On behalf of the American Lung Association in Arizona, I thank Sen. John McCain for standing up and protecting health care for Arizona residents living with lung disease. The senate’s health-care bill would have harmed the millions of Americans who need care as part of their daily battle against lung diseases, including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and lung cancer. Sen. McCain was right to vote against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

We are hopeful that now the Senate can work together in a bipartisan way to improve our nation’s health care system and ensure that all Americans have quality and affordable health care.

Executive Vice President, Southwest Region American Lung Association
