John McCain’s vote is critical enough that he’s needed in the Senate on Tuesday as his vote is crucial for passage of their bill.
CNN reports he will be there:
“Senator McCain looks forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea,” his office said in a statement.
The Arizona Republican underwent brain surgery earlier this month and announced last week he has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
McCain’s return gets lawmakers one vote closer to beginning debate on their health care proposal. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell needs at least 50 votes to advance the legislation, and can only lose two votes from his 52-member conference.
He’s a fighter. And screw you to all of the people who call this man a traitor. I’d say you should be ashamed of yourselves, but you people are filth and you have no shame.
