He amplified his criticism on Saturday, first tweeting: "John McCain never had any intention of voting for this bill, which his Governor [Doug Ducey] loves".
At a Friday night rally on behalf of Alabama senator Luther Strange, who is facing a close primary runoff on Tuesday, Trump said McCain's opposition to the new bill was "totally unexpected" and "terrible".
"I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried", McCain said of the bill, co-written by Lindsey Graham of SC, his best friend in the Senate, and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana. McCain's opposition will likely sink the latest Republican effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. "Great for Arizona. McCain let his best friend L.G. down!"
He continued: "Arizona had a 116% increase in ObamaCare premiums previous year, with deductibles very high". John McCain has said he won't vote for the legislation.
Paul said, "I have always been a yes for repeal but the bill, the Graham-Cassidy bill, unfortunately, basically keeps most of the Obamacare spending, nearly all of it and it just reshuffles it and block grants it to the states".

A defection by another Republican senator would send the measure to defeat in the Senate, where the GOP has 52-48 majority margin. The bill's chief authors, Sens. "And that's what we should be doing", said Collins. "That would be very ironic, for those of you that know the inner workings of the Senate", Trump continued, referring to Paul's long and bitter rivalry with Sen. He's not a fan of the bill, but reports say he's open to negotiating. He said the GOP can pass bills under special budget reconciliation rules that require just 51 votes, "but that's a trick". Two Republicans have so far said they oppose the measure. Committees of jurisdiction should mark up legislation with input from all committee members, and send their bill to the floor for debate and amendment. "The Senate should reject it", the groups said in a statement. The bill aims to terminate the Affordable Care Act's insurance subsidies, Medicaid expansion and coverage guarantees of people with pre-existing conditions.
