    I told my father earlier this week that McCain was chomping at the bit to put it to Trump. I didn't know it would happen that soon, but I knew it would happen. I do think his primary reason for voting down the fraudulent skinny bill was because he thought it was the right thing to do for the country. However, there's little doubt he took a little added delight in sticking it to Trump.

    Extremely sad that Mccain choose personal vendatta type victory over the good of the country . he campaigned on exactly what he voted against , but he's a bitter, angry old man. He let personal politics stand in the way of progress . sad . Just very sad. Trump is getting played like a puppet to the detriment of our country . And his ego and twitter habits are embarrassing as well.

Now, all of Congress needs to come together and make the ACA better. There are some good elements and there are others that need improving. Can we put country ahead of partisanship and give all Americans affordable healthcare???

    McCain = Profile in Courage !!!! Country over Party.

    Absolutely, no reason why Members of Congress should not feel the pain of this countries health care system, without federal subsidies!

    McCain can afford his chemo. What about Bill in Nebraska when Trump cuts payments to the insurance companies and ends subsidies for regular Americans?

    Heck of a thing to root for.

    Sounding more like a third-world dictator with each passing day.

    But this is what we (you know what I mean when I say "we") got when we voted.

    I am taking turns being aghast at what I'm reading some of you post, and being amused.

    Perhaps Bill in Nebraska should have considered those consequences when he CHOSE not to pursue higher education and CHOSE not to pursue a trade skill and CHOSE a life of dependence upon government.

    Bleeding Heart Liberals all! How about taking personal responsibility for your decisions and owning the consequences instead of putting the responsibility for your failed personal choices on Government!

    And , Yes, MCcain should be paying for his own health care, not the taxpayers!

    If you want socialism that badly, try emigrating to Venezuela! I hear housing is real cheap and they have state health care there!
