Arizona Governor Doug Ducey reacts to the Senate voting no on skinny repeal. Skinny repeal aimed to get rid of both the individual mandate and the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act. It failed to pass after three Republicans voted no, including Sen. John McCain.
Ducey wrote this on Facebook:
It's no secret Obamacare has been a disaster for Arizona and that I want it repealed and replaced. However, I agree with Senator McCain that the bill on the table clearly isn’t the right approach for Arizona. I've outlined what I'm for and how to increase flexibility for states to improve our health care system. We want to get the policy right, so my office and Senator McCain's office will continue to work together closely to achieve the best result possible for Arizonans.
