Okay, I’ve always used a caveat when speaking of John McCain. I’m sure you have too. That is, despite how bad he has turned out to be, he was still a war hero. I’m amending that. Glenn Beck said it yesterday on his radio show and I am fully on board. Glenn said there ought to be a statute of limitations on war-hero status. I agree and John McCain is well passed it.
I will no longer state that he was a war hero. I can no longer, in good conscience, consider someone who has done so much damage to our country a war hero. There is example after example of him undermining the Constitution and true conservatives in his own party to warrant such a moniker.
And here is just another:
UPDATE: On his radio show Thursday, TheBlaze’s Glenn Beck called out McCain for his comments in September in light of his most recent remarks. You can listen to Beck’s commentary in our follow-up story.
For the original news story, read below.
After repeatedly criticizing senators such as Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) over their crusade to defund Obamacare, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for the “total repeal” of the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday. It’s a quick turnaround after the longtime senator, in September, proclaimed that it was “not rational” to think Obamacare could be defunded or repealed.
McCain outlined his “solution” during an interview with Greta Van Susteren, which culminated in an admission that the law should be repealed completely.
“The solution is, first of all, to let people keep their insurance if they want to,” he said. “Or at least reinstate them.”
He continued: “Second of all, let the insurance companies give a menu of whatever they want to provide. Third of all, medical savings account. Fourth of all, medical malpractice reform. Let people go across state lines to, in order to, if they can get a better insurance policy in another state. And remove this whole tax incentive for employers to provide employees health insurance.”
“That is repeal,” Van Susteren said, pointing out the obvious.
“That’s exactly right,” McCain replied. “That is total repeal in every other way. Because what Obamacare is, is an experiment in social engineering — in other words, making healthy people pay more…in order to subsidize the health care for people that are older and unhealthy. That is the ultimate in social engineering.”
