Consider another statement issued by McCain, this time after the Senate voted in December of 2015 to repeal and not replace much of Obamacare.

“The legislation we passed today would unburden Americans from the harmful effects of this failed law and build a bridge to health care solutions that work for families in Arizona and across the country,” said McCain. “It is clear that any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, and I will continue fighting on behalf of the people of Arizona to achieve it.”

If he truly believes that “any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare,” McCain knows there is no bipartisan solution to reform that meets his own standards.
