“If I hadn’t admitted that to myself before this summer, a stage 4 cancer diagnosis acts as ungentle persuasion,” McCain continues. “I’m freer than colleagues who will face the voters again. I can speak my mind without fearing the consequences much. And I can vote my conscience without worry. I don’t think I’m free to disregard my constituents’ wishes, far from it. I don’t feel excused from keeping pledges I made. Nor do I wish to harm my party’s prospects. But I do feel a pressing responsibility to give Americans my best judgment.”
McCain did screw us with a no to repeal OCare and it had no impact except to screw the US people.

I couldn't afford health insurance because I work part time so I can be at home to take care of my sick mother.
But the aca changed that and I had a colonoscopy done because of pain I have had in my side for years.
I had precancerous growths in my colon that I had to get removed. I am having the last of them removed on the 12th of may.
The gastrologist told me that i was lucky I had it done when I did. Because it was for sure going to be colon cancer at some point soon.
Never would have had this done without the aca.
After the last of it is removed I plan on making a thread about it. Just to show people that the aca has done some good and it's not just for the unemployed.

His statement sounds quite lucid to me. Your insipid statements regarding his character reflect more on yourself than him.
Believe me, the rest of us paid for you to have that
McCain needs to represent everyone in his district
