With John McCain’s “no” vote along with Rand Paul’s and Susan Collins’s, the chances of passing Graham-Cassidy are all but nil. They’d need to get every other Republican (and a few are still on the fence) plus a Democrat. Joe Manchin was the most likely candidate but has already expressed his disinterest in it. Unofficially, the GOP will finish their first year with control of the necessary branches of government without making a dent in Obamacare.
While I’ve been opposed to Graham-Cassidy, it’s bittersweet that the nail in the coffin comes from McCain. His reasons for saying “no” are ludicrous. He’s a Democrat now and wants to work with his fellow Democrats to pass an Obamacare bailout. Claiming that it needs to be done through “regular order” is just his way of saying he won’t support a Republican plan.
McCain’s statement calls “regular order,” meaning he wants to see the bill put through committee and debated on the floor, as well as a bipartisan effort to come to a decision. According to the release, McCain believes that major legislation like this should not be passed on a party-line basis.
Apparently McCain can’t vote for the bill without a CBO score and more of a bipartisan effort. Good grief, what about the merits of the bill itself???
The bill’s sponsors, Republican leadership, and the White House have been pressing hard to win the 50 votes needed. But with Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky repeatedly saying he would vote against it and Sen. Susan Collins of Maine saying Friday she was leaning against it, McCain’s no vote would kill the bill.
Don’t get caught unprepared as things go south. Order a case of five life-saving antibiotics prescribed directly to you by board certified physicians. Use promo code “RUCKER10” for $10 off. Having an emergency supply of antibiotics is crucial before the crap hits the fan.
Bill sponsors had exuded confidence in recent days, saying they were getting closer by the day to pinning down needed support, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced he planned to bring the bill to the floor.
There are three other Republican senators who have yet to declare their support for the bill. Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio, Shelley Moore Capito of West Virginia, and Cory Gardner of Colorado.
I was hoping it would be Rand Paul who put this bill down for conservative reasons. That would have sparked a look at why the bill fell short of the expectations of voters. Instead, McCain delivering the deathblow means the focus will be on bailing out Obamacare as the only way Republicans can get anything passed on healthcare.
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
