Worried that he’s finally worn out his welcome, as his decades of lies and distortions have come back to haunt him, John McCain is sending out desperate pleas for donations to fund his latest six-year senate campaign. At 80, he’s quite the optimist.
In his most recent begging missive he acts as if Arizona citizens have fallen prey to a plague of amnesia, as he attempts to make the fallacious case that he aggressively fought Obamacare. In fact, he did worse than nothing — he actually defended what he “more politely” called the “Affordable Care Act,” saying “elections have consequences” and “we should respect the process.” This double talk was in response to Sen. Ted Cruz’ filibuster of the bill that had to be passed before it could be seen.
John McCain was so enamored with Obama’s selection of Sylvia Mathews Burwell as secretary of Health and Human Services, the agency tasked with implementing the fundamentally flawed Obamacare, that he showed up at her Senate confirmation hearing although he isn’t a member of the Senate panel that vetted her nomination.
Reading the local news would lead the marginally informed to think McCain is being challenged by Democrat Ann Kirkpatrick, an on-again, off-again CD 1 U.S. Rep. who was bounced out of office after her first term and made a comeback when U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar relocated to CD 4 where he easily won reelection. The wizened McCain likely won’t have to worry about Kirkpatrick. Arizona Republicans are ready to call in the doctor…Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative, two-term former state senator who would knowledgeably work to reconfigure the medical monstrosity via her Patient Power Plan.
Check out her issues page and send her a donation. John McCain has curried the favor of lobbyists for decades. They eagerly keep funneling money to him. Kelli Ward can only be competitive with our help. John McCain was censured by elected state committeemen of his own party. The McEmbarrassment, who has spent his career colluding with Democrats can be put behind us with the election of Dr. Kelli Ward. We have a rare opportunity to make a difference. Let’s do it!.
