WASHINGTON — President Trump and congressional Republicans suffered a dramatic failure early Friday in their bid to advance a scaled-back plan to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, raising the prospect of emergency bipartisan talks to shore up the existing health-care system.
In a dramatic showdown on the Senate floor, Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) stunned his colleagues by joining two other Republicans to reject the latest attempt to rewrite the ACA. The Arizona Republican, diagnosed with brain cancer last week, returned to Washington on Tuesday and delivered a stirring address calling for a bipartisan approach to overhauling the 2010 health-care law, while criticizing the process that produced the current legislation.
