Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
Sen. John McCain once again earned the ire of conservatives when he torpedoed the Obamacare repeal vote, and now a video surfaced showing that he’s a straight up liar to the people of this country.
McCain was joined by Senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski in defeating the so-called “skinny repeal” legislation that would have ended the most disastrous portions of Obamacare. Just before the vote, he was seen talking with his Democrat colleagues, then after the vote he was seen laughing with them on the Senate floor.
Republicans in the Senate were stunned when he walked to the podium to announce he wouldn’t be voting in favor of it. Meanwhile, his move sparked raucous applause from the Democrats.
But what’s interesting about his decision to vote against the GOP was that he campaigned on repealing Obamacare. In fact, over the years he’s been a fierce critic of the law, so one would think that given the opportunity to get rid of it, McCain would take advantage.
However, you’d be wrong.
Let’s have a look at his past comments about Obamacare:
Yeah, it’s like that. He literally won re-election by campaigning on repeal, only to turn around and stab us all in the back.
Meanwhile, in a statement he put out after the vote, he claimed to want bipartisan cooperation to repeal the law.
“From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people. The so-called ‘skinny repeal’ amendment the Senate voted on today would not accomplish those goals. While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens. 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.
What McCain said to Schumer:
It's clear McCain told several DEMOCRATS that he was going to vote against skinny repeal. NOT Republicans, DEMONCRATS! The ones just like him.
"Yeah, we really stuck it to Trump, didn't we. Just last week Trump was kissing my boots to get me to help defeat obamacare, and today we kicked him in the '_ss with them'.
I'm not happy with McCain, but this photo was not taken after his vote on Friday.
Does that change his vote? He is a democrap tried & true, people!
Joann: it's not about the photo on the video, it's about the vote! It is customary for media to use file photos on articles. Not every event has a photo available that was taken there.
I guess you didn't read the article about McCain winking at McConnell and both of them smiling at each other after the tally.
Windy, do you have a video or transcript of that? If so, please post.
Have there been any formal announcements from our state GOP categorically denouncing McCain's latest betrayal of AZ voters and his own party in particular? I'm not talking about a carefully worded, politically correct explanation, but a direct slam on his open disregard to the voters to whom he made numerous promises. Time for Lines to take a stand and let his true beliefs be widely known without any obfuscation whatsoever.
Stand by for that news ... which will never be heard from Mr. Lines. What about our "Congressmen words of wisdom" about the McCain vote? Where are they? Oh yeah, its all about congressional decorum to never talk bad about a member in the camp of a "united GOP".
I see a 3rd C E N S O R S H I P of McCain at county and state conventions in January.
The sad part of that is, he doesn't care if he is censured a dozen times, since he has so many rinos voting for him!!! Guess the only way we will get rid of him is his brain cancer doing the job!! His clone Flake is another one we need to censure and stop his rise to "stardom"! Just saying!
The GOP people who have the microphone and the media will never talk ill of McCain. Some of them depend on him to get re-elected, others just don't have the guts of Trump to stand up and be truthful. AZGOP is totally owned by McCain - for now.
McCain is no hero, see attachment. A friend down here in Cochise provided McCain with a ride touring the border- just the two of them. The personality change was dramatic - angry, mean tempered, foul mouthed, etc. true colors came out because he was away form the media and cameras. Besides not being a hero McCain takes dirty money. The McCain Institute, corrupt like the Clinton Foundation, takes money fro George Sorros.
YES a 3rd C E N S O R S H I P of McCain at county and state conventions in January will happen. Some of us are already working on that censorship petition. It is not sad. He does care when censured. Our dear senator was so angry that he purged the Tea Party and conservatives from the AZGOP. His influence during Robert Graham tenure as Chairman continues. The real purpose of the McCain infiltration of the AZGOP in 2017 is to ensure Fake Flake gets re-elected. Lines probably will be recalled. The corruption of the AZGOP, voter fraud, etc.
The GOP people with the microphone and the media may never talk ill of McCain. PCs all over AZ are sounding off and taking action. Pilgrims some of us are ready to kick ass and drink whisky and we are out of whisky.
I also added the angry side of McCain as an attachment. Please what ever you do - get involved.
ENJOY. If not a PC get an appointment from your County republican committee chairman/woman.
