It's even stranger because what they're even voting on is unclear - here's a quick explainer that might help.
He said he was in touch over the weekend with Seema Verma, the Trump administration's head of Medicare and Medicaid, and that her proposal to make up some funding with non-Medicaid money has potential. But Graham said "woe is me" is not in McCain's DNA.
