The liberal establishment, with help from Hollywood, is showering turncoat Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) with praise after his stunning announcement that he would once again go directly against his own campaign promise and oppose the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill.
McCain made the announcement in a statement Friday, saying that he could not in "good conscience" vote for the repeal of a law that he ran against during his last campaign.
"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," McCain declared.
"Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it," his statement continued. "Without a full CBO score, which won't be available by the end of the month, we won't have reliable answers to any of those questions."
After the announcement the liberal media immediately went to work praising the senator, with multiple "news" outlets spending considerable time painting McCain as some sort of hero standing up to the forces of Trump when in reality he is nothing more than an establishment puppet working for the very same masters who control the mainstream press.
