Dear Senator McCain:
The Arizona Public Health Association and our members urge you to trust your instincts regarding the process that is being used in the Senate regarding the Graham-Cassidy Bill.
We agree with your previous statements and commitments suggesting that Regular Order is the best policy for debating and passing key legislation, especially legislation that impacts Arizonans in a profound and personal way like access to health care.
As you know, legislation that goes through the time-tested processes of debate and input from all sides is more likely to build buy-in and consensus. Legislation and public policy built together is much more likely to be successful in the long-run.
Now more than ever, we need solutions to our Nation’s problems that are built together, with input from all.
We thank you for your leadership and your statesmanship.
