True to form, McCain is speaking out against shitty partisan politics (even though he voted for the MTP)

It was actually a pretty good speech.  He wants to find a bipartisan solution. He was emphatic that even though he voted for the MTP, he would not vote for the current bill.

Fuck him. I wish his brain had popped on the flight back.

Full text of John McCain's Senate floor speech: 'Let's return to regular order'

I don't wish cancer on him, like some have.  I just wish he had died in the war.

Both sides have let this happen. Let's leave the history of who shot first to the historians.

Fuck you, McCain.  Fuck you.

I hope McCain gets better because he really needs to go fuck himself, and it's hard to do that when you're not well.

What better example of his legacy than a bunch of lovely, thoughtful, principled words that directly contradict his own actions.

Let the 20 hour countdown begin.  There are at least 3 votes for "established" bills already on the table (repeal, repeal/replace, repeal light) and possibly one more vote to just accept the house version.

If just one of those passes then this just went from sad to sadistic.
What's with the 20 hour thing?  Someone was on CNN saying they don't expect a final vote on this anytime soon, possibly as late as September.

original thoughts were that McConnell was going to jam this thing through as quickly as possible, which would have been 20 hours.

Honestly though, if you can't craft a bill that effects every citizen and 1/6th of the economy in less than 24 hours then you're probably not even trying.

mitch mcconnell never fails to smile or frown for the cameras in accordance with how things are going.  you can follow events in the senate just by going to thehill, etc. and seeing the look on his face
