Former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly thinks that McCain may have had less than noble intentions behind his decision to side with the Democrats when casting his vote.
According to O’Reilly, spite may have been the motivating factor for McCain.
“It was deeply surprising that Senator John McCain cast the deciding vote to kill health care reform. The branded “skinny bill” would have done away with some egregious parts of Obamacare like forcing individuals to buy health insurance under penalty of fine. McCain knew the final bill would have to be approved by the House which promised further additions. Then the new health care proposal would be kicked back to the Senate.” said O’Reilly, according to USA News Flash.
He also went on on how he thinks that McCain doesn’t trust Paul Ryan and how McCain didn’t want he bill to get to President Trump, without further tweaks. In other words, O’Reilly claimed that McCain wants much, much more than the current plan for the health care bill.
O’Reilly also commented on the fact that McCain let Obamacare live and because of this, the Democrats have scored a big win. However, as his final thought, O’Reilly said that McCain has let his country down.
Health care reform is now dead until the fall at least and while John McCain is pleading for both parties to work together on a new law, he surely knows the democrats will not agree to caps on Medicaid and any reduction on entitlements. So the merry-go-round will begin again.
I have known Senator McCain for decades and respect him. But on a bill that would have diminished the failure of Obamacare, he let his country down.
What do you think about this people? Can we agree with Bill O’Reilly?
