McCain: Sure, Obama could cave and repeal the new healthcare law himself
God bless him:
Political pressure might become so intense that President Obama would agree to repeal major portions of the healthcare bill he signed into law recently, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said today.
Even if Republicans win Congress in 2010, Obama could veto any legislation repealing healthcare reform. But McCain suggested the public might feel so strongly that Obama would cave.
“If the intensity level is as high as it is, I can draw you a scenario where the president would be forced to repeal or really replace it with the provisions [Republicans] wanted,” McCain said in an interview with KFYI 550.
What can you say after statements like that? Keep in mind that this was the Republican party’s candidate for President less than two years ago. Completely devoid of any political reality.
One wonders what the Senator would be saying if he wasn’t in a tough primary battle for his political life?
