Healthcare Vote Delayed as McCain Recovers

July 16, 2017

Washington, D.C.- Emerald Robinson, Political Consultant

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced late Saturday night that the Senate would once again delay next week’s planned vote on the Better Care Act.  This comes as Senator John McCain (R-AZ) undergoes eye surgery on Friday for a blood clot.

The announcement came via Twitter saying that “while John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act.”

Senator McCain, who has expressed reservations regarding certain aspects of the bill, is a crucial vote with 50 of 52 GOP Senators needed to pass the bill.  He will spend the week recovering at his home in Arizona per doctor’s orders.

McCain tweeted a thank you to the Mayo Clinic for “its excellent care” and said that he was looking forward to getting back to work.

  • Kay Crawford

    Maybe he won’t.

  • Freethinker00

    Please put John on Obama care.

  • Jay

    Love the way the below comments about McCain , shame on you all

  • clarinet

    Always, somehow, McCain is a huge obstacle to accomplishing anything.

  • A marcus Young

    Is McCain under the “care” of Obama era medicine? The kind of care that was used on Antonin Scalia when important issues came before the Supreme Court?….

  • CONSCIOUS

    I feel sorry for the guy and respect his military past but he is a flake that will flip either way. Hope he is enjoying their exclusive healthcare they have. double standard SOB’s

  • Warpaint

    Retire you old globalist fool, you have less than a year and I will cheer when they plant your ass and the souls of those you turned over to your buddies at the Hanoi Hilton I hope they are there to torture you John.

  • Steve Garay

    I think its time to remove or change this story

  • Jam Jenes

    Sorry, but I’m not sorry.

    Too bad it’s taken this long and a terminal illness to get this non-hero POS out of office.

  • Tado

    Brain Tumor.
    There is no hope.

  • James Edmond

    Repeal oblowmacare, do not replace.

  • He’s recovering? From a brain tumor? Something strange is going on. So, he was just about to get linked to the Russian Dossier…and now his brain tumor is no big deal?

  • Lawmadsen

    McCain is one rino I am glad is endangered, he epitomizes the swamp.

  • FreedomStorm

    Can’t Arizona appoint a temporary replacement for him in the US Senate ?

  • RURC

    Why wait. This butt head will not support the citizens of the United States. He has proven it time and time again. I dont feel bad for this guy in the least.

  • Chuck Prosser

    its time for him to go away.

  • Rodney

    Arizona keep electing this guy…in spite of the fact that he is exactly what is wrong with the Republican establishment….a bunch of old white guys in blue suits and red ties more concerned about staying in power than doing their job.
    I guess his “eye surgery” is just too demanding to allow him to go ahead and vote. He is an obstructionist to a better America.

  • All American

    Most of the attached comments regarding Senator McCain are related to a previous story.
    Eventhough I have disagreed with this Senators comments and actions in the past I am keeping John McCain and his family🙏🏻in prayers…

  • Tado

    You mean, he still will return to the office to work?
    To attack and attack and attack the President Trump?
    Is he Mentally-Fit like Trump?

  • EL PHUPPHY

    McCain is not going to recover. While I strongly disagree with his politics, it saddens me that he should die of brain cancer. I would not wish that on anyone other than Hillary and Bill. McCain has been called a war hero because he was a prisoner of war. I don’t think that makes you a hero, but others do, so be it. He obviously did serve in the military, so he has my respect for that. May he not suffer, and I hope the country remembers he tried to do some good, regardless of the outcome of his efforts.

  • Tado

    Those who lied about ACA and deceived us of their intent to repeal ACA should have Brain Tumor.
    Brain Tumor is the disease of liars and deceivers.
    It appears to be a politicsl animal’s disease.
    Nature cannot be denied its due.
    (Just saying.)

  • Tado

    Brain Tumor.
    Awesome!

  • Tado

    Brain Tumor is a terminal disease, right?

  • Tado

    Brain tumor.
    “recovery”
    Fake news.

