Senator John McCain of Arizona announced on Friday that he would oppose the latest proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving Republican leaders with little hope of succeeding in their last-ditch attempt to dismantle the health law.

Mr. McCain, who killed the previous repeal effort with his dramatic “no” vote in July, released a statement saying that he could not “in good conscience” support the latest proposal, by Senators Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is Mr. McCain’s closest friend in the Senate.

“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal,” Mr. McCain said. “I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will affect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it.”


You know, I defended the man as a human being a few months back when some were voicing joy over his brain cancer diagnosis... now I'm sort of feeling a bit of buyer's remorse.

Songbird, in attempting to defend his indefensible 'no' vote on the first Obamacare repeal/replace vote, attempted to use the excuse that he needed his governor's support to vote in favor of the repeal. Earlier this week, AZ Governor Doug Ducey tweeted that the Cassidy-Graham bill was the best chance we had to repeal and replace Obamacare and urged all of Congress to vote in favor of the bill... well John, there's your governor's support but where the hell are you? Behind the lines stabbing your own allies in the back as usual, you worthless excuse for a lawmaker. It boggles my mind that McCain has been protected from being tossed out of DC on his ass all these years by Lindsey Graham, yet today Songbird stabbed his closest ally in the back with this disloyalty.

McCain is the Nancy Pelosi of Republicans.

They need to put a muzzle on him or suffer the consequences.

So do you support politicians passing laws without knowing the ramifications of said laws?

Reminds me of when Pelosi said "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it".

Obamacare is an entitlement program that favors the politicians in DC.

It's never going away.

I have no love for mc"rino" but I can't say I disagree with him.

It could be argued that every single law they pass in DC is like that.

I didn't hear the same vehemence when Paul said he wouldn't support this. Why the difference?

I really don't know what to think anymore. I do know that neither party is worth jack. Premiums are going up, peoples insurances are being dropped. People cant go to the doctor unless they sign over their house along with their first born. I was reading this article and stumbled on this onefreebeacon.com... . There are a lot of people carrying others on their backs and no one seems to give a fluck about them. These people have to make sacrifices because they aren't eligible for subsidies. What a screwed up system.

Yes, god forbid a Senator vote their conscience instead of towing the party line.

He's just pissed because the only people voting for him are the locals. He needs to go. Has he been hanging with Mad Maxine by any chance??

Well Paul has been caught on hot mic saying he will oppose anything trump and never support him "not now" "not tomorrow" "not ever"...so we expect that from him. We had some hopes with McCain mainly by giving him the benefit of the doubt but apparently he doesn't even deserve that. Both of them are a couple of douche bags.

Anyone without their own opinion and that can be bought is and always will be a bi*%*$ in my book.

Paul is about as libertarian as his father. As such, I wouldn't expect him to support anything that repealed one piece of legislation and replaced it with more legislation.

Apparently, at least one does, motivated perhaps in part by his own situation and very possible imminent death.

Whatever works to keep these Republican abominations from being enacted.

Perhaps now they'll be ready to work with the rest of the Congress to get something done.

I think many politicians on the left have made it perfectly clear that they will not be working with trump or the republicans.
Heaven forbid they would compromise for the good of the country.

You mean, like the Republicans 2008-2017 wouldn't work with the Obama Administration?

Yeah, Congress is a mess.
