John McCain Releases Statement After Screwing GOP, Americans by Killing Obamacare Repeal

Senator McCain ran on repealing Obamacare.
He is a liar.

John McCain flew back to Washington DC this week to lecture Americans and kill the repeal of Obamacare.

Senator McCain has cancer.
He was given a hero’s welcome when he returned.

John McCain does not have Obamacare.
He has a special plan for Senators and lawmakers.
He does not have to worry about the Arizona premiums which have doubled since Obamacare was implemented.

Last night Senator McCain, 48 Democrats and two fellow Republicans killed Obamacare repeal.

Senator McCain released a statement after he killed Obamacare repeal.

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement today on voting “no” on the so-called “skinny repeal” of Obamacare:

“From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people.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 While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health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.”
