McCain in Surprise Vote Kills Bill to Repeal Obamacare

Recommended Posts

http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/344270-mccain-votes-to-kill-gops-skinny-backup-obamacare-repeal-plan

I don't know why this isn't being talked about here more.

I was disappointed that Obamacare didn't go as far as I wanted it but it's better than anything the Republicans had planned, so I'm glad it's staying, hopefully the Democrats take back the Senate in 2018 to forever kill any more attempts to repeal it, but I'm surprised myself that it was McCain who was the one who killed the attempt to repeal it, I hated him fiercely for his role in supporting overthrowing so many governments in the Middle East, but now he's redeemed himself slightly with this vote.

Nestor, I don't know why it's not being talked about more here,  either. I just know for myself that I have had to distance myself from politics.  I hope that I can find a balance and get back into it.  I live in Europe but I am American. I have been to protests here and have made many calls to my representatives.  Then I had a relapse into depression and had to stop.  I get an average of 10 emails every day with subject headings like "It's Worse than We Thought!!! " and "This is Disastrous!!! ". I just can't take it right now. (And they all want donations). 

Like I said, I hope to find a balance and be able to be politically active without getting so overwhelmed by it all.

I think McCain's vote was definitely a surprise for Mitch McConnell--Did you see McConnell's face after McCain cast his vote?------Priceless.!!!

You can count on me to vote DEM in 2018....I think a lot of folks are going to be doing the same, IMO.

Never forget that without the longstanding  support/defectione of Collins and Mikulski (sp?), it also would have passed.

its easy to forget the two women involved when they prove themselves reliable, as opposed to the one who went against the grain

 I'm not forgetting them....So thankful they didn't support this piece of crap bill, either.

I have respected McCain for a long time, despite our considerable polical differences. This makes me respect him more.

I wonder if people aren't discussing the health care bill because it hurts too much.
