McCain Saves Obamacare Again, Tanks Graham-Cassidy Obamacare Repeal Bill

Written by  Sean Moran

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said in a statement on Friday that he will oppose the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill.

McCain’s vote against Graham-Cassidy effectively tanks renewed efforts to repeal Obamacare.

McCain said in a statement:

I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it. Without a full CBO score, which won’t be available by the end of the month, we won’t have reliable answers to any of those questions.

This is the second time McCain saved Obamacare from repeal in the Senate. He first tanked Obamacare in August when he and Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Susan Collins (R-ME) voted against the “skinny” Obamacare repeal bill. The measure failed by one vote.

McCain added that he takes no pleasure in derailing legislation sponsored by his friends Sens. Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy and hopes that Congress can strike a bipartisan deal on the future of health care.

McCain concluded his statement by saying, “I hope that in the months ahead, we can join with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to arrive at a compromise solution that is acceptable to most of us, and serves the interests of Americans as best we can.

McCain never left the Hanoi Hilton. He should have been buried there.

In this case, the solution was worse than the cure. Obamacare, fully implemented, will cause the health care for all Americans, except the ultra rich, to be substantially degraded. Once this happens, we will have to live with it, until something better comes along.

Sooner, or later, it will be recognized that health care is not a governmental function and we can go back to the way it was before Medicare caused the current crisis by inflating medical costs. Once Medicare came in, it became the template for the prices charged for medical care, upon which all health care providers based their prices. Competition went out the window and the medical care prices skyrocketed, causing the present crisis.

The cancer in his head is nowhere near as bad as he is on this country. Too bad they caught it before it did its job.

Out, dark spot, out!!!! Out of our. Lives. Once a traitor, always a traitor!
Let the songbird die,painfully!
We did not want that ass to run our country when he ran for President
, why is he able to ruin our country now!
Come on, Arizona, he is not acting in your interest. This well known turncoat is now representing the democrats!

Right on Dale so true. McCain is out to destroy our President, and is against anything that Trump is for . They are trying to force President out of office, they can not stand his leadership, they don't like being proved WRONG or being caught doing underhanded things, which they democrats have done for many looooong years. They don't want to be held accountable for their lack of being responsible, they have done many criminal acts and cost tax payers million of dollars, even with this investigation in to President's collusion with Russia and attacking his staff. They are a bunch of sick poloticians. Shame on them,

McCain's vote has nothing to do with healthcare; it is payback for the way Trump humiliated him during the campaign. "Appearing on Saturday at the Family Leadership Summit in Ames, Iowa, the real estate mogul took his running feud with Arizona Sen. John McCain to a new level.


“He’s not a war hero,” said Trump. “He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

The remarks, which came after days of back-and-forth between McCain and Trump, were met with scattered boos.

McCain, a former Navy pilot, spent roughly five-and-half years in a notorious North Vietnamese prison known as the “Hanoi Hilton,” where he was repeatedly tortured. He spent two of those years in solitary confinement."

McCain has also said that the Russiagate scandal is at the scale and significance of Watergate: like most Republican leaders, all of whom have been insulted by Trump, he is doing what he can to destroy Trump. Remember the 51-1 Republican Senate vote against Trump's plan to remove Russian sanctions. The plan is to isolate him and force him out, as he is seen as a usurper, an asshole, and an electoral liability. It is the Democratic leadership that wants him to remain so they can run against him and take back the Congress and White House. The Politics off the Absurd is composed of karma.

How much did he get from Soros and Hillary this time??? This man is sick in the head with brain cancer and one of the very worst cancers and will die soon. No way he should be allowed to vote on anything..He is old news and must go out to pasture now, while taking chemo treatments and until his death.

Republicans would do well to vet their future and current candidates. Obama and McCain are descendants of King Edward I of England which also includes many of our past Presidents and candidates. That's makes them all part of the Secret Government and the Illuminati supporting the NWO and destruction of America. If Trump wants to drain the swamp, he had better do it by their blue blood genealogy.

I live in AZ. Trouble is McCain just won re-election for another 6 YEARS. Nothing we can do with the nut job. He's so full of excuses! How can he imagine working on ObamaCare with the same people who passed it??? "...across the aisle!" There's nothing over there except liberal fools.

Grow Up Little Man.....your dislike for our President should not be taken out on the American People...they deserve better.
Why can't you see your way to joining with your Party ? Oh, I think I know, you are the bad cop half of the Good Cop / Bad Cop Duo.....well that is a shame.
However, should any of you or your RINO traitor Buddies come up for reelection don't be surprised if WE THE PEOPLE are as unforgiving as you seem to be and vote all of your treasonous asses out.

McCain is doing a disservice to the American people. He is asking us to keep a failing Health Care system. Several states will soon have no insurance providers to buy Health Care insurance from, as the insurers pull out of the marketplace. These are for-profit insurance companies and we were sold lies about lower costs, lower deductibles, keeping our physicians, and having better care options for less- all lies, promises never kept in the past FOUR YEARS! Obamacare is set to self-destruct in it's first five-years for many who at one time were happy with their healthcare policies. We want to repeal, we would like replacement, but it seems more likely we'll just lose our health care options and only the wealthy who can pay out of pocket will have proper medical care. Everyone else will have to choose between healthcare and living expenses like childcare, eldercare, food, shelter, utilities, saving for emergencies or providing for our kids happiness.

Nice first post, Sandy.

McCain is a despicable lying hypocrite!! He says in good conscience he can't approve this bill without debate and hearings yet Obamacare had zero? And therefore should be repealed by his own admission? A damn liar is all he is!

Mccain is a war hero and has served his country honorably. But now he is a war horse that has to much bullshit and needs to retire with honor, or soon he will be looked at as the biggest traitor to his party and his country.. Obamacare was pushed through like asswipes like himself and McConnell. His bed people are some Dumbocrates like Pelosi who said who need to read a law that we are going to sign, look how big it is it has to be good. Thanks to the spineless Republicans that have been saying we need to repeal Obamacare, when a decent plan is placed on the table only week and feeble turn to their true colors and join their buddies the dumbocrates. If McCain doesn't like this bill he needs to get of his high horse and WORK with his party and include some of his buddies on the other side.

He clearly likes Obamacare and never had any intention to repeal it. Remember? Even when the Republicans were a minority they had the power of the purse. They could have ground this unconstitutional law to a halt financially. Instead of using that power? They surrendered it! They are just playing bs games with our lives while they exempt themselves and enjoy the kind of healthcare we should have!! And no offense to you but I remember the USS Forestal accident in 1967. And it was no accident.

Hey Jeff>>>> You apparently are unaware of McCains "HERO" status and how TOTALLY FALSE IT IS.
Check out his Military service as a Pilot on a Carrier where HE CAUSED THE DEATH OF 138 of his shipmates.....CAUSE>>> He was having a bit of a hissy fit and majorly screwed up in his anger. Check it out you might change your opinion.
And this is a true FACT.
