McCain’s legacy won’t be a heroic act he performed 44 years ago, but the act of ultimate betrayal to millions he performed THIS year.
No surprise though, the man has always been a garbage conservative and worthy of contempt.
I held my nose and voted for him when he ran for President. Even though I really disliked him and was ticked off that the Republican Primary operates in such a way that a handful of states narrows down the playing field. So when it’s North Carolina’s turn, the only one left on the ballot is the Establishment’s Anointed One.
But apparently it was McCain’s turn to play in ’08, so they pushed a wish-washy conservative. Then it was Romney’s turn in ’12, who was also a wish-washy conservative. Because the Establishment wanted to pull in a bunch of moderate voters while ignoring their conservative base.
Good job you hacks.
You deserve being Trumped in 2016. (Who ironically, pulled in more moderates and minorities than both of them without ignoring the conservative base)
And McCain’s most recent act of betrayal to his voters, erases the multi-decade old Hero status he once had..
Because he’s a scumbag politician who says whatever it takes to be elected then reneges on what he said he would do afterwards, only to lie again for his next re-election.
During the 2016 Re-Election when he was getting battered like a pinata by his opposition, he repeatedly said he supported the Repeal of Obamacare. There are YouTube video’s of nothing but him saying repeatedly that we needed to repeal it. Over and over. I guess he said it often enough that his constituents believed him and gave him another term.
“It is clear that any serious attempt to improve our health care system must begin with a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, and I will continue fighting on behalf of the people of Arizona to achieve it.” – McCain
“For the first time in history a major entitlement reform was rammed through the Congress without a single vote from the other side. I fought for weeks and weeks and weeks against Obamacare. They would not allow us an amendment. There was not a single amendment allowed. No input from the minority party.” – McCain
Then when the slimy worm had the opportunity to make it good on his promise, he craw-fishes back to the Democrats side.
Hero? No, Traitor.
You stood up for your fellow servicemen for five and a half years in captivity. Refusing release without them. Even though you desperately needed medical help and were tortured and beaten in an attempt to force you to plead guilty to war crimes. That’s unbelievably impressive.
Then you abandon over a million Arizona civilians who put their hope in your false promises.
That’s more disgraceful and dishonorable than abandoning servicemen.
They KNEW their country would try to get them back, they knew they were expected to sacrifice and suffer for a greater good(even if drafted).
But you, you pathetic little weasel, were not only the crushing blow to a million of your own voters, but the entire country who is suffering under the medical and economic burden of Obamacare.
I guess civilians need to sacrifice and suffer so you could stay in power, right?
Did you know McCain’s state had one of the highest premium jumps in the nation at 116% this year? To bad for them I suppose.
Personally I’m surprised the Arizonians aren’t sharpening pitch forks and lighting torches.
But this is not completely unexpected, the man has always sucked at being a conservative.
I would wager money that he relished that moment. The opportunity to stab Trump in the back after those hurtful words Trump said about how he had more respect for servicemen who aren’t captured.
Because revenge is more important than the benefits of Skinny Repeal:
“The Health Care Freedom Act would have repealed Obamacare’s individual and employer mandate, provided states flexibility on Obamacare insurance regulations through waivers, increased Health Savings Account (HSA) contribution limits, repealed Obamacare’s medical device tax, and defunded Planned Parenthood for one year.” -Breitbart
You know what really bothers me? (Among a bunch of other things about him)
He has brain cancer.
He also has Congressional Healthcare, not Joe Blow Healthcare like the rest of us.
He’s not at the VA Hospital.
Because THAT is Obamacare, the VA, a prime example of Federal Run Healthcare.
You know, the one people are shooting themselves in the parking lot of. Or dying while sitting in the waiting room. With no other option except to wait and pray for help.
He’ll be just fine, taken care of with the best of Healthcare paid for by… US.
But his constituents don’t deserve better than what they have.
He’s not alone.
That Lisa Murkowski lady from Alaska, should be recalled as well for doing the same thing. Because all she has done this year is vote AGAINST every single Obamacare Repeal/Revamp/whatever bill. After running on a platform against it.
“This law is not affordable for anyone in Alaska. That is why I will support the bill that repeals the ACA and wipes out its harmful impacts. I can’t watch premiums for Alaskans shoot up by 30 percent or more each year, see businesses artificially constrained, or see the quality of public education decline.” – Murkowski (2016)
Seven years of trying to repeal this horrific fiasco that turned out just like all these crazy right wing loons said it would.(Funny how they KEEP being right about things) Oh, all the Republicans banded together to vote for a Repeal Bill in 2015(Including Murkowski and McCain). Even though they KNEW Obama would veto it – but this way they could all come back home and say they voted against it and there was nothing they could do without the Presidency.
First the Republicans needed the House, we gave it to them. Then they said they needed the Senate, we gave it to them. Then they said they needed the Presidency, we gave it to them.
And suddenly they can’t come to agreement, because it’s FOR REAL this time.
Apparently before they were playing Pretend Congress and once the ante went up they decided they didn’t want to play Real Congress.
So all those votes and bills, all those demands and requests of their voters, all the thinking and figuring and infighting…
Finally when it all comes time to poop or get off the pot…
We find out who was full of it the entire time.
