Thank You: Senator McCain

Senator McCain has announced he will oppose the Graham-Cassidy bill, Republicans’ last chance of ramming TrumpCare through the Senate. His concerns remained unchanged from last time around: that Mitch McConnell chose a secretive, partisan path instead of pursuing a meaningful bipartisan approach through regular order.

Senator McCain put Arizona first. Instead of siding with Trump and McConnell, he sided with you. Today, say thank you.

SAMPLE CALL DIALOGUE

Caller: Hello! My name is [] and I’m calling from [part of state].

Staffer: Hello there!

Caller: I’m calling to say thank you to Senator McCain for announcing his opposition to the Graham-Cassidy bill. Arizona stands to lose $1.6 billion in federal funding by 2026, and 1 million Arizonans with pre-existing conditions would be hurt by this bill. Senator McCain stood up for Arizona instead of siding with McConnell and Trump. I know that must have been tough, but I’m glad he did.

Staffer: Senator McCain agrees with you. That’s why he opposed the bill. He wants to see a bipartisan process run through regular order so we actually have a bill most Senators can agree to. I’d encourage you to find his statement on our website.

Caller: Thanks! I will check it out. And thank you again to Senator McCain for sticking to his principles about the process and for opposing Graham-Cassidy. I am very grateful that he stuck up for us and our state.
