After the Senate vote to begin debate on the sham of a healthcare bill this afternoon (with a vote of 51-50, thanks to Pence’s tie-breaking vote), John McCain spoke. He rebuked the Senate for its partisanship and its greater good for political gain than American greatness.
It was great to hear what happens to a man when something like a brain tumor clarifies the mind and the priorities. I hope every Senator engraves his speech on the inside of his/her eyelids.
The Senate under McConnell has been utterly disgusting and inexcusable. He has been a party leader but not in any healthy sense a Senate leader. Sane American voices have got to gain the upper hand in Washington, drowning out the extremists and certainly drowning out the incredibly irresponsible President.
Pray for truth, grace, kindness, integrity to return to the heart of America. Please, please do pray.
