In a move that’s no surprise to anyone, John McCain voted against the embarrassingly named “Skinny Repeal”, voted against his party (or is it his party?) and voted to keep Obamacare going as is.
Smarter people than me say that there’s no way that this is over. I have asserted, from the beginning of Obamacare’s passage that it will never be repealed. We’ll see who’s right.
Here’s why this is a problem for Republicans: Republican voters believe Republicans are weak and pathetic. This vote proved them right. McConnell couldn’t get the necessary votes. John Spite-filled McCain pranced around like a Cheshire cat.
The best take on all this was by Ben Shapiro:
