Turncoat Republicans sabotage President Trump’s attempt to modify ObamaCare for the good of the American healthcare system.
ObamaCare is failing on a monumental scale, thousands are going to be left with no coverage options and millions will be left with only one. This is unacceptable especially considering that Obama promised Americans that they could keep their plan if they were already satisfied with it. That was a blatant lie which is obvious eight years later. A repeal needs to happen and fast, but instead of supporting our President and his own party, Senator McCain voted against Trump’s proposed “skinny plan” and in a 51-49 vote the plan was rejected. Thanks Obama will now be thanks McCain.
McCain returned to the Senate chamber on Friday — weeks after he was diagnosed with aggressive brain cancer after the removal of a large clot above his left eye — to join Republican Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska to vote against the “skinny repeal” of Obamacare. The amendment was defeated, 51-49.
Jack Posobiec, author of “Citizens for Trump,” told radio talk show host Chris Salcedo on Monday that, following the vote, a staffer near McCain’s office overheard the “maverick” senator say: “Let’s see Donald make America great again now.”
As The Blaze reported, Posobiec also questioned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s failure to lock down the vote: “Where is the leadership?” he asked.