  • rhinobuster

    Obamacare and McCain are now on the same trajectory. Hope they both move quickly to the hereafter.

  • Resist_Tyranny

    If you are looking for an excuse, any one will do, however, one monkey don’t stop no show. This actually has nothing to do with Songbird, the traitor to his country.

  • Wheel of misfortune

    I’m sure his insurance premiums are just peachy! And affordable!

  • 808Americans

    I have had and have my fair share of issue with Sen. Mccain.
    I do wish him well and a speedy recovery.
    However and respectfully; We are going to need that seat sir.
    Please.

  • JCAK

    He has the most aggressive type of cancer. Are we going to wait until completion of his treatment to do anything? Republicans have become such a huge disappointment. I hope everyone votes out the old guard during the primaries.

  • emaleroland

    An “unknown source” at the Mayo Clinic reported McRINO’s primary doctors said, “We did all we could but he pulled through anyway. #dagnabbit”

    • 808Americans

      Ohhhhh…
      Ouch…

  • Roy Beane

    And now, a few words from Argus Hamilton:…..

    Senator John McCain had emergency surgery Monday forcing a delay in the vote for the GOP health care plan. Other lawmakers on Capitol Hill face physical challenges. Nancy Pelosi says that her diagnosis of dementia will not interfere with her plans to impeach President Donald W. Bush.

  • limapie

    never really like you BUT John, take care and wishing you a full recovery

  • No Mas

    That’s stupid to delay.. John McCain getting an eye surgery is outpatient procedure…
    Are you saying he is too stupid and incapacitated to read, understand and vote by Thursday?
    Ridiculousness!!!!!

    • Biform25

      It was brain surgery, he is unfit to continue to serve.
      The story is out of date.

      MAGA!

  • Adelbert Wilber Jr

    I think there needs to be an age limit for our elected officials. We have age limits outlined for minimum age, but nothing on the other end as old age takes over and crystalline memory starts disappearing (i.e., Nancy Pelosi, John McCain, etc.)

  • Roy Beane

    Long past time for this worthless old RINO Dinosaur to go.

  • NNC9

    I wish the “news” reporters would tell us which part of the bill McCain opposes. We aren’t receiving much information.

  • john kirkland

    trump is smoking out the liberals in his own party, regardless of mccains service 40+ years ago, he continues to show his incompetence and by refusing to cast the vote assumes that he ensures the vote in az, my vote blacklist him now, he’s clearly traitor to his party, period, patriot yes, but traitor to republicans…

  • Harvester of Sorrow

    thank you to the Mayo Clinic for “its excellent care” ……. right… because you are not subject to the “health care” Laws you vote on for We the People…… FOAD McStain

    • Ronald D. Stevens Sr

      not sure what you are saying here, I have to vote on my health care, and as you know, voting is so rigged anymore, what good is it. All I’m saying is that the people, are the government, and should band together and find out what we can do about this problem, the rigged system we have to deal with year after year, but I’m afraid the problem has gone to far and runs so deep, we are, well you know what!

      • Harvester of Sorrow

        right… but the senators and congressmen have their own healthcare…. not some patch worked POS they vote on without reading for us…..

  • ocean

    Democrats own ObamaCare.
    ObamaCare will destroy Health Care in America.
    ObamaCare will implode and destroy Health Insurance Companies.
    Don’t worry, rich Global elites will be ok.
    Rich Global elites can afford to pay cash for private Medical Care.

  • Ronald D. Stevens Sr

    Have you heard the one that we are afraid of North Korean’s because of electrical impulse bombs, Don’t make me laugh, give it right back to them double fold. One big smoke cloud. What ya think?

  • Ronald D. Stevens Sr

    He has his insurance, now millions don’t, how can he live with that? President Trump didn’t do the Obama thing, Obama did. Now that all the bad apples fell from the tree of life, MONEY. From what i understand, all was aboard for the passing of this and all of a sudden, two aren’t, Somebody said something I guess! Why can’t we the people, who are the government, make some changes in Washington for the people. I think there should be a age cap on their terms, and voted out by the people that prove to be corrupted as the constitution was mandated.

