We Now Know Why McCain Killed the Obamacare Repeal, & It’s Bad (Details)

Guest post by John S. Roberts at Right Observer:

Arizona’s John McCain was one of three GOP senators to kill a ‘skinny’ repeal of Obamacare earlier this year. Here’s the ridiculous reason why…

From Daily Caller:

Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona called his Senate colleagues’ campaign to repeal and replace Obamacare this summer “insanity,” and told President Donald Trump he was “sorry” he could not vote the party line, Esquire reports.

Trump, much like he did with other senators, called McCain to try to get him to vote yes for the Senate’s eleventh-hour bill to repeal Obamacare in late July, known as the “skinny repeal.”

“I thank you, Mr. President, for your involvement,” McCain told Trump minutes before he shot down the party’s last attempt to overhaul Obamacare. “I cannot vote for something called Skinny Repeal. I can’t do it. I didn’t even see the bill until today. I mean, this is insanity. I appreciate the call and now I have to go vote, and I’m sorry.”

More on McCain, via The Hill:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ripped President Trump in an interview, saying he doesn’t think the president has “principles and beliefs.”

“I don’t agree with the way he’s conducting his presidency, obviously,” McCain said during an interview with Esquire.

“He’s an individual that unfortunately is not anchored by a set of principles. I think he’s a person who takes advantage of situations.”

McCain said Trump was “successful” as a builder and an entrepreneur.

“But I don’t think he has the fundamental underpinnings of principles and beliefs,” he said.

How does this awful man keep getting re-elected?
