Two months ago, Arizona Senator John McCain betrayed the Republican Party by shooting down the Obamacare repeal bill. Unfortunately, it looks like he is about to betray us all once again by shooting down the latest Obamacare repeal bill for the second time.
Freedom Daily reported that Republican senators are trying to repeal and replace Obamacare one last time before the September 30 deadline. Drafted by Senators Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, the bill would replace the Affordable Care Act’s insurance subsidies with block grants to states.
Sadly, McCain and a few others could very well stop the bill from being passed.
McCain sounds very much like a no on TrumpCare, calls for markups, amendments, debate in scrum. "I'm not supportive of the bill yet."

On Monday, McCain spoke out to criticize the rushed process that would lead to a possible vote as soon as next week.
“The governor of Arizona is favorably inclined, but I am going to have to have a lot more information,” McCain said, going on to reiterate his call for committee hearings and amendments, known as “regular order.”
“We should be going through regular order,” he said. “I’ve said that about 12 times.”
The bottom line is that McCain’s constituents want the Obamacare repeal to come to fruition. By continuing to side with the Democrats on this, McCain is betraying the people who put him where he is today.