  • Ronald D. Stevens Sr

    Why he of voted from his home? People do this all the time when they can’t be at work. Something is wrong in DenMark, to stop the passing, the Republicans have wanted to pass this for years, it would have been the same as him being there wouldn’t it? Don’t get it!

  • No Mas

    Krusty the Klown should serve America and groom his replacement yesterday!

  • Freethinker00

    John goes to Mayo clinic on our dime. Politicians suck!!!

  • Freethinker00

    Please Arizona enough of this turd.

  • DC Cooper

    that would be fine. but please don’t get treatment when you can’t pay, because then I do for you.

  • DC Cooper

    repeal and replace, oops never mind. repeal, oops never mind, now it’s let Obamacare die. While we put our foot on it’s throat. F-ck the people, let them die too.

    • intimeforthedime

      hahahahaaa, now that was funny…

  • Nosmo King

    Hope the RINO croaks

  • 808Americans

    Wonder if he is using Robert’s-Care?

  • 330capt

    Ya can’t vote with a sore eye?
    This was a blatant effort (apparently a successful one) for McCain & McConnell to NOT give us health care freedom and choices. Old school “swamp” politics at it’s finest. McCain rode his father’s and grandfather’s gold braids to power and has mis-used and abused it ever since. classic egomaniac with a clip-board and a staff of people to carry out his orders. Arizona, wake the hell up!!! Get rid of Flake NOW, and McCain later-should he live that long.

  • Opinionsgiven

    Nope it is over, even with RINO McCain they don’t have the votes! Good – get Government out of healthcare; let them make laws and protect the USA like they should.

    • DC Cooper

      the repeal failed today, lol.

  • Just Saying-2

    This is fake news. McTurtle doesn’t have the votes with or without him.

  • andrew moore

    I didn’t know you could recover from being an idiot…..

  • REM

    Wow it’s one thing after another with these obstructionist Republicans in Congress as they mark their calendar everyday until they see Trump gone. They’re losers and hence the name Washington Generals.

  • Perro Viejo

    He’s no Republican either. He’s so moderate his chair should be IN the aisle!

  • Al Robins

    The irony is that this EXACTLY points to why Obama Care has failed and why the President has to overhaul the VA. If McCain does not support President Trump on this McCain is a HYPOCRITE and must GO! #Blacks4Trump

  • Jay

    like I said trump care is a dead duck, just like the Trump wall that Mexico will pay for, my ,my ,my

    • #9

      unfortunately, you are correct at least on the heath care issue. Dems + never Trump republicans = bleeding of America, not leading America. Sad, Sad, Sad. Very disappointed. It doesn’t matter what the people want it’s still business as usual in Washington. I will never regret my vote for President Trump, I do regret not knowing how unsupportive this government is of the people who put them in there. They might as well join the Democratic Party. They would at least be more honest, anyway.

  • Tado

    If McCain dies, BCRA dies.
    ACA lives !!!

  • DC Cooper

    say bye bye to repealing Obamacare, lol. Tonight you struck out…

  • Jed55

    Am I the only one that thinks McCain did this on purpose? McCain doesn’t want President Trump to succeed at anything, he’s a bitter, jealous old loser. I hope someone catches on to this in Washington & does some investigating. McCain is poison & needs to go away.

  • Barbara Lynch

    He should have been voted out a long time ago. He is nothing but a BS artist.

  • intimeforthedime

    “He will spend the week recovering at his home in Arizona per doctor’s orders.”
    WTF does his home have to do with it? He is a rich piece of Shyte senator who can set up a home anywhere!!!
    Last week this old ace was complaining that there were millions of people suffering and will suffer if we don’t do it right. Which is why he is being a pain in the ace for us right now. Now he wants to sit on his ace at home to recover? The home is where the heart is you old Bass turd.
    He is ONLY wasting time. Next week he will be back to work and then someone else is going to need to get up and go to the bathroom before the vote. Each week is a new “thing” to waste time. NONE OF THOSE PIECES OF SHYTE WANT TO PASS THIS CHANGE!!!!

