Senator John “Songbird” McCain never quite fails to disappoint every single person who voted him into the position he is in. He was a traitor in the military an he is a traitor to the American people as well.
On Friday our favorite RINO announced that he cannot and will not vote for the latest ObamaCare repeal proposal. Three “no’s” will kill the bill, and this is the GOP’s last chance this year to get it passed.
McCain said, “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,” in reference to the new bill by senators Lindsey Graham and Bill Cassidy.
The Hill reports:
Republicans have been racing toward a vote on health care next week, ahead of a Sept. 30 deadline for approving the bill on a majority vote.
They had been hopeful that McCain’s close friendship with Graham and the support for the bill from Arizona’s governor would be enough to win him over.
McCain suggested the decision had weighed on him, adding that he takes “no pleasure” in it.
“The bill’s authors are my dear friends, and I think the world of them. I know they are acting consistently with their beliefs and sense of what is best for the country. So am I,” he said.
Graham quickly weighed in on McCain’s decision, saying he disagrees but their friendship will survive.
“My friendship with John McCain is not based on how he votes but respect for how he’s lived his life and the person he is,” he said on Twitter.
Graham added that “I respectfully disagree” with McCain and “intend to push forward for state-centric health care vs Washington-knows-best health care.”
Cassidy said he was “disappointed” in McCain’s decision but pledged that he would continue to work for families “being penalized because they can’t afford insurance.”
