Yeah, but he DID vote that. He has to own up to his cock sucking of the corporations and the wealthiest 1%.“Dumbest vote I ever made in Congress,” he (McCain) said.
He has been part of the problem and not the solution.
We're going to see a lot of these republicans lamenting publicly their past sins and trying to act human. Hopefully no one will fall for this compassionate facade. It's all a ruse for them to keep their seats.
Remember when they ran on jobs jobs jobs? They didn't even discuss a jobs bill. It really was all about abortion and voter suppression.
Don't fall for their lies. They want to remain in power for corporate profits and the wealthy. Republicans don't give a rats ass about the middle class, the poor or minorities. They're only for the wealthy, white Christian males and keeping them rich.
Lost all respect for McCain after 2000 how he kissed up to Bush. 2008 he picks Sarah Palin calling her the most qualified candidate for vice president. In addition McCain is GOLD MEDAL winner for GOP FLIP FLOPPING.
I used to like McCain years ago, but he burned every last bridge with me over the last decade.
The best thing he can do for that poor woman is give her $100 in disability money back so she can go to physical therapy. Millions of Americans are suffering, and all they need is $100 or $200 just to survive and get by. But somehow they are the "takers" when the wealthiest insure hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax cuts and credits for their personal income or corporate profits.

The thing is: this woman is a taker since she's probably getting out more than she put in and that's totally fine with me. I want that social safety net in case something happens to me or a loved one. My issue is with these corporations and very wealthy people using tax loopholes to lower their taxes. These companies and people are the real takers.
My problem is with people like my governor that kick low-income families off the state's healthcare system to balance the budget and then, last month, used Democratic state senators to put seniors back on the government dole (the governor's peers I might add) while leaving off families and children in poverty. If I was a state senator I would have voted against extending medicare coverage to seniors unless it included coverage for low-income families. One constituency isn't more deserving than another. Plus, I'd rather invest in the future by giving these poor children's families food stamps and access to doctors for check ups.
