Eric Cantor and John McCain show us everything that is morally worng with Cuckservatives. They grandstand, virtue signal and lie to get power and feel more moral than those that they defraud every time our demotic excuse for a republic holds another election.
This time, their surrender monkey routine consisted of rejecting the appeal of Obamacare that they swore up and down they would enact before the ACHA inevitably led to the socialization of Amerikan medicine. Cantor, now a charlatan at a boutique investment firm, tells us how the scam worked while Barack Obama was there to safely veto anything that was, you know, radical.
Asked if he feels partly responsible for their current predicament, Cantor is unequivocal. “Oh,” he says, “100 percent.” He goes further: “To give the impression that if Republicans were in control of the House and Senate, that we could do that when Obama was still in office…”
His voice trails off and he shakes his head. “I never believed it.” He says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.”
Cantor, like John Boehner, is blessedly out of office. He can talk all the smack his Beltway buddies will pay him for. Kiss and tell books and interviews are a coin of the sleazy, greasy realm of the loathsome, oleaginous Cuckservative. But what of those still on duty and on the line? You asked and Cantor told you.
In 2015, every Republican senator voted for this bill to repeal Obamacare with budget reconciliation, which was sent to President Obama’s desk for a veto. In 2017, voting on the same bill, some did not. Here are the senators who changed their positions, breaking their promise to repeal Obamacare.
- Senator Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.
- Senator Susan Collins, R-Maine
- Senator Dean Heller R-Nev.
- Senator John McCain, R-Ariz.
- Senator Shelley Moore-Capito, R-W.Va.
- Senator Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska
- Senator Rob Portman, R-Ohio
These are the Republicans who, given the chance to vote for a clean repeal of Obamacare like they promised, betrayed the American people. Every one of them except for Senator Collins were in the Senate in 2015 and voted for the same bill they voted against today.
Yep. Exact same bill. One difference. POTUS was ready to sign the sucker. This would imply ownership. This would imply consequences. And even worse…it would have Donald Trump’s name on it. That, right there, inspired John McCain. It inspired him to make like Lazarus, rise from his hospital bed, and stick a dagger right into the back of any effort to repeal the hated Obamacare law.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) cast the crucial surprise vote that killed Senate Republicans’ last-resort ObamaCare repeal bill early Friday morning in a shocking moment that at least temporarily ended the GOP’s hopes of eliminating the former president’s signature law. Voting shortly after midnight, McCain — who returned to the Senate on Tuesday after being diagnosed with brain cancer the week before — joined GOP Sens. Susan Collins (Maine) and Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) and all Democrats in opposing the measure that would have repealed key parts of ObamaCare. McCain cast the no vote two days after a dramatic return to the Senate floor during which he called on his colleagues to work together on major issues, which has long been a Senate tradition until the upsurge of partisanship in recent years.
If Congress were Shakespeare’s Theater of Surrender, McCain could be King Lear and Cantor the weasely Shylock. To these scumbags its all just a LARP. The play’s the thing, governance and actual attention to the issues that got them sent to Washington…Hah! Who cares about those rubes? McCain, who went to the Mayo Clinic to treat his own cancer tumor, can’t imagine why mere proles who served in the Navy like him can’t just shut their yaps and wait for the VA. I doubt Eric Cantor ever spent a day covered by Obamacare.
Besides, they both love Obamacare. It’s raised them so much money. It’s like opposing abortion. Guaranteed votes and money. If craziness like Operation Rescue or Project Veritas ever succeeded, they couldn’t oppose feticide for a living. If the Tea Party ever really made a comeback and trashed Obamacare they couldn’t hate on it for dollars.
Our political milieu is a Potemkin Village. We are shown the happy and positive promises, then media and government together ignore the real problems while jousting after simulated windmills, and We The Saps vote them into office time and again. Any time their cozy little racketeering agenda is exposed, they trot out an aborted baby or new Al-Qaeda second-in-command to keep the groundlings entertained.
With Republicans like Cantor and McCain representing “Conservative” opposition, I think we are pretty much guaranteed an experiment with greater socialism. It’s not like any of them will ever have a kid like poor little Charlie Gard. Death panels, quotas and rationed care are totally for the little people.
