John McCain Just Betrayed America For The Last Time As Trump Makes His Move

John McCain is a traitor to the American people and always has been. The Senator from Arizona has allowed his personal feelings to get in the way of his work and the American people are now suffering from his decisions. John McCain has failed his state and the entire country with his recent decision to vote against the repeal of Obamacare all because of his hate for our President. The people of Arizona need to recognize John McCain for the traitor he is and vote him out of office.

Donald Trump has never been a man to shy away from controversy and he has never been afraid to call people out when they break their promises or betray him and the American people. After McCain decided to sell out America, President Trump took to Twitter much like he always does to verbally attack the Arizona Senator.

In a swath of tweets, Trump said McCain was a disappointment to his home state of Arizona and his longtime friend in the Senate, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who is one of the co-authors behind the so-called “Graham-Cassidy bill,” an amendment which would overhaul the Affordable Care Act and remove individual and employer mandates required by former President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law.

According to Western Journalism:

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to berate Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., for letting down Arizona voters by opposing the latest GOP effort to overhaul Obamacare.

McCain issued a statement Friday announcing that he could not, “in good conscience,” support the proposal known as the Graham-Cassidy bill, which was co-authored by Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., one of McCain’s closest allies in the Senate, and Senator Bill Cassidy, R-La.

“I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried,” McCain said.

“I take no pleasure in announcing my opposition. Far from it. The bill’s authors are my dear friends,” he added.

Trump asserted in one Saturday tweet that “John McCain never had any intention of voting for this Bill, which his Governor loves. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace. Let Arizona down!”

Citing statistics from the Department of Health and Human Services, Trump also tweeted that Arizona experienced a 116-percent increase in premiums under Obamacare in 2016.

Trump claimed in the tweet that McCain, who cast the deciding vote against the most recent Republican proposal to repeal Obamacare, was influenced by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D.-N.Y., who supposedly “sold” McCain “a bill of goods.”

The Graham-Cassidy bill seeks to overhaul the Affordable Care Act and remove the individual and employer mandates required under Obamacare.

In a statement released Thursday, the National Association of Medicaid directors criticized the legislation, claiming it would place an unmanageable financial burden on the states.

Trump addressed that complaint in a tweet, noting that “Large Block Grants to States is a good thing to do. Better control & management. Great for Arizona.”

Passage of the Graham-Cassidy bill is dependent upon support from at least 50 of the 52 Republicans in the Senate.

However, Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine, has said she is leaning toward voting no on the legislation.

Moreover, Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., has said he is not in favor of Graham-Cassidy because it does not fully repeal the Affordable Care Act.

In another Saturday tweet, Trump suggested that Paul might reconsider his position and vote for Graham-Cassidy “for the good of the party.”

If our leaders aren’t willing to fight to make this country better because of petty differences, then they are not fit for office. We deserve leaders who have our best interests at heart and Obamacare has been a disaster from the very start. It was one of Donald Trump’s major goals to repeal Obamacare, and if it doesn’t happen soon more people will suffer from the consequences.

John McCain is a traitor to the Republicans and most importantly the American people. We cannot sit by and allow this single man to destroy every chance we have to repeal Obamacare. Of course, McCain is dealing with a very serious illness and chances are he won’t be in office much longer, but until that time arrives people need to be calling his office non-stop to try to get through to the grumpy old Senator. Face it John McCain, you lost and your time is almost up. It’s time to do the right thing and get on board.
