Senator John McCain betrayed his own party after he stood with Democrats to keep Obamacare intact.
He had no regrets for selling the Republican party down the river.
Reportedly, it’s widely believed that he cast the vote as a spiteful act solely for the purpose of going after President Donald Trump and his administration.
According to Jack Posobiec, the Capitol Hill, Republican operative, McCain laughed it up with Democrats after the vote, then dropped this shocking statement : “Let’s see Donald make america great again now.”
Multiple Hill staffers confirm last night McCain was heard laughing w Dems and remarked, "Lets see Donald make america great again now"

But that is not all. There is even a video that was taken in the chamber after the vote in which you can vividly see him hugging Chuck Schumer.
Reportedly after his despicable act of betrayal he said : “From the beginning, I have believed that Obamacare should be repealed and replaced with a solution that increases competition, lowers costs, and improves care for the American people.
The so-called ‘skinny repeal’ amendment the Senate voted on today would not accomplish those goals. While the amendment would have repealed some of Obamacare’s most burdensome regulations, it offered no replacement to actually reform our health care system and deliver affordable, quality health care to our citizens.
The Speaker’s statement that the House would be ‘willing’ to go to conference does not ease my concern that this shell of a bill could be taken up and passed at any time.”
McCain continued : “I’ve stated time and time again that one of the major failures of Obamacare was that it was rammed through Congress by Democrats on a strict-party line basis without a single Republican vote.
We should not make the mistakes of the past that has led to Obamacare’s collapse, including in my home state of Arizona where premiums are skyrocketing and health care providers are fleeing the marketplace.
We must now return to the correct way of legislating and send the bill back to committee, hold hearings, receive input from both sides of aisle, heed the recommendations of nation’s governors, and produce a bill that finally delivers affordable health care for the American people.”
