Watch on

McCain caught playing iPhone poker game during first congressional hearing about giving the president authority to use force in Syria.

Sen. McCain to Sen. Cruz today:

I’d remind my colleagues that in the 2012 election, Obamacare…was a subject that was a major issue in the campaign. Well, the people spoke.

They spoke, much to my dismay, but they spoke and they reelected the president of the United States.”

I can tell you that in the U.S. Senate, we will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not. And to think we can is not rational.
—  Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) told CNN that it was irrational to believe Republicans have any chance of repealing Obamacare by defunding it.

McCain caught playing poker on his phone while discussing sending Americans to war. Then laughs about it, “Discussing war for three hours is haaaaaaard. Can’t we just drink scotch and play poker and laugh while Americans die overseas?”

Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.

John McCain, Sept 2008 as presidential candidate calling for provisions in Obamacare he will later campaign against.

A Republican will say anything on any given day to get attention. They have zero consistency. McCain now talks shit about the very policy he promoted. This article mentions “personal responsibility”. I’m sure McCain now calls that personal responsibility ‘slavery’ or ‘government takeover of health care’ or some other Frank Luntz talking point. 

It’s not even an issue for republicans to be complete dicks in the Obama-era. Their base gives a free pass to any old white guy without question.
