AMAC Calls on McCain to Keep His Promise to Repeal ObamaCare

Written by  Steve Byas

When Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) was locked in a tough reelection bid last year, he aired TV ads promising to continue his role in “leading the fight to stop Obamacare.”

But when McCain had the opportunity to do just that, and end the individual mandate to purchase health insurance, as required by the Affordable Care Act (better known as ObamaCare), he left his hospital bed in Arizona, traveled to Washington, and voted with the Democrats and against almost all the Republicans to keep it.

McCain’s vote was decisive in killing the proposal, known as “Skinny Repeal.”

This betrayal was noted by the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] and its president, Dan Weber. AMAC bills itself as an alternative to other organizations purporting to represent senior citizens (such as the American Association of Retired Persons, or AARP). Weber argued in a statement that McCain should keep the promise he made to the voters of Arizona to rid the nation of ObamaCare.

“There are much better alternatives to the ACA,” Weber insisted in a statement posted late last week. He added,

Senator McCain put the kibosh on the proposal for reasons that remain unclear. Here’s a hero, both in wartime and peacetime, who has the intestinal fortitude to do the right thing when it counts; and it counts right now.

John McCain is actually John McCains only problem. Now that he found he has cancer he is paying back everyone who has in his mind "wronged him".
In reality John McCain NEVER left the Hanoi Hilton because the viet cong did their mind altering job very professionally. He became the perfect "Manchurian candidate" to put forth the communist agenda thru Songbird John. He should have never been allowed to run for a political position. Look at his flip-flop record throughout his career.

AMAC needs to wise up about McCain, John is a democrat & always has been, he just calls himself a republican to get elected. His bud's in Vietnam had a different name for John...."Songbird McCain".

McCain has been sitting on the fence playing both sides for years. Calls himself a maverick, not so, he's neither fish nor foul and he gives his votes to the highest bidder or lobbyist bearing gifts. He showed his true colors when he threw his constituents overboard to settle his vendetta against president Trump. He proved to America that he was a hero, but he is now a man without honor. Shame on you McCain. I think he should be recalled before his term is up, he doesn't deserve to retire.
But neither do those two twits McCaskil or Collins. Their word is not their bond. I hope the Republicans pick excellent replacements to run against them and fund them well.

John McShame needs to step down.

AMAC, how about telling the traitor to retire? Don't bother wasting time trying to recall McCain. Even now, people are jockeying for position. Gliomas are near the top of pestilential cancers; it is what killed Ted Kennedy. Their frontal lobe location makes them essentially inoperable.

I Think the people should do a recall vote on McCain to get him out of office, this clearly shows McCain true colors, and he did not just get them, they have been their all along. this shows he was not a war hero but a collaborator . its time to put him on notice we have had enough of his sell out crap, and i think he should be put on trial for collaboration during the Vietnam war, i think his actions in Washington have proved his true colors.

McCain's brain cancer is, like Ted Kennedy's, controlling his thoughts. He wants to get reelected. That man does not know if he'll be alive or dead when November 2018. He will most likely be brought in on a gurney next vote.

Or McCain serves....McCain and no one else. He never was a 'maverick'; because of him we have McCain-Feingold and we almost had McCain-0Kennedy. This is proof that reaching across the aisle is pointless. The only thing remaining is how long McCain will keep his senate seat. If he still possessed any morality, he would resign his senate seat.

He had no problem selling out his honor (and his fellow POWs) to the NVA.

A SELF SERVING POLITICIAN WILL PROMISE EVERYTHING TO GET ELECTED = NOT KEPT

I thought he already left his sick bed to vote on this and did the opposite of what he said previously.
