GOP health bill all but dead; McCain again deals the blow

There are 564 comments on the NJ.com story from Sep 22, 2017, titled GOP health bill all but dead; McCain again deals the blow. In it, NJ.com reports that:

Sen. John McCain declared his opposition Friday to the GOP's last-ditch effort to repeal and replace "Obamacare," dealing a likely death blow to the legislation and, perhaps, to the Republican Party's years of vows to kill the program. "I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal," McCain said in a statement, referring to the bill by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana.

Donald Trump is proof, hat too many people are incompetent and inherently unable to judge the competence of candidates or the quality of their ideas. They simply lack the mental tools needed to make meaningful judgments. As a result, no amount of information or facts about political candidates can override the inherent inability of so many voters to accurately evaluate them. These same people have finally found a self-delusional presidential candidate that matches their own intellectual skills.

If the bill had included Ran Paul's request concerning the ability to purchase insurance across state lines, it might have went some where. John McCain is blind concerning the Democrats and their motives.

And the Mavrick strikes a blow to slay tyranny yet again.

Looks like McCain, Collins, and Rand Paul are no votes on Trumpcare 4.0

Graham tried to buy Alaska support offering a boat load of public funds taken from larger blue States. So Alaska having access to the "Klondike Kickback" might not be counted on this go round to do what's best for the nation.

Rand Paul has a legitimate beef, but McCain is just a Democrat sympathizer and a stick in the mud.

Which is why the United States needs to invest in a very good healthcare system.

Universal healthcare is a much better way to spend our hard earned tax dollars.

So even a person with a debilitating mental condition has more sense & political wherewithal than a "conservative"?

The McCaniac (the media invented phony "hero") is even more petty that the American people had believed. He was rejected from the presidency by the American people, yet envy causes him to take it out on one who wasn't - President Trump. McCain not only disgraces his family's proud military history, but he disgraces his nation as well.

Sen. McCain should have lost his vote when it was determined he had a brain disability. He isn't thinking. Arizona should be ashamed for re electing this poor man.

The Republicans have a very short window of opportunity to prove they are not loosers and if they are shot down, they only have their own members to blame.

No worries, the president will soon be talking to the people who hold the real power to accomplish something in the congress.

Nancy & Chuck will show Donald the way.
