Senator John McCain has, again, weighed in to stop the repeal of Obamacare, this time citing procedural issues with how the bill is coming to the Senate floor. Senator McCain, (R) Arizona, said, in part:
“As I have repeatedly stressed, health care reform legislation ought to be the product of regular order in the Senate. Committees of jurisdiction should mark up legislation with input from all committee members, and send their bill to the floor for debate and amendment. That is the only way we might achieve bipartisan consensus on lasting reform, without which a policy that affects one-fifth of our economy and every single American family will be subject to reversal with every change of administration and congressional majority.”
The original health care bill was passed exclusively on partisan lines and was famously presented only hours before the vote, with Democrat Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi saying, “we have to pass the bill” before we could see what was in it. But Senator McCain’s desire for “bipartisan reform” could not be achieved unless Republicans agreed to simply bolster Obamacare, after having campaigned for 7 years on repealing the partisan health care plan.
Senator McCain joins Senator Rand Paul, (R) Tennessee, who opposes the bill on the grounds that it is a “fake repeal.” With the two Senators now in opposition, the actual passage of this bill, using a procedure that allows for only 51 votes, with the Vice President as the tie-breaker, is in severe doubt.
The outstanding question remains as to McCain’s true motives here, despite his comments and public statement. It would be obvious that Democrats would never join in any repeal and that to follow the procedures he prescribes would run out the clock on the ability to pass the bill with only 51 votes.
At this point, observers note, the GOP is unwilling or unable to deliver on any single one of its campaign promises. While Senator Rand Paul is arguing that this is a fake repeal, Senator McCain is going further away from repeal when he makes the issue procedural and demands more “partisanship” which could only be won the expense of abandoning repeal altogether.
Initial social media responses from conservatives were, predictably, quite hostile to the Senator. On the left, his stance was hailed as principled and noble.

Nikki Haley Announces Super PAC to Support Anti-Trump Incumbents with Big Corporate Money
Haley is dangerous to MAGA.
Former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is leading the charge to protect anti-Trump incumbent legislators in the 2022 midterm elections.
Haley announced in an email that she will be expanding her Stand for America campaign into a Super PAC in order to dump money to help RINOs obtain re-election next year.
“I am not done, not by a long shot,” Haley wrote about her efforts to subvert President Trump’s America First agenda. “Because you and I know it is crucial to stand for what you believe in.”
She describes her new Stand for America PAC as an entity that will be a “political action committee laser-focused on the 2022 midterms.” Haley’s organization will be “defending GOP incumbents who are being targeted for defeat.” She uses reviled Democrats as a smokescreen to hide her true anti-Trump intentions.
“You can be sure the Democrats won’t abandon their big-government vision in 2022, including “defund the police,” the Green New Deal, and Medicare for All. They are simply “rebranding” – which is just an attempt to hide the truth about what they really believe from voters,” she wrote.
“Now, there is nothing standing in the way of the Biden-Harris agenda – which is the furthest left the Democrat Party has gone in history,” Haley added.
However, it is clear with Haley’s words and actions over the past week that her political ambitions are centered around nullifying President Trump’s legacy.
Big League Politics reported on Haley’s craven betrayal of President Trump at the moment in which she felt it would benefit her ambitions after disingenuously feigning support of the president for years:
Former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley described President Trump’s performance as “very disappointing” after the November election concluded. She added that Trump will be “judged harshly by history.”
However, the New York Post reported that Haley “softened” her comments at the Republican National Committee by noting that Trump made some “truly extraordinary gains” while in the White House.
“President Trump has not always chosen the right words,” Haley commented, according to Fox News.
“He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time,” she declared. “He was badly wrong with his words yesterday,” when Trump supporters protested at the US Capitol.
“And it wasn’t just his words,” Haley commented. “His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.”
… Haley described the surge into the Capitol as “un-American,” and believes that it should be disavowed “in the strongest terms.”“If we are the party of personal responsibility, we need to take personal responsibility,” she said to the RNC audience. “We can and should talk about our major differences.”
“But we must stop turning the American people against each other,” she commented. “And this Republican Party must lead the way.”
Nikki Haley is the consummate establishment politician who wants to revert back to respectability politics aka politics where defense contractors get paid, the border remains porous, corporations wield unaccountable power, and the surveillance state grows.
One good byproduct from last week’s mayhem is that frauds like Haley can no longer masquerade as being in line with the MAGA agenda. Tens of millions of Trump supporters see her for what she is now.
