Sen. John McCain says the Senate's overhaul of the Affordable Care Act is stuck in gridlock but he hopes some type of legislation gets a vote before Congress' Fourth of July recess.
The Arizona Republican told constituents listening to a Facebook Live town hall meeting Thursday that the House-passed version of the overhaul is getting little consideration in the upper chamber. He said if the Senate doesn't act by June 30, a repeal becomes more of a problem.
McCain echoed Republican talking points that the current health care law is unsustainable. But he also said dealing with Medicaid expansion that was part of the law is a major problem. He said he favors giving states more latitude that will require federal money but also more state-level funding.
