John McCain just STABBED Americans in the back by casting the decisive vote to defeat the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare.
The bill, called the “skinny repeal,” was the last resort for the do-nothing GOP to pass something, ANYTHING, to ease the suffering of the American people.
But thanks to John McCain, that didn’t happen.
This man actually dragged his limp, sorry carcass out of a hospital and into the Senate, all so he could screw the American people over one last (hopefully) time.
Let his name live on in disgrace long after he is gone, he has spent his entire political career sticking it to the working class, and serving himself and his elite buddies, and has grown wealthy off the backs of the American people.
Traitor McCain just gave his official “explanation” for why he betrayed the American people and it’s just as lame you’d think.
From the Washington Examiner
Sen. John McCain delivered an unexpected “no” vote in the early hours of Friday morning that helped defeat an amendment to repeal portions of Obamacare, and said later in a statement that he did so because he wasn’t confident that the bill eventually would not become law.
The bill, which removed only parts of Obamacare, was being pitched to Republicans as a vehicle to get something out of the Senate and into a conference with the House where senators hoped it will be improved into a more comprehensive replacement of Obamacare.
McCain, R-Ariz., however, said he was concerned because there was no guarantee that the House would not send the bill directly to President Trump’s desk.
A statement issued by House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., did not assuage his concerns.
“The Speaker’s statement that the House would be ‘willing’ to go to conference does not ease my concern that this shell of a bill could be taken up and passed at any time,” he said.
Others had shared his concerns, including GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, but were won over after a phone call with Ryan.
Unveiled only hours earlier, the bill was formally known as the Health Care Freedom Act but dubbed a “skinny repeal” of Obamacare, because it merely made a few modifications to the law.
Still, a Congressional Budget Office analysis projected that by 2018 premiums would rise by 20 percent and that 16 million more people would be uninsured.
