McCain: ‘I’m very worried we’re going to lose the House’

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) expressed deep concern on Tuesday that Republicans are at risk of losing their majority in the House of Representatives due to a flimsy list of legislative accomplishments so far.

“I’m very worried we’re going to lose the House of Representatives," McCain said at a Wall Street Journal event for CFOs. "I don’t think that we’ve accomplished much.”

While the House managed to pass an Obamacare repeal-and-replace plan on its second try, the Senate is now writing its own version of the legislation. The House is also struggling to come up with a plan for the budget, tax reform and infrastructure — three other top priorities for the Republican Party and the White House.

McCain on Tuesday also lambasted both the Obama and Trump administrations for not responding effectively enough to Russian cyber attacks. He called for restrictions to join the military to be loosened in order for the Unites States to be able to launch its own cyber attacks with what he called "Troll Team Six."
