Statement From U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made these statements.

“My friendship with John McCain is not based on how he votes but respect for how he’s lived his life and the person he is. 

“I respectfully disagree with his position not to proceed forward on Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson.  I know Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson is the best chance to repeal and replace Obamacare. 

“Obamacare is collapsing in Arizona, South Carolina, and across the nation - driving up premiums and reducing choices.  I feel an obligation to fix this disaster and intend to push forward for state-centric health care versus Washington-knows-best health care. 

“I’m completely convinced taking money and power out of Washington and returning it to states to administer health care is the best way to replace a collapsing Obamacare system.  I’m excited about solutions we have found in Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson.  We press on.”
