    U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) ^ | Sep 22 2017 | U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)
    WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today made these statements. “My friendship with John McCain is not based on how he votes but respect for how he’s lived his life and the person he is. “I respectfully disagree with his position not to proceed forward on Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson.  I know Graham-Cassidy-Heller-Johnson is the best chance to repeal and replace Obamacare. “Obamacare is collapsing in Arizona, South Carolina, and across the nation - driving up premiums and reducing choices.  I feel an obligation to fix this disaster and intend to push forward for state-centric health care versus Washington-knows-best health care. “I’m completely convinced...

    Here is the letter I just wrote: I can not believe I ever voted for you for President . . . actually I was voting for Sarah, not you anyhow. As a conservative I am fed up with this attitude of not taking what you can get and revisiting the issue another year solely because it is not perfect. Anyone who votes against this should be immediately stripped of their committee posts and standing in the Party. You have let your anger towards President Trump and ego get in the way of what this country needs right now, and that...

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said in a statement on Friday that he will oppose the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill. McCain’s vote against Graham-Cassidy effectively tanks renewed efforts to repeal Obamacare. McCain said in a statement: advertisement I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried. Nor could I support it without knowing how much it will cost, how it will effect insurance premiums, and how many people will be helped or hurt by it. Without a full CBO score, which won’t be...

    Mitch McConnell, is he the Republican Majority Senate Leader or a weak sister hiding in the closet of do and accomplish nothing productive or measurable. The great Senate majority leaders in American history were all leaders who kept their caucuses in line and ordered them to vote as guided by their leadership. Mitch McConnell is far from being one of these. He is weak, powerless and lets his caucus run all over him as they desire. Without further verbage or ado, I expect McConnell to do a 180 degree turn and "ORDER", Senators, Paul, Collins, Murkowski & that low life,...

    Calling his line of questioning during former FBI Director James Comey’s June 8 testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee “a colossal screw-up,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he got distracted by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) just minutes before it was his turn to question Comey. McCain told Esquire that a staffer had given him an iPhone with an email from Graham displayed on it, asking McCain to ask Comey some additional questions. McCain didn’t have the password for the iPhone and claimed that after the phone went black he couldn’t unlock it to keep reading. “I was looking...

    On Friday, October 10th, 2008, John McCain was giving a presentation at one of his rallies.  During this rally, an attendee stood up and asked a question about then candidate Senator Barack Obama.  LINK McCain responded at length admonishing her for the premise she had presented about Obama, when she said she feared an Obama presidency. During his presentation, he told her, the other attendees, and citizens around the nation that they had nothing to fear from an Obama presidency. It was essentially an endorsement.  Anyone aprehensive about an Obama presidency was told not to have any fear.  This was effectively...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has signed on to a new bill to be introduced Friday by Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, to block President Trump's order to ban transgender military service, according to two congressional aides. The stand-alone bill, which is also co-sponsored by Sen.

That amendment never received a floor vote due to a dispute between Republicans...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Democrats might be resisting Republican efforts to get information about a dossier on President Donald Trump because they are worried it might contain falsehoods. Democrats have claimed that Gowdy and other Republicans want to help the president by discrediting the dossier, according to Gowdy in an interview with The Daily Caller. "I don't know why anyone — from (California Democratic Rep.) Adam Schiff, to Vanity Fair, to Rachel Maddow — would not be curious whether or not the world's premier law enforcement agency relied upon a dossier in connection with an investigation without vetting it,"...
