McCain: Arizona Would Be 'Screwed' By GOP Healthcare Plan

John McCain says he hates the healthy diet his wife and daughter are forcing on him as he fights an aggressive form of brain cancer but expects to return to the Senate next month.

McCain also said he's ready to revive a comprehensive immigration reform effort aimed at providing a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

"Arizona was about to get screwed, if I may, under this plan", he flatly stated. I think there are all kinds of deals to be made out there.

In an interview with the Arizona Republic, McCain said he is not opposed to promoting such skills-based immigration, but voiced concern about how the measure could affect farm labor and other low-skilled work.

"Basically it's what we passed last time, brought up to date with the new challenges, like opioids", McCain said.

His goal appears to be a long shot, coming a day after President Donald Trump backed a Senate bill from GOP Sens.

McCain said though he supports merit-based immigration, he's anxious about how farm labor and other low-skilled workers would fare under the Cotton-Perdue bill.

"I had no input frankly as to how it was going to be fixed, McCain said, "except to vote yes or no once it came out of the conference". "I wouldn't do it".
