houses is because they were voted for on a similar platform, by saying the Democrats should be more involved is actually not how the US process works.
Graham told ABC News that he still thinks there is a possibility of winning the repeal vote and is "moving forward" with efforts to try to change the minds of the last Republican holdouts against the repeal legislation.
But Collins has expressed the view that millions of people who now have insurance to pay their health care bills under Obamacare would lose it under the Republican plan.
Washington, Sep 23 (IANS) US Senator John McCain has said he can not support his fellow Republicans' latest effort to repeal Obamacare, dealing it a potentially fatal blow.

That has now changed and when the programme gets up to speed the Fed will be reducing its balance sheet by $600bn a year. An inflation rate of 2 percent is the Fed's general goal, and a benchmark for gauging economic health to raise rates.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz said he isn't on board with legislation to repeal ObamaCare, raising the possibility that the GOP's latest effort to derail the healthcare law will fail once again.
"I'm leaning against the bill", Collins said at a constituency event. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has said he opposes the bill, and Sen.
To make a September 30 deadline, Republican senators meant to bring the bill offered by Graham and Sen.
Trump says the bill would be "great for Arizona" and he says McCain "let his best friend L.G. down!"
The Republican Party, despite campaigning ferociously for Obamacare repeal for almost seven years, could never agree on how to turn those promises into reality without sending the healthcare industry into a tailspin.
In the meantime, the best thing that could happen to the Graham-Cassidy bill is a quiet death.
"Without a full CBO score, which won't be available by the end of the month, we won't have reliable answers to any of those questions", said McCain.
As a piece of health care policy, Graham-Cassidy was deeply flawed.
