Skip to comments.Report: McCain Wants Congress to Pass ‘Gang of Eight’ Amnesty Bill When He Returns
Posted on 08/04/2017 6:20:10 AM PDT by Rusty0604
According to The Arizona Republic, McCain, before leaving Washington to get cancer treatments in Arizona, reportedly spoke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) about joining forces again to pass the Gang of Eight bill. After joining Sens. Susan Collins (R-ME) and Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) to defeat the GOPs skinny repeal of Obamacare, McCain, who has always wanted to be known as a straight-talking independent, was lionized by Democrats and the legacy media, with CNN paying homage to his maverick moment.
Referring to the Gang of Eight bill, McCain told the Republic on Thursday that he wanted to reintroduce the same package that was passed through the United States Senate and never taken up in the House.
Immigration reform is one of the issues Id like to see resolved, McCain reportedly added. Ive got to talk to him (Schumer) about when would be the best time. I think there are all kinds of deals to be made out there. I really do.
According to the Republic, McCain, who turns 81 on Aug. 29, is in a more reflective place in his long Senate career as he faces his serious health challenge and undergoes chemotherapy.

John McCain, like the senators from Maine and Alaska, is a Democrat. He should be treated as such.
Nothing like going scorched earth when the end is near, right John?
Satan, please take John swiftly home
Yay.. more deal makers! That’s what we need! Forget principled leadership, deal makers rule, well at least for now. They will pass this crap, trump better take a stand on this and get his tail to the bully pulpit.
Pope John McCain I has spoken.
As it is written, so let it be done...................
His only regret in life is that America is still breathing.
When it comes to McCain, Congress should pass the “Brain of Zero” bill.
Take your Gang of Eight and shove it, Senator McNasty!!!
We voted for Donald Trump and his immigration policies, NOT YOURS.
Just shut and stop your dead man walking showboating, we all are sick of you.
McCain ought to be reflecting on meeting his maker very soon rather than hating Trump so much that he opts for hurting his country above all else.
Trump will have the last laugh on his gang of 8 bill because Trump will veto it anyway.
O Lord, please remove McPain from our Republic. Please do it soon...
I hope he does not return. Any chance we can get him to do one last flight as a pilot in a transport plane with passengers Merkowski, Collins, Flake, Rubio, Caputo, McConnell, and Shumer as passengers? I’d gladly volunteer to put a few K toward the purchase of aviation fuel.
DO IT FOR JOHNNIE!!!
“When he returns...”
When I read this why do scenes from “Night of the Living Dead” come to mind?
John: becoming a Rat at your age is the first sigh in brain damage.
Sorry but amen to that!
Well this scum is consistent to the end. He used (abused) his POW status to become a senator and now he is using his illness for sympathy to get what he wants in the way of laws.
John McCain is such a Traitor and complete scumbag.
Just what republicans need, keep Obamacare and pass amnesty when the American people voted for a wall.
Ask yourselves WHY?
