He is incapacitated by brain cancer. He is not his usual self. There really should be a rule that says no senator who suffers from brain cancer can continue to hold office.

Phooey...

When it came to war Congress were more than happy to work with Obama...

Im sure the Dems will do the same for President Trump.

Heaven forbid they would compromise for the good of the country.


Right, like the GOP did with Obama.


Still I consider McCain one of my brothers in Arms unlike that draft dodging POS Trump.

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”...


Salient point, McCain talking about a conscience.

So true, I wasn't calling out the left in general just as of the last election.
We have heard so many politicians at election time claim wanting to reach across the isle.
Never once has one addressed why the isle even exists.

Now I wonder why Rand would say something like that?

Let's see: A first time politician makes personal attacks against a sitting Senator, then wonders why that Senator won't support his agenda. I think Rand summed up his positions on Trump pretty clearly here:

And here:

Schumer and Pelosi wanted to work with Trump on DACA ... didn't you see all the Press?

LOL ... it's bread and circuses, just as it ever was.

Just out of curiosity, did you like the draft dodger clinton?
And I was speaking of the left currently.
Who shall be the first to take the high road?

You are mistaking Paul Ryan's statement for Rand Paul. Paul Ryan (congressman and Speaker of the House) said those words, not Rand Paul.

It could definitely be argued and I don't doubt that one bit.

Does that mean we should advocate that kind of thing with this bill too?

At least he has the balls to do the right thing. This bill sucks, and they all know it sucks.

Speaking as an amateur internet scientist, I can calmly and rationally tell you (with all confidence) that the brain of the sub-species homo politicus is vestigial in nature and serves no purpose.

Maybe the brain surgery made him smarter? I agree with him, we shouldn't support or oppose a law unless we know what the effects of it will be.

LOL Maybe I'm getting mixed up too, then. Rand Paul opposes the current healthcare legislation, just like McCain. So I thought the person I was responding to was making a point that Rand Paul was just blindly opposing Trump, and was using that quote as evidence.

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


A history of disappointing lies from McCain. Rand Paul never was a repeal and replace proponent, he was purely repeal, so at least he's consistent. McCain, however, has been all over the place on this argument, and his word has been proven to be worth nothing.

LOL Rand Paul does oppose it but he did not make the statements the other poster attributed to him. I think Rand Paul opposes it on principle. McCain actually ran for re-election on repealing Obamacare so I'm just guessing that he opposes it because Trump is for it. He's just that kinda guy. I have mixed feelings on the issue. There are some serious problems that need to be addressed but congress isn't really concerned about what's best for their constituents. Most of them care more about if it will keep them in power and lining their pockets.

Good. Healthcare proposals with only one party voting for them are not what we need. We need a bipartisan proposal that won't be dismantled the next time power changes in Washington.

Imagine if Medicare changed every 4 to 8 years. Obamacare didn't work out, neither will a Republican only version.

Healthcare is a Bipartisan concern. It should be a bipartisan solution.

McCain is living up to his reputation as the "Maverick" of the Senate. He put principles above his friendship with Lindsay Graham.

Then again...McCain could suddenly come back next week and say, "Hey Mitch.. Let's vote to repeal this horrible law! What's taking so long? We've voted 30 times before to repeal it. It ain't that hard to do!"
