Indivisible Southern Arizona hosted a rally to "Save our Healthcare" outside Senator John McCain's office this morning.

McCain has said he wanted to get feedback from Governor Doug Ducey before deciding on the bill, but this group says McCain has had enough time.

The group said if the Senate Health Care bill passes, about 400,000 Arizonans would be among the millions of Americans uninsured.

One woman said keeping the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, would actually work in favor of the Republican agenda.

The Affordable Care Act keeps costs low, allowing people to push more money into local economies.

The Senate pushed back the vote for the Health Care bill until after the July recess.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants to draft a new bill and submit it to the Congressional Budget's Office before Friday.
