He did it again. John McCain obviously has some serious issue for supporting GOP bills. When it comes to the Obamacare Repeal, John McCain already shocked us. Most of the conservative Americans are sincerely disappointed and demand answers. John McCain is ‘riding solo’. He thinks that with his lobby he’s powerful enough to go against what Americans voted for.
Trump promised this reform to all of his voters, but the Senate disagrees. They think they know what’s best for you.
On Friday, Sen. John McCain betrayed every Republican in America once more.
“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” McCain said in the statement, referring to the bill Republicans were planning to put on the floor.
His opposition is a major setback, if not full-on death sentence, for the legislation. Senate Republicans can only lose two GOP votes and still pass the bill. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Susan Collins (R-ME) have also signaled they’re very likely to vote against the bill. The deadline for the Senate to move forward on the Obamacare repeal effort that passed out of the House is Sept. 30.
McCain was the key vote that torpedoed Senate Republicans’ last Obamacare repeal effort in July, with a late-night surprise vote against a previous proposal that would have gone to a conference committee between the House and the Senate. That dramatic vote came after McCain was rushed back to Washington from Arizona, where he has been receiving cancer treatments. McCain had voted in favor of advancing an Obamacare repeal bill in an initial procedural vote, but then gave a riveting speech on the Senate floor ripping lawmakers for abandoning the traditional legislative process.
Likewise, the statement McCain issued Friday focused on the process complaints about the latest bill, sponsored by Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and McCain’s good friend, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Their bill was only introduced earlier this month, and Republicans intended to vote on it next week with only a preliminary Congressional Budget Office score that would not have analyzed the legislation’s effects on health care coverage or its overall costs to the federal government.
Poor republicans… McCain stabs them for the 3rd time. It couldn’t get worse than this. Why they don’t just let it go. Every idea is blocked, every possible solution rejected… It seems like some people want to keep Obamacare as it is, and they’re determined to do anything for this purpose. Will Trump succeed to even make a reform of the existing Obamacare system? Maybe after 2018? Who knows… This doesn’t look good at all.