    IT IS A DANG SCAM!!!!!!!

  • grinnie

    Gee, I hope the VA or OCare takes good care of him….oops, forgot, he isn’t ‘required’ to have either coverage…..too bad.

  • ashcoal

    He’s trying to get a sick note so he won’t have to see Dr.Mueller.

  • Biform25

    It’s beyond obvious that he is not fit to serve.
    He needs to be removed from office.

  • Mark P

    So we have to wait til he’s healthy??

  • Kenneth Slayor

    If they aren’t willing to limit themselves to the same care they provide everyone else then they do not represent me.

  • SR 71

    This ESTABLISHMENT RINO will do anything to stop the agenda of Pres. TRUMP n the American People. I wonder how much Soro’s is paying this POgarbage to play this game? McSlime is a Traitor to this Country and not a War Hero he likes to tell everybody. His Naval career was a joke.

  • No Mas

    Please show me the exact healthcare coverage McCAIN has in the Senate. I want to know exactly what they get and how much they pay, premiums, co-pays, max out of pocket, etc.!!!!
    THIS IS WHAT AMERICANS SHOULD INSIST ON BEFORE ANYTHING IS AGREED TO ON HEALTHCARE.
    Our representatives should NOT receive any benefit > than those of the middle class Americans can acquire!

    • andrew moore

      There has been a bill introduced into congress to show exactly that. I forget which senator introduced it but I think it was one from either texas or florida.

      • betterboy

        It is a publicity stunt – it will never pass and they know it.

        • andrew moore

          Of course it won’t pass….That is what happens when the foxes are in charge of the hen houses.

        • andrew moore

          But what it does do is when it comes up for a vote it shows us Americans who is and who is not the traitors of the people….We should be watching things like this very very closely so we know how to vote in the next election cycle.

    • betterboy

      That $275k does not include all the free shiit from the lobbyists and the deep state.

      • No Mas

        Is that how Maxine Waters has her 4.3 million estate

  • turnipweed

    FAKE Republican, bless his heart.

    • betterboy

      There is no heart. He did squat for his fellow veterans. This McCain turd is against Trump and Trump is the only one who has pushed a benefits bill through for the VA.

  • Get Off the Pot

    If it was a vote to raise their salary, McCain would send his vote in by carrier pigeon!

  • Bobby Green

    It must be really, really hard for McCain to get out of bed go down to congress and say yea and go back to the saloon. Poor baby. Let the health care thing just go away and let the democrats own it in the 2018 votes. So when people die at home because they can’t afford to pay the ever increasing deductibles, Schumer and his scummy bodies can explain that to their constituents.

    • No Mas

      The problem is, Republicans own what it does now, and doing nothing is not going to give them any positive energy. At least a full repeal is the first half of the promise!!!!

  • grandmother5

    This is a sign he should retire. He’s how old? 81 or 82. Could this have been the cause of his mumble, jumble words when asking questions? Terms limits or age limits should be in place for politicians. What healthcare does he have? Mayo Clinic, wow!

    • turnipweed

      FAKE Republican McCain seems young compared to Leahy.

      • grandmother5

        turnipweed if you mean HRC, you are right.

  • newsflash

    A call to all republicans and conservatives! VOTE OUT EVERY INCUMBENT REPUBLICAN SENATOR! IT IS TIME TO GET THESE OLD CODGERS AND RINOS OUT. GOP BE WARNED.

    • intimeforthedime

      100% on top of that!

    • betterboy

      Yes but, we need Trump to get the word out that the public wants new candidates from outside the political corrupt pool that have integrity. We need others to vote in that will be different and not corrupt.

