Every Democrat & Three Renegades, McCain's Legacy

McCain Votes with Democrats
To Keep Obamacare
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  Every Democrat & Three Renegades -  That's who dealt a terrible blow last night to millions of Americans who have been shafted by Obamacare. The media, the entire Democrat Party and three renegade Republican senators -- McCain, Murkowski and Collins -- once again demonstrated why it is virtually impossible to get rid of entitlement programs.

This debate has been dominated by talk about those potentially uninsured and those with pre-existing conditions. Forgotten in all the sturm und drang were the millions of Americans whose lives were turned upside down by Obama's quasi-socialized healthcare scheme. The entire law was built on lies.

Obama said you could keep your insurance. That was the "Lie of the Year."

Obama said you could keep your doctor. Millions couldn't.

Obama said premiums would go down. They skyrocketed.

Countless small business owners, hanging by a thread after the Great Recession, were pushed over the edge. One reason Obama never achieved 3% economic growth during his presidency was because of the crushing weight of Obamacare's taxes and regulations on job creators.

I know it is tempting to be angry at the Republican Party. I confess that I am not very happy with the GOP right now. That said, another circular firing squad would cause even more cheering from the left.

Forty-nine Republican senators -- 94% of GOP Senate caucus -- did the right thing. All of the Democrats did the wrong thing. Unfortunately, it only took three GOP renegades to kill our chances.

The solution in my view is obvious: We must elect more conservatives!

McCain's Legacy - Senator John McCain said that the worst thing about Obamacare was the way it was passed -- "rammed through Congress . . . on a strict-party line basis." He's wrong. The worst thing about Obamacare is the way it hurt so many people.

McCain went on to say that Obamacare should not be repealed in the same way it was passed -- on a strict-party line basis. He added that the Senate must return to "regular order."

This is why Republicans have not been able to stop the constant drift toward bigger government. The left changes the rules to accomplish its goals, while our party gets hung up on the process.

I don't know if any Republican could have won in 2008. But John McCain surrendered any chance he had when he decided it would be too divisive to make an issue out of Barack Obama's attendance at a church led by an America-hating, bigoted pastor. That decision guaranteed Obama's election and the senator has now guaranteed that Obama's legacy will survive.

I will continue to pray for Senator McCain's victory over brain cancer, but his illness does not change the reality that his vote last night was a major victory for the big government left.

Is Top FBI Lawyer A Leaker? Circa reports that the FBI's general counsel, James Baker, is the subject of a criminal investigation for leaking classified information to the media. Baker is reportedly a "close confidant" of James Comey.

We will see where this investigation goes. But I was amused by the fact that not one of the major left-wing media outlets reported this news. I guess they were too busy obsessing over Russia and reporting fake news.

Another Hero Falls - Lt. Aaron Allen responded to a car crash yesterday afternoon. As he approached the vehicle, which had flipped over, someone inside the car opened fire. Allen, 38, was hit multiple times and killed.

Nicknamed "Teddy Bear," Allen was a beloved figure in the community. He had 20 years of law enforcement experience and had wanted to be a police officer since he was five years old. In 2015, Allen was recognized as the "Officer of the Year" by the Southport Indiana Police Department.

Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett praised Lt. Allen, saying he "was doing what officers do each day: responding to the scene of an accident to help someone in their time of need."

Once again, a community has lost a dedicated public servant and a family has lost a loved one who devoted his life to protecting us. This is what the sick, anti-law enforcement atmosphere generated by left-wing academics, organizations and politicians has led to. Our police officers deserve so much better
