Trey Gowdy’s Stunning Remarks On McCain’s Betrayal Need To Be Heard By EVERY AMERICAN
The Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare have failed, and conservatives all across the country are infuriated by the process. John McCain enjoyed stabbing conservatives in the back with the final vote against the “skinny” bill and ruined the Republican dream. One of our favorite senators, Trey Gowdy, perfectly described the situation with his remarks on the process.
Gowdy is the real voice of conservatives in the USA who felt betrayed by the actions of their representatives. The “skinny” repeal option was to eliminate Obamacare individual as well as the medical device tax, which was a far cry from what McCain and other Republicans promised in their campaign.
Here’s a report from the Daily Caller:
“House Oversight Chairman Trey Gowdy is irritated with the Republican Party for having seven years to come up with a health care plan but only managing to think of a “skinny” repeal.
“Our problem is for seven years telling people what we’re against and what we’re opposed to and then we’ve had seven months to govern, and the best we can come up with is a skinny plan on 24 hours’ notice?” Gowdyasked during a Fox News interview. “We’ve had seven years to figure it out and the best we can come up with is something called ‘skinny,’” he continued. After being asked about the next steps, Gowdy answered that Republicans must go back to the drawing table and try again. “It’s not going to be done with 24 hours’ notice and a bill that has the word ‘skinny’ in it,” he stated.
One of the main reasons why Republicans scaled back was definitely John McCain. In 2015, McCain voted for the Obamacare repeal bill that was vetoed by former president Barack Obama. This was actually a test vote for what the GOP could pass if they won the White House in 2016. That year, John McCain promised to repeal Obamacare during his campaign, but as many times before, he lied to everyone. This led to the GOP scrambling for something that could bypass the Senate and keep the hopes of a full repeal alive during a meeting with the House which was supposed to hash out the final legislation.
This is exactly the reason why Rand Paul and Mike Lee voted for the “skinny” repeal option, but McCain wanted to keep Obamacare alive. He lied to everyone in America and backstabbed the president when he voted “no”. Trey Gowdy is right – the Republicans need to try again, but this time without the “skinny” option.