  • andrew moore

    McCain had a very delicate operation…it was called a Glassectomy….That is a procedure where they install a glass pane in your abdomen so that while his head is up his azzss he can still see where he walking.

  • andrew moore

    mccain is sick? Bet he isn’t relying on obummer care to get better….I bet his insurance is much much better than that that he wants his people to have.

    • turnipweed

      The best is the free market. When I heard Trump say “We will repeal… and replace, 0bamacare” I said “here we go again”. C’mon Trump, we don’t want the government up our butts.

  • Travis Shaffar

    Bet his hospital visit was covered with a much lower deductible than mine was, but he can can go on holding out on voting on replacing this abomination of health insurance….

  • andrew moore

    old tokyo rose mccain will never recover from his stupidity…..There is no cure of the stupid.

  • a voice of concern

    Not many people make an entire career based on being a POW. Sort of insulting to other POW’s

    • Mike Smith

      He has also spent his entire career lying and hiding that other POWs were left behind. He could have done something to help them but is too afraid they might contradict his “war hero” image and tell what he was really doing over there. So he has let how many other POWs suffer over there all these years? He is as vile as it gets.

      • Bill Jr

        Hey Mike Were You In The Navy and From Northern California?

    • betterboy

      He is a phony. What McCain has done is as bad as a civilian claiming he was a war hero – actually worse because McCain sold out his country – I just listened to the Tokyo Rose type recording from his capture – disgusting. He should be court marshaled.

      • Bill Jr

        Have You Ever Been a ‘Guest’ of The Hanoi Hilton? Not What I’d Call Fun, Unless You Were With Jane Fonda on her North Vietnam Varsity Cheerleader Team.

  • Scott

    Is McCain on Obamacare?

    • grandmother5

      Scott, heavens no. Only the best healthcare for our politicians.

      • betterboy

        True! The guy who works 60 hours a week for a $55k salary has to spend $900/month for ins. that pays only after a massive deductible. The congress only get $275k / year, so they can’t afford the $900/month – after all, they are soooo important!

        • grandmother5

          Exactly! I was lucky that the company I worked for paid my health insurance. I was forced to retire in 2009 because of the oil downturn. The last insurance I had was really strange. The employees insurance was paid for, the dependent coverage was strange. If you had one dependent it was X dollars, if you had five dependents it was the same as the cost for one. To me that’s not right. I think the politicians should have the same health care insurance as the taxpayer. Another thing the politicians “work” for us, we hired them by our votes.

  • ReevaDiva

    McCain did this on purpose, not that he didn’t need the surgery, but he could have had the surgery earlier or later. The other cowards are now using it as an excuse to hold off as if they give a S*** about his health!!!!!! This is exactly why I voted for Trump. The career Politicians serve themselves. The Democrats are acting as if they should be allowed at the table when they obviously could care less what anybody thought when they pushed their agenda through with out republican input or consent! so they can sit on a wire brush as far as I’m concerned. GET THIS DONE ALREADY!

  • Bill Jr

    Healthcare Vote Delayed As McCain Recovers From Daggers Thrown At him On Senate Floor By Both Sides. One Member Said We Were Practicing ‘Leeching’ To Release The Demons That Have Been Plaguing For Some Time. If This Doesn’t Work Well Bring In a Witch Doctor From India, his Elephant Will Let The Air Out of his Tirades.

  • SR 71

    Why delay.? This DimoCrap will vote against the Bill as all ESTABLISHMENT RINOS

  • Thomas

    I met McCain when I was TAD at VA-42 Framp (a training squadron for A6 Intruders @ NAS Oceana), he was a jackass then and from all appearances is sill a jackass.

    • Warpaint

      Thank you for your service Sir! Wasn’t he an f4 jock?

      • Thomas

        It was my privilege, thank you (and all taxpayers) for paying me to learn, travel and have fun. I thought he was, but for some reason he was at VA-42. Perhaps it had something to do with SecNav Lehman using VA-42 for his flight hours, or perhaps the Phantom aviators got tired of his jackass attitude.

