Senator McCain, despite battling brain cancer, wouldn’t miss the vote for repealing Obamacare.
He flew back to Washington DC this week to lecture Americans and kill the repeal of the health care act.
McCain was welcomed as a hero, and got a standing ovation when he appeared on Senate floor.
The fact is, John McCain does not have Obamacare. He enjoys a special treatment designed for Senators and lawmakers, and doesn’t have to worry about the Arizona premiums which have doubled since Obamacare was implemented.
Last night, Senator McCain joined 48 Democrats and two fellow Republicans and killed Obamacare repeal, reports The Gateway Pundit.
After that, McCain released a statement, saying:
“From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people.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 While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health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.”
“I’ve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote. We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacare’s collapse, including in my home state of Arizona where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are fleeing the marketplace. We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of aisle, heed the recommendations of nation’s governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people. We must do the hard work our citizens expect of us and deserve.”
Last September, McCain advised Democrats to wake up to the failure of Obamacare.
Headed to the floor to speak about the new health care regulations related to Obamacare – we must repeal and replace.
