VIDEO: McCain ignored doctors, made risky trip to Washington to cast historic ‘no’ vote

Sen. John McCain’s momentous “thumbs down” vote on Republicans’ proposal to repeal Obamacare may not have happened if Meghan McCain had gotten her way.

The senator’s famous vote in July 2017 and the impassioned speech he gave that same week on the Senate floor came just about 10 days after he had brain surgery to remove a tumor, said Meghan McCain and the senator’s biographer and longtime speechwriter, Mark Salter, on “The View” this morning.

The article goes on to state the following:

Doctors in Arizona warned the veteran senator against flying to Washington, D.C., for the health care vote because “basically your brain could explode if you get on a plane this soon after brain surgery,” Meghan McCain recalled.

“He said ‘It’s my life and my choice!'” his daughter said, adding of the subsequent flight to Washington. “That plane ride was horrible.”

The seriously ill McCain took the Senate floor on Friday, July 28, surprising his GOP colleagues and the public by voting no to the Republican attempt to undo the Affordable Care Act, ending GOP efforts to repeal Obamacare.
