Regular Rules of Order???

John McCain is a US Senator who says he voted against the “Skinny” Obamacare repeal bill because he believes the Senate must act according to its regular rules of order. His vote against the bill doomed it to failure. But Republicans have a 52-48 majority in the Senate and if they had voted “en block” as the Democrats are wont to do under the slimy Sen. Schemer (intentionally misspelled), the bill would have passed.

But we are not living under “regular rules of order” and emergency measures are called for. With all due respect to the war-hero, ex-POW, who we are told has brain-cancer, those of us who like him have borne the burdens of war must ask: “What in the world is going on and who in heck is in charge?”

I’ll tell you what I would do, folks, and that is expel the RINOs from the Senate “Leadership” Conference and deny them any part of Republican Senatorial Campaign Funds. If they want to vote with the Democrats, let them suffer the ignominy of having to change their party affiliation by registering as Democrats.

  1. What is needed is reality. Throw away the veneer of “Constitutionism” and human civilty and respect. God’ s Dignity and Law is Higher. John McCain had intelligence issues way before he had brain problems.

    “Dead duck” (i.e., former) Democratic senators lobbying now “lame duck” Sen. McCain!

    Joe Biden Reportedly Called John McCain Ahead Of Crucial Obamacare Repeal Vote

    McCain has the same kind of brain cancer that Biden’s son Beau died of in 2015.

    Former Vice President/Sen. Joe Biden personally lobbied Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) before the senator cast a crucial vote taking down a Republican attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, according to The Washington Post.

    The call between the two was emotional, according to the Post. McCain was recently diagnosed with the same kind of brain cancer that Biden’s son Beau died of in 2015. Joe Biden served in the Senate from 1972 until 2008, while McCain has been a senator since 1987.

    Former Sen. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.), a close friend of McCain, also lobbied him to oppose the bill, according to the Post.
