John McCain Kills ‘Skinny’ Obamacare Repeal As Implosion Looms

Chuck Schumer and John McCain shared fist pumps of victory after the ‘Skinny’ repeal of Obamacare narrowly failed with a vote of 49-51. McCain – the maverick who heroically flew back to Washington D.C. after immediately recovering from brain cancer surgery, teamed up with Republicans Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski to join Democrats in opposing the latest attempt to triage the actively imploding Obamacare debacle.

Collins voted no first, then Murkowski, followed by McCain, who came to the well of the Senate and gave a thumbs down, dooming the repeal bill to loud gasps, mostly from the Democratic side of the aisle. Republican leaders stood together looking grim as their back-up repeal plan appeared to collapse. –Bloomberg

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell described the bill’s failure as a “disappointing moment,” while top Democrat Chuck Schumer said he and the rest of the his party were relieved that millions of people would get to keep their healthcare.

President Trump weighed in, reminding people of the impending implosion of the illegally propped-up Obamacare scheme.

Mitch McConnell’s ‘stripped down’ compromise sought to strike a balance between a total repeal of Obamacare sought by conservatives, and concerns by liberals over a projected 16 million Americans who would lose their health insurance or see premiums rise 20% by 2026.

McConnell miffed

Mitch McConnell gave a sullen concession speech – tossing the ball in the Democrats’ court, and adding that a public bailout of insurance companies wasn’t a tenable solution:

Now, I imagine many of our colleagues on the other side are celebrating. Probably pretty happy about all this. But the American people are hurting and they need relief. Our friends on the other side decided early on they didn’t want to engage with us, in a serious way, to help those suffering under Obamacare. 

So now I think it’s appropriate to ask, what are their ideas? 

Bailing out insurance companies with no thought of any kind of reform is not something I want to be a part of. 

Schumer gloats

After going only so far as to say Obamacare ‘needs improvement,’ Chuck Schumer – who suppressed a laugh as he gave a nod to John McCain and Orrin Hatch (who shared a moment after the vote), and suggested that the bill could be passed if certain conditions are met.

Just RINO stuff… 

What’s Trump’s healthcare endgame?

At the end of March, Trump let people know what he was going to do when Obamacare inevitably implodes; a total reboot.

Last but not least on this rollercoaster of a charade – Senator Tom Scott was the victim a vicious notebook attack by the violent media:

Get the popcorn, the swamp just claimed a win in what’s going to be a long and interesting cleanup when Obamacare implodes.

    Watch for a McCain replacement to be announced by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey in the very near future – perhaps during the recess.

    “ObamaCare will explode and we will all get together and piece together a great healthcare plan for THE PEOPLE. Do not worry!”

    Classic high-ground manoeuvre. As crazy as the Executive Branch has been this week, the Senate has been even crazier. Trump will come out on top. Do not worry!

    McCain just served ice-cold “I like heroes that aren’t captured” revenge to draft dodger Trump.

    I would love to know, how will it implode? What is the catalyst? Remember the health care industry is a large part of the economy. This industry continues to hire for well paying professional jobs. I have not seen any true market reforms. They should take each piece of the AHC and vote on each line item. The name of the game is chaos. Neither party wants to fix this problem nor do they know how.

    Flounder , it implodes because they have a guarantee from the government to pay the bill.

    They can’t lose money, unless the government can’t back them.

    Hence why trump will win. He is not going to back them.

    Regards

    TC McCain’s diagnosis will make him much more prone to clots and stokes, and will impair his mental capacity. He will be undergoing treatments that include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

    Arizona law specifically requires that the Governor replace a Senator should they ‘retire’ on ill health grounds. The Governor Ducey (R) must replace with someone of the same party, he could even appoint himself to the position.

    Personally, my view is that Trump does not care about the outcome. He wants to let the House and Senate just punch each out until the system implodes and they get the blame for it – especially the Democrats.

    He is illustrating how duplicitous they all are, right in front of the American people.

    Every time I see McCain it brings back memories of Douglas C. Neidermeyer of National Lampoon’s Animal House. Reports are that he managed to screw up just about everything he’s touched.

    Apparently Obama exempted the house and the senate from Obamacare by calling them a
    business something they are clearly not. If am Trump I rescind that and force them all on Obamacare. Problem solved in 60 days.
    Republican are no better than the dems. For six years they have rightfully railed against Obamacare and when given the opportunity to do something they accomplish nothing. Portman, McCain and even Rand Paul are a bunch of hypocrites who deserve to be drummed out of power.

    It’s an open secret it’s that cancerous zionist filth Soros who controls McCain. “John McCain founded a non-profit institute called The Reform Institute. Where does it get its money? The donors list includes George Soros’ Open Society Institute and The Tides Foundation among others.”

    Nationalize healthcare, price controls for pharma and healthcare. If not then let it be truly free market and let healthcare and pharma charge whatever the market will demand at that very moment (Shkreli got this).

    Is it possible for the president to issue an executive order forcing congress to have obamacare as their own healthcare plan?

    I think Trump should default on payments to insurance companies and then make them register as nonprofits.
