McCain's wrong on Obamacare bill

Then-House Speaker Dennis Hastert, a contemporary of McCain who had managed to avoid Vietnam service because of a sports injury, acted as their voice and said publicly that McCain knew nothing of sacrifice, that "McCain ought to visit our young men and women at Walter Reed and Bethesda" - two military hospitals in the Washington area - so he could see in person what others had sacrificed on the battlefield. By a vote of 43 to 57, the Senate rejected one version that included Sen.

"Would have been better off if he died in Nam".

"It's a tough challenge, of course, but [I'm] getting the best care you can possibly have". If you can name one piece of major legislation that Mitch McConnell has helped become law, I would like to know it.

However, the senator emphasized that he was working and that he would "be ready to go back to work in September".

Earlier that day, Sen.

"The Catholic Health Association (CHA) is pleased and relieved that we will now have an opportunity to work together in a bipartisan way to improve the ACA", Keehan said in a statement after the vote. Our responsibilities are important, vitally important, to the continued success of our Republic. Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski and vote against the GOP proposal was a surprise. But I know the private market has its own issues.

The president followed up with a threat - Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke reportedly phoned Murkowski and Alaskan Sen. I am inspired and feel hopeful when I see students participating in the legislative process at the Edward M. Kennedy Institute in Boston, as they attempt to pass legislation through regular order, reach across the aisle to find common ground, and experience democracy in the way our founders intended.

It was John McCain playing the Jimmy Stewart role in "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" on the Senate floor early Friday morning, as he rejected his Republican Party's scheme to repeal Obamacare. "Evil person, who just chose to kill thousands", read a top response to one particularly popular tweet noting that "McCain left hospital stay paid by taxes on flight paid by taxes to remove health insurance from taxpayers".

People around the country are applauding Sen. They tell us that they have a new appreciation for the importance of compromise and listening to the other side. She also thanked Senators Collins, McCain, and Murkowski, Senate Democrats and Independents who "called, emailed, rallied and wrote to object to this seriously flawed bill". Over the weekend, the Donald Trump administration pushed the Senate to take up the bill again, and several observers argued that the striking thing about the bill was just how close it came to passage, and even how close it could still be. It's important to applaud them for stopping this train wreck of a healthcare bill. Leaving the Republicans to do what they promised alone. "Let's move forward, not back", said Richtman.

Kennedy, the Democratic senator who died in 2009 of the same brain cancer now threatening McCain's life, considered comprehensive health care reform his life's mission - a cause to which he remained dedicated to the end. He is someone to actually look up to and admire.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. "They don't want anything done for the public good". But there's no sense wasting column inches to justify my opinion. A recently released USA Today/Suffolk University poll at the end of June says that "just 12 percent of Americans support the Senate Republican health care plan".
