McCain: Dems Are Living in a 'Fantasy Land' Where ObamaCare Is Going Well
Meghan McCain said Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is "fear-mongering and rabble-rousing" by slamming the GOP health care bill.
"I just don't understand the correlation in this fantasy land of Democrats where this is going well, where ObamaCare hasn't been a complete disaster."
Senate Minority Leader Schumer spoke on the Senate floor today calling the Senate version of the healthcare bill "meaner" than the House version.
Schumer slammed the bill, calling it a "wolf in sheep's clothing," and saying it will provide a "giant tax break for the wealthiest."
"The way this bill cuts health care is heartless," Schumer said.
McCain pointed out that her home state of Arizona has seen skyrocketing ObamaCare premiums, which have risen on average 116 percent this year.
She also noted that the state is down to just one health insurer in each county except one.
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell unveiled the Senate version of ObamaCare's replacement Thursday after a closed-door drafting process that drew criticism from both sides.
The vote is expected next week, but Sen. Rand Paul and three more Republican senators say they oppose the current bill.
