Former Word of Faith Fellowship church member Rick Cooper poses for a photo at his home in Charlotte, N.C., Monday, Sept. 18, 2017. He and 10 other members of the evangelical North Carolina-based church say their leader, Jane Whaley, coerced congregants into filing false unemployment claims after the faltering economy threatened weekly tithes from church-affiliated companies. “I was making about $700 a week, but I only collected $235 a week in unemployment,” Cooper said. “So I’m working the same hours _ many times, much longer hours _ for less. It was devastating for my family.” (AP Photo/Chuck Burton)

FILE - In this July 27, 2017, file photo, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington. Legislative budget analysts say a possibly doomed Republican health care bill would mean a first-year loss of $1.7 billion of funding for Arizona for the Medicaid eligibility expansion and the health exchange. McCain says on Friday, Sept. 22, 2017, he won't vote for the Republican bill repealing the Obama health care law. His statement likely deals a fatal blow to the last-gasp GOP measure in a Senate showdown expected next week. The Arizona Republican says he can't back the partisan GOP measure because "we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats." (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
