We are just finding out about this now.
National Review reported:
President Barack Obama called Senator John McCain (R., Ariz.) last year to thank him for casting the decisive vote against legislation that would have effectively repealed Obamacare, according to an excerpt of McCain’s forthcoming memoir obtained by NBC.

In McCain’s memoir, The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations, which he coauthored with longtime aide Mark Salter, he describes receiving a call from Obama in July after crushing Republican hopes of dismantling the former president’s signature domestic achievement.

McCain, 81 and suffering from stage-four brain cancer, found himself last summer at the center of the GOP’s efforts to make good on countless campaign promises to repeal and replace what many conservatives described as a fiscally disastrous health-care law.
