Hollywood celebrities are expressing their gratitude to Senator John McCain for his recent killing of yet another Obamacare repeal bill. One such celebrity is Jimmy Kimmel, who attacked the bill during his show earlier this week.
"Thank you, John McCain, for being a hero again and again and now AGAIN!"
Rosie O'Donnell also expressed her gratitude: "First things first, you are the realest. Thank u SENATOR for all you have given to this great nation."
The last notable setback to the Republican Obamacare repeal effort came in July of this year. In the dark morning hours of July 28, Senator John McCain, still recovering from surgery, made his way into the Senate Chamber. He raised up his hand and put his thumb downward, signaling that he was a "no" vote on a skinny repeal of Obamacare.
This outraged conservatives of all stripes. Those who wanted to end federal funding to abortion and Planned Parenthood were furious, and fiscal conservatives who wanted to repeal Obamacare were shocked.
Now, John McCain is doing it again. He is taking another bold step against Obamacare repeal. On Friday, Senator McCain announced that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal Obamacare. This announcement might potentially doom the legislation since the vote is expected to be very close, especially with a couple Tea Party Senators like Rand Paul voting 'no' on the bill, which they consider to be "Obamacare Lite."
“I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said according to The Hill.
