Senate health care vote stalls due to McCain surgery
« on: July 16, 2017, 05:48:40 AM »
The Republican-Democrats are using Comrade John McShitstain's suddenly-out-of-nowhere surgery to stall their version of Husseincare.

"Better Care Act" is a game played by people who never expected Trump to win, to begin with. The Republicans are now forced into being leaders and not schmucks. Watch them squirm, inventing reasons to stall their vote....

Quote
Following the surgery, McConnell wished Senator McCain a speedy recovery. McConnell then said, “While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act.”

Senate leadership previously scheduled the Senate healthcare bill — named the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) — for next week, although the leadership will not hold the vote until McCain recovers from surgery. Sens. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Susan Collins (R-ME) currently oppose the BCRA; the bill would likely fail in Sen. McCain’s absence.

Someone needs to point out that Stain's insurance package is far better and cheaper than anything the rest of the pawns are allowed to purchase.

Yeah, man, what's the deal here?   Just give him a couple of aspirin and he can sweat it out - be a man of the people, be like us!

(If they HAVE to do surgery, put him under, and take your time locating the liberal & RINO parts of his brain - remove those too!)

Doctors reportedly removed a 2.5-inch blood clot from his forehead.

Thank heavens it was nowhere near his anus, and his source of thinking.

He's 80 years old.  Hopefully this health incident will prompt him to finally retire.

I don't want to make light of his condition but he always manages to gum up the works for the GOP.

The stall didn't matter. Obamacare remains in effect and both McCain and McConnell continue to burn undeserved air.

As of this morning it appears the GOP health insurance bill is dead. In my view, we dodged a bullet. Time to start over.

It was a charade and would not have solved the problem. The only thing it would have done is bail out democrats from their disaster.
