Healthcare Stocks Record Gains After McCain's Opposition

Healthcare Stocks Record Gains After McCain's Opposition”

Matt Cartwright said Tuesday night that John McCain will make "good choices" on Obamacare repeal because he is "staring death in the face", a video obtained by the Daily Caller reveals.

"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", Graham, a South Carolina Republican, said in a Friday statement.

Video of the incident first reported by The Washington Examiner shows the lawmaker saying, "McCain I'm anxious about".

Response was swift to the two-term Democrat's statements, as McCain's daughter Meghan blasted Cartwright's words as "disgusting and macabre".

Cartwright later apologized for his comments, saying "I want to express my deep admiration for Senator McCain and gratitude for his service to our nation". I know they are acting consistently with their beliefs and sense of what is best for the country.

McCain returned to the Senate full time two weeks ago after undergoing brain surgery this summer.

Earlier Friday, McCain said Republicans "should not be content to pass healthcare legislation on a party-line basis". Something has to be done.

While McCain is under pressure to yield to his Republican colleagues - and the bill's cosponsor, Sen.

Cartwright noted that the governor of McCain's state of Arizona came out in favor of the bill, which could pressure McCain to support it.

Graham, the bill's sponsor, and McCain share one of the closest friendships in Congress. "It's not so much 60 votes that I care about - it's a bipartisan approach to the issue is what I mostly care about".
