Lying RINO John McCain Says He Cannot Support Latest Obamacare Repeal Bill – But

McCain campaigned one way and legislated/votes the opposite way.

I don’t believe that he is the only politician to do so.

Of course Trump said he was going to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it, so honesty is a problem across the Republican Party.

I can’t be the only one that thinks the article title is less than charitable. :neutral_face:

RINO, SCHMINO. He caucuses with the Republicans and that’s what counts. Not everyone is a rubber stamp in the party.


The subtitle of the article says, “His hatred for Trump and the working man takes precedence over his campaign promises.” In what way does opposing a horrible bill such as Cassidy-Graham where millions of people would lose healthcare coverage show hatred for working men? And even if McCain promised to repeal the ACA, should he vote for any replacement no matter how bad it is?


In the old days, a thread would have to be started based on a news article from a legitimate source. Gatewaypundit is not a legitimate news source, but we’re not sure if the old rules hold.

what the article doesn’t say is that he said, he would have passed it if it was a bipartisan bill.

why would this make a difference? the bill should stand on what it does and not who signed on to it.

if he is waiting for the dems to fix ocare he is in for a long wait.

he is a rino looking for headlines

of the millions who would lose coverage, how many would voluntary give it up due to not wanting it? one report indicates most of the “millions” would be these people who are only in it to avoid the tax.

We will can test who this will be handled in the new forum by flagging it.

What he said was that the subject is too big and important to rush through something that is only supported by one party, and that more debate is needed to determine if the bill is even a good bill. People need confidence that what is decided by our government has some stability. How can they feel confident about their health care when this bill has not be even been scored by the CBO?

McCain certainly did not say that he would support this exact bill with no further debate or CBO scoring if only some Democrats signed on to it.

The Bishop’s agree with John McCain.

In fact, the latest from the USCCB is that the current Obamacare Repeal, flunks the morality test.



bottom line he would have supported it.

he is grandstanding for history

“I would consider supporting legislation similar to that offered by my friends Senators Graham and Cassidy were it the product of extensive hearings, debate and amendment. But that has not been the case,” he said.

have they rated ocare and all that is wrong with it?

this is of course a ymmv topic. to some it is the best thing since the wheel. to others it has decreased everything about healthcare and needs to be fixed or repealed. the classic walk in my shoes scenario…

They supported Obamacare but desired improvements.

Over all, they support a single payer system, as I do.

“If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor”.

But you raise a good point. Collins, Paul and McCain all voted for 7 YEARS to repeal ObamaCare, and now when it really matters…

Then they (and you) can forget about end-of-life care and free care for illegal immigrants.


But you and they will still (for a time) be able to virtue signal to the secular left if that is the wish.

BTW, this is one of the reasons why many Catholics aren’t listening to the USCCB anymore. They don’t do their homework and do not fundamentally understand the issues.

The operative word here is scandal.

This is very casually uncharitable statement to make about the bishops. Remember, they are not our elected representatives. They have moral authority from the God.


The bishops (that includes Pope Francis) are NOT above correction. Our first duty as Catholics is to the Truth, not to the clergy or any authority of man.

Their demonstrated lack of knowledge on man-made climate change and health care is why I longer give money to the Roman Catholic Church.

In short, my family doesn’t work all day to give to people who refuse to understand other points of view or even very basic things.

And this is also why a lot of Catholics would rather listen to right-wing Protestants, Milo and skeptics than the USCCB or the Vatican.

Hopefully, I’ve made this clear enough so I don’t have to keep repeating myself on here.

I agree with McCain, yes Jimmy Kimmel and: the American Medical Association, Heart association, March of Dimes, Diabetes Association, Lung society, AARP, and the literal hundreds of other professional medical associations that this repeal bill is absolutely terrible.
