President Donald Trump called the failure of Congress to repeal Obamacare "disgusting" on Monday — and expressed deep pessimism that a latch-ditch Republican repeal effort will succeed.
Trump also said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is the sole reason for the inability of the Republican-controlled Senate to pass health-care reform legislation.
"You can call it what you want, but that's the only reason we don't have it, because of John McCain," Trump said on the "Rick and Bubba" radio show, which is based in Alabama and airs across the South, according to The Washington Post.
McCain in late July dramatically cast the third and fatal Republican vote against an earlier Obamacare repeal bill.
Last Friday, McCain said he will not vote for the Graham-Cassidy bill pending in the Senate, which must be voted on by Saturday if it is to pass under the rules of reconciliation that would allow the bill to be approved without 60 senators supporting it.
