Trump Just Attacked John McCain On Twitter For His ‘No’ Vote On Trumpcare

When John McCain gave the brave thumbs down to the last attempt at ripping health care away from millions of Americans, he made an urgent plea to his fellow Senators to return to the traditions of the venerable Congressional body to devise and debate a health care bill through bi-partisan negotiations and committee hearings.

Despite the efforts of a few brave colleagues to work with Democrats on a bill to shore up and revise the Affordable Care Act’s federal financing problems, Republican leadership has instead insisted on a last-ditch attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare with a bill that only benefits the party’s corporate donors and harms so many ordinary people that one has to wonder how they don’t realize that they seemingly trying to commit political suicide.

The horrifying reality is that the new Graham-Cassidy bill is again within a vote or two of being enacted. One has to credit Senator McCain for sticking to his principles since he announced yesterday that he could not “in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal.” With Senator Rand Paul also indicating that he will vote against the bill, albeit because it wasn’t draconian enough for his taste, that means the Republicans are just one defection away from another embarrassing defeat of their signature campaign promise.

Given Senator McCain’s previous statements on how he thought the process of enacting a new health care bill should unfold, it was not a particularly surprising decision on his part. For Donald Trump, however, McCain’s decision was tantamount to treason, a subject that the president is allegedly very familiar with.

As expected, the president took to Twitter to express his displeasure.

While it may be amusing to see Trump pretend as if he’s actually read the bill and understands the implications it will have on the cost and availability of health care for the average American citizen, the fact that every major medical organization, and the majority of the people whom it would affect, are solidly against a bill that would increase patient’s premiums and deductibles, remove protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and end Medicaid as we know it should be enough evidence that the President cares more about tax cuts for the wealthy than ensuring that every person in this country gets the medical care that they deserve.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, Trump’s subsequent tweets were even more horrifying in their implications.

If Trump’s suggestions that both Senators Paul and Murkowski could still agree to vote for the bill are true, you can start saying goodbye to Obamacare now. Anyone who doesn’t want to see that happen had better start calling Congressional offices right now to let feckless politicians know what will happen to their jobs if they let this heinous, heartless, politically cynical bill pass.
