Trump Tweets: Rips into McCain, nudges others over health care bill


President Trump went on a “Twitter storm” Saturday morning, after Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced Friday that he would not support the Graham-Cassidy proposal, which is a last-ditch effort by Republicans to repeal ObamaCare.

With McCain pulling his support for the bill, it is feared that it may be on it’s “deathbed,” which would mean McCain has killed Republican efforts to repeal ObamaCare twice.

President Trump let loose with a string of tweets against McCain over the matter Saturday:

“John McCain never had any intention of voting for this Bill, which his Governor loves. He campaigned on Repeal & Replace. Let Arizona down!”

“Arizona had a 116% increase in ObamaCare premiums last year, with deductibles very high. Chuck Schumer sold John McCain a bill of goods. Sad.”

“Large Block Grants to States is a good thing to do. Better control & management. Great for Arizona. McCain let his best friend L.G. down!”

President Trump then put pressure on two other GOP Senators to vote for the bill.

Sen. Rand Paul has come out in opposition to the bill, but Trump tweeted, “I know Rand Paul and I think he may find a way to get there for the good of the Party!” 

The president then put pressure on Sen. Lisa Murkowski, from Alaska, who has been coy about which way she will vote. “Alaska had a 200% plus increase in premiums under ObamaCare, worst in the country. Deductibles high, people angry! Lisa M comes through,” Trump tweeted.
