Only in America can a sitting United States Senator undergo cancer treatment paid for by tax dollars, then fly to Washington, DC on a flight also paid for by tax dollars, just to vote to strip between 22 and 34 million of his fellow Americans human beings of their much needed health coverage. Coverage that they probably wouldn't have if not for ACA.
It's just stunning that a man who's hailed as a hero for not only serving his country, but for also enduring seven years as a POW would just so callously stab his countrymen in the back. For what reason? To secure an election that frankly he might not see because of his cancer? What happened to putting the needs of the nation first? He served it so ably in the past only to take a big stinking dump all over it in the name of politics.
With that said, I want to point out now that I'm not going to be one of those people I've seen that have been wishing for John McCain's demise because I just can't, no matter how much disrespect I have for him. Cancer has struck people on both sides of my family, so I know what McCain and his family is going through.
It's honestly just sad to see a man once widely respected by both sides piss away that adoration while pissing all over the people who need ACA in order to continue living.
