McCain Wants Congress to Pass Gang of 8 Amnesty Plan When He Returns
Liar John McCain, who opposed the repeal of Obamacare after making that a major promise in his 2016 campaign, wants Congress to pass the Gang of Ocho amnesty bill when he returns after cancer treatments.
The GOP Do-Nothing Congress took all of August off for vacations and will not meet again until September. The GOP Congress has yet to repeal Obamacare, build a border wall or cut taxes. The do-nothing Congress blocked President Trump from recess appointments while they are away.
The Gang of Eight wants amnesty now.
McCain flew back to Washington last month to kill the repeal of Obamacare.
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) wants Congress to pass the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive amnesty bill when he returns to the Senate after getting treatments for brain cancer.
According to The Arizona Republic, McCain, before leaving Washington to get cancer treatments in Arizona, reportedly spoke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about joining forces again to pass the “Gang of Eight” bill. After joining Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to defeat the GOP’s “skinny repeal” of Obamacare, McCain, who has always wanted to be known as a straight-talking independent, was lionized by Democrats and the legacy media, with CNN paying homage to his “maverick moment.”
Referring to the “Gang of Eight” bill, McCain told the Republic on Thursday that he wanted “to reintroduce the same package that was passed through the United States Senate and never taken up in the House.”
“Immigration reform is one of the issues I’d like to see resolved,” McCain reportedly added. “I’ve got to talk to him (Schumer) about when would be the best time. I think there are all kinds of deals to be made out there. I really do.”
McCain worked with Schumer, along with Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Michael Bennet (D-CO), on the “Gang of Eight” bill, which was introduced in 2013. The Senate passed the bill but the House never took it up due to the massive amount of public pressure Representatives faced against the bill.
