Sen. John McCain campaigned, like many other GOP politicians, on the promise to repeal Obamacare.
But as soon as he had a credible opportunity to do it, he voted ‘nay’ on the so-called ‘skinny repeal’.
Now, at the eleventh hour, his bosom Senate buddy, Sen. Lindsey Graham has tossed a lifeline to the GOP with a reasonable bill that would repeal Obamacare and actually offer a liferaft for those already on it.
But that’s just not good enough for McCain.
Which begs the question whether any Obamacare repeal would ever meet his approval.
He’s done more to ensure Obamacare remains the law of the land than some of his Democrat colleagues who are willing to get rid of it.
With friends like these, who needs enemies?
Here’s more from Redstate…
Sen. John McCain has just firmly cemented his legacy as the Savior of ObamaCare.
Not satisfied with his surprise vote killing Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s so-called “skinny repeal” of ObamaCare, the Healthcare Freedom Act, after making a dramatic Ted Kennedy-like return to the Senate after beginning treatment for his newly discovered brain cancer. Sen. McCain pounded the last nail into the coffin of the effort to repeal ObamaCare.
McCain, the failed presidential candidate defeated by Barack Obama in 2008, today announced that he would vote against his close friend, Lindsey Graham’s, last ditch effort to take down the hated ObamaCare — the Graham-Cassidy bill. The solid McCain just gave former president Obama by saving the signature accomplishment of the epic failure that was the Obama presidency also ended the GOP’s efforts to keep seven years of promises to American voters that Republicans would repeal ObamaCare.
