Portraits in Courage: John McCain

Cheap Suits, Folded

Love doll or John McCain?

As predicted, Grandpa Walnuts has gone from being very concerned, very concerned to, well, read it for yourself:

Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, generally praised the bill, and said it was better than Obamacare in “100 ways.”

However, he also said he still needed more time to study it before deciding if he’d support it, and in particular wanted feedback from his home state’s governor on Medicaid provisions.

    I would like for him to list the 100 different ways. Or 3.

      Or one. (and that his personal taxes will be lower doesn’t count as a way that a HEALTH CARE – insurance really, but still – bill is better.)

    McWalnuts is a fucking war hero!

    McCain knows Trumpcare is better in one way: Obama kicked his ass in 2008.

      Oh, FFS, you are probably right. And that the current R talking points say so (he’s ex-military, so probably knows how to follow orders, sort of)
      The thing that makes this so unethical in my mind is that all they have to do to fix *this* problem is to go back to calling it the ACA (or even PPACA – that one is not as recognizable) or rename it to, say Romney Care or credit the Heritage Foundation’s contribution. Call those health care exchanges the “Heritage Exchanges”. “That’s right, the whole PPACA was a Republican invention! Boo-Yah!” I mean, sure, that won’t work now, but why couldn’t they just get copies of the original ACA bill, reprint it with new dates and heading and then pass that so that they can take credit? No, still won’t work now. Mitch has his own turtle-y agenda. And just claiming credit for the ACA and fixing the problems from there is not good enough for him.
      Crap – all the “good” middle school shenanigans won’t work, but the name calling and bullying get replayed over and over. Crap. Time to go call my senators again. They vote next week, right?
