McCain, Flake host town halls on Affordable Care Act

PHOENIX — Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain met with small and large business owners during two separate town hall meetings held in Tucson and Mesa on Monday.

“These town hall meetings are important to hear from people as to what Obamacare is doing to them,” said McCain.

Business owners had the opportunity to ask questions on a variety of topics, but the Affordable Care Act dominated both events.

“We share your frustration. Keep in mind, some of us from the beginning have said this model will not work and so we’ve been looking to change it, delay it or repeal it and replace it with something that works,” said Flake.

The common concern expressed by citizens in both Tucson and Mesa is the costs associated with the law and the threat of loss of coverage because of the requirements under the new law.

Mccain said he’s confident changes to the law will be made before the 2014 election.

“Whether they;re enough, I cant say, but as many as 10 Democrats are deathly afraid.”