        • Warpaint

          The A6 is a great airframe, not as fast as the Phantom. Its ECM role was outstanding

          • Thomas

            Yep, the EA-6B Prowler (we called it the Queer Jet) was phenomenal in regards to ECM, but the A6 Intruder “The Spearhead of the Attack” could deliver a nice load of ordnance. The phantom could fly circles around it. A bit of research and I found out that an started out with the A 4E Skyhawk, not sure why I thought he once flew the F4, perhaps the incident on the USS ForestFire

          • Warpaint

            So he and Duke Cunningham pushed intruders?

          • RMCS Ret.

            Uh Uh … Cunningham was in F4’s (Fighters), McCain in A4’s (attack, bombers sort of).

          • Warpaint

            My father was a tin can sailor!
            I thought I had read somewhere mccain was dukes wingman, guess I am wrong

        • RMCS Ret.

          A4 not F4. Probably why he was at VA-42. More than likely transitioning to the A6. I did 3 years on Comnavairpac staff, and followed that with 10 as a civilian there so got to hear a lot of stuff about him.

      • Sonny Shaw

        McCain flew A-4 Sky Hawk I believe..when he was shot down over Vietnam…

        • Warpaint

          Man The A4 had a long service life.

        He was a “what the f4” jerk who crashed every plane he ever flew.

    The funny thing is they keep saying eye surgery but this morning they were saying his recovery would take longer because they had to cut his skull to get to it. I think it’s brain surgery but they don’t want to call attention to his incompetence.

  • jerseycat406

    to bad he “recovered”

    • Ronald D. Stevens Sr

      well, if he didn’t, we would have had to shut the government for at least a year and find some other A hole to replace him. We are the government, the people, why aren’t we asked who is voted in, right? I vote, you guessed it, what’s that transgender’s name? God help us all.

  • William Glass

    2018 : Vote the Dems and RINOs OUT!!!

    • Butthep

      Sure.

  • What? The entire system comes to a standstill because one person is missing? What a joke and lie to essentially bide their time. Personally, I don’t want the government telling me what to do with my body. Something has to be sacred.

    • betterboy

      Why don’t you tell us what you’ve been doing with your body!

  • River

    Who cares? They all get excellent care on our dime yet cannot Repeal the ACA for the rest of us!

    GET THE GOVERNMENT OUT ACT!
    Let my 81yr old mother decide for herself if she needs pre-natal care and abortion coverage. Jessssh!

    • betterboy

      The criminal politicians passed regulations the benefited the ins companies at the public’s expense – both parties were paid by lobbyists of the ins. companies. I hate health ins. companies for that reason. The ACA shafted everyone except for lowly brain dead dem voters who keep getting benefits at the expense of those who work – keep the dem voters voting dem no matter how badly government corruption expands. The RINOs still taking money from the health ins companies. Trump needs to get rid of Obozocare because it is a disaster, so he has to support the Ryan version, but it sucks also. I tried to read it and I can’t understand that one either.

      First, build urgent care centers next to emergency rooms staffed by nurse practitioners. All those going to emergency must go through the urgent care first and then to emergency if they truly need emergency care. That will reduce cost immensely. There should be a basic level of care for everyone and then access to higher levels if you pay for private ins.

      The government needs to do this –
      Create plans that all ins companies must insure. Don’t allow the ins companies to create their own plans because they all differ and you can’t compare. The medicare supplemental ins is setup like this – Plan F is the same coverage for everyone if you select that plan. Then you simply shop price. They all have to deliver the exact same coverage under plan F, so if Blue cross costs $150/mo and Humana costs $160/ month you just sign up with Blue Cross because you get the exact same coverage at a lower cost. This is an absolute must to have honest competition among companies. Before, each company purposely had a plan that was different. Since each plan was complex we could not compare and/or figure out what the best deal was. Please copy and paste everywhere because only those of us with medicare supplemental ins know there is a system that works perfectly already in place that is simple and just needs to be edited and copied. The 2500 pages of Obozocare can be replaced with 12 pages readable by everyone. With nation wide competition, the insurance companies will be forced to compete and lower costs.
      Money given to Medical by the fed gov should be based on regulations that the state reduce costs of medical care and not be connected to the plan above.

