Senator John McCain (R-AZ) passed away last Saturday, leaving behind a storied legacy including three decades as a federal policymaker. On this week's episode of the NAHU Healthcare Happy Hour, NAHU’s vice president of government affairs Marcy M. Buckner and Vice Presidents of Congressional Affairs John Greene and Chris Hartmann reflect on the life of Senator John McCain and the impact that he had on the nation's healthcare politics and policy. They break down some of his most consequential positions and actions, both as a candidate for office in his runs for the presidency, as well as in his 35-year career in Congress. They also reflect on how he has shaped the debate on employer-sponsored health insurance and the ACA, and how Arizona’s new senators may shape healthcare policy in the coming years.
