Healthcare stocks got a boost Friday afternoon when Senator John McCain of Arizona spoke out against the proposed Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill, which is currently making its way through the Senate.

McCain, who dealt the final blow to Republicans’ previous attempt at repealing the Affordable Care Act, said lawmakers “should not be content to pass health care legislation on a party-line basis.”

His statement sent the S&P 500 healthcare index, which consists of 10 stocks, up 0.45%.
