Donald Trump blames John McCain's vote for Trumpcare bill's death

Trump, who waves the flag while he offers excuses after having been the favored candidate of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin when Russia attacked our elections, should thank McCain for devoting a career to preserving and protecting our freedom in military and public life. "Who have they become that they would boo a man who is fighting for his very life, and has served the country?"

"I was raised in the concept and belief that duty, honor, country is the lodestar for the behavior that we have to exhibit every single day", he said. However, the senator sunk the so-called "skinny repeal" last month and planned to vote against the Graham-Cassidy bill this week.

The Graham-Cassidy bill would take the funds used for subsidies and the expansion of Medicaid under Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and transfer them to states in block grants, phasing out the funds completely by 2027. I recently wrote here that this bill is so bad that Sen.

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said during an interview on Fox News that Sen.

The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, which analyzes legislation, has not had time to assess the Graham-Cassidy bill before the expected vote.

Trump also claimed Republicans are scared to actually pass a repeal bill now that they have a Republican president that will sign it, saying GOP members now just "pander" and "grandstand".

Along with Paul, Cruz and Lee have sought changes to GOP bills all year long that would reduce federal health care funding beyond other Republican proposals.

As of Monday night, three senators - including McCain - had voiced opposition to the pending legislation, all but ensuring its defeat.

Instead of uniting the nation while America faces a serious threat from North Korea and instead of summoning all of his energy to come to the rescue of hurricane-ravaged Puerto Rico, Trump attacks the patriotism of black athletes and posts juvenile tweets attacking McCain.

He didn't expect Alabama voters to display the exemplary character of the senator they insulted, but he asked them to have enough respect for themselves to show respect for a war hero.

Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders was also one of the senators who blasted the Republican approach.

"For those of you booing John McCain right now and are too ignorant to read a book, John McCain said, 'No, I'm not going to go home until all my men go home with me, '" said Scarborough.

McCain's close friend in the Senate, South Carolina Sen.

Lincoln, Washington - and Ronald Reagan as well - would honor the dignity and spirit of public service that McCain brings to American politics and the U.S. Senate. John McCain, distributing a video that showed the Arizona Republican on board with the mission in the past.
