Senator John McCain has recently recaptured his “Maverick” mojo since being diagnosed with brain cancer, and Mr. McCain has boldly voted against Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare urging Republicans to go back to “regular order” while working on national legislation.
This appears to be convincing proof that conservatives turn liberal when they’re facing the prospect of dying and facing judgement for the lives they have led. Better late than never, especially because Republicans rarely seem interested in empathizing with people’s problems. In Republican ideology, if you have a problem it’s either because you aren’t working enough jobs, you don’t believe in Jesus hard enough, or God is punishing you for some reason.
For political gain, Republicans are attempting to take away 30 million America’s healthcare under the guise of “freedom.” Freedom to die. Thankfully McCain has had a change of heart about Republican legislative chicanery, and is doing the right thing for the good of the country instead of pursuing stupidly partisan short-term gain. Maybe it’s to pad his Heaven-resume, but either way McCain is saving the day on the cruel Obamacare repeal effort.
Full disclosure, The Halfway Post has conducted several interviews with God, and it is painfully clear that the guy is liberal as hell. We reached out to God, but God declined an interview. He offered just one sentence relating to McCain and the repeal effort.
“I gave him the ol’ Ebenezer Scrooge treatment, if you know what I mean,” God said.
No matter how the decision to sink the repeal of Obamacare was inspired, thanks, Mr. McCain.