        The federal government must be forced out of health care and out of health insurance. You do know that the insurance companies wrote NobamaCare AND they have written RINOCare as well?

      The point is to force your 81-year-old mother, and millions like her, to pay for the abortions, pre-natal care, birth control, etc. of the welfare trash.

    I live in AZ, and that guy is nothing more than a career politician who will say and do anything he thinks will further his chances of re-election. Sticks his finger up in the air to gauge which way the wind is blowing. RINO…

    • RMCS Ret.

      The guy isn’t, and never was, a “war hero.” He’s a spoiled brat that made his Naval career living off the exploits of his father and grand father. His dad bailed him out of untold number of scrapes. I guess that’s what dad’s do, but it doesn’t make John III any less of a dirt bag. Folks need to spend some time talking with folks that served with him, in and out of Vietnam prison camps, and they’ll get an earful.

        I’ve heard some pretty interesting stories about this dude from guys who knew him on active duty – pretty much as you describe.

        • Cesar Figueroa

          hasn’t changed, he is the picture perfect image of what is wrong with American politics.
          I pray for his Soul, because he has caused more deaths and destruction on the planet than most dictators.

      • andrew moore

        His Tokyo rose propaganda recording he made when he was captured is now out there on Google…..I guess they found it in the archives.

      • Nosmo King

        Yep. And it was his arrogance and stupidity that killed all those sailors in a fire on the Forrestal

      • NNC9

        I have no doubt you and many others are correct. I can’t stand the RINO but please, can’t people be more specific?

      • Jim Ruddy

        Let’s strap your cowardly fanny to a flying bomb and see how tough you really are!! My guess is that you would pee your blue pants ya coward!! The number of years in a POW camp is more then you could EVER endure!! You are a closet coward!!

      • Tado

        Admiral Father Awards POW son.
        What does that say?
        Brain Tumor!

      • B Bradley

        I agree. If he is such a hero, why are his military records still sealed after all these years? He’s a scumbag

      • Cesar Figueroa

        Daddy Soros you mean,

    • Teresa Ranieri Wagner

      I agree! He’s a traitor to his own party! Can’t believe he was re-elected! Old geezer needs to resign. Glad I didn’t vote for him.

      • camaross

        He made me vote for the Dem in his last election…it was in protest, but I still feel unwashed.

      • Herman

        He is a traitor to our country, let alone the GOP!

      • Sharon Washam

        he was re-elected because the opposition was worse choice than him. Need a strong Republican to step up to the plate and retire Mr. McCain.

        • constitutiononly

          Arizona voters seem to be very odd. I have a couple of friends in Arizona who are strong constitutional conservatives, and they are not alone; and yet that state elects RINOs and Leftists. They had sheriff Joe, and yet the place is full of screeching Mexican illegals. Puzzling.

    • Ray Wright

      Thanks for the chuckle. You’re spot on about McCain.

    • limapie

      maybe now that he is thinking of his own mortal future, he’ll change

      • sl

        Doubt it….think he is a raging sociopath.

    • Jim Ruddy

      Just read an article that says he has the same cancer as Ted the moron had and that may explain a lot from this old moron!!

    • Tado

      Brain Tumor.
      That’s a Career Disease.

    • Cesar Figueroa

      it’s not in the air where he sticks his finger.
      as you can see he gets the best medical care possible, they even go overboard to save a an old traitor, just imagine if he and the rest of congress had to live with the Laws they passed. he should be on Medicaid and waiting for an appointment and receive Generic medications, or placebos.
      this country is lost if we don’t change our ways.

    The bad news is “McCain recovers”.
