Senator John McCain now calls for total repeal of ObamaCare

11/13/13, Sen. John McCain’s Stunning Flip-Flop on ‘Total Repeal’ of Obamacare – Watch the Before and After, The Blaze, Jason Howerton

“After repeatedly bashing senators like Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) over their crusade to defund Obamacare, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called for the “total repeal” of the Affordable Care Act on Wednesday. It’s a stunning turnaround after the longtime senator in September proclaimed that it was “not rational” to think Obamacare could be defunded or repealed. McCain then laid out his “solution,” which culminated in an admission that he is now calling for “total repeal.”

“The solution is, first of all, to let people keep their insurance if they want to,” he said. “Or at least reinstate them.”

He continued: “Second of all, let the insurance companies to give a menu of whatever they want to provide. Third of all, medical savings account. Fourth of all, medical malpractice reform. Let people go across state lines to, in order to, if they can get a better insurance policy in another state. And remove this whole tax incentive for employers to provide employees health insurance.”

“That is repeal,” Greta Van Susteren said, pointing out the obvious.

“That’s exactly right,” McCain replied. “That is total repeal in every other way. Because what Obamacare is, is an experiment in social engineering — in other words making health people pay more…in order to subsidize the health care for people that are older and unhealthy. That is the ultimate in social engineering.”

It doesn’t appear that McCain misspoke or accidentally supported the full repeal of the Affordable Care act as the TV producers seemingly placed the caption “Sen. John McCain Calls for Total Repeal of Obamacare” on the screen before he actually did, hinting that it may have been planned.“…(videos at link)

“Did anybody else watch John McCain today on Greta Van Susteren call for REPEAL of ObamaCare? If someone can get a video link or transcript of McCain’s call for REPEAL of ObamaCare, please post here. Here is the observation of this by a commenter on the Gun & Game Website:

Just turned on FOX News and Greta Van Sustern and John McCain was on with Greta and the headline said “Senator John McCain calls for total repeal of Obamacare.” Was anyone else watching this? Did I read that right? I about fell over backwards when I saw what I thought I saw. 

And here is what McCain was saying about ObamaCare Repeal back in September:

“In the United States Senate, we will not repeal or defund Obamacare. We will not. And to think that we can is not rational.”

Senator McCain, you owe Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee a HUGE apology.”
