GOP Senate Candidate Martha McSally Whines: ‘I’m Getting My A** Kicked Over My Repeal Obamacare Vote’

GOP Senatorial candidate Martha McSally (R-AZ) has a bad case of the midterm blues, lamenting during a recent interview that she’s getting her “ass kicked” over of her unpopular vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

McSally made this confession to Fox News’ Sean Hannity on his radio show, according to AZCentral.

“Well, Sean, I did vote to repeal and replace Obamacare on that House bill — I’m getting my ass kicked for it right now because it’s being misconstrued by the Democrats,” she said. “They’re trying to, you know, invoke fear in people who have family members or loved ones with pre-existing conditions.”

McCally has made repeated votes to repeal the Affordable Care Act, more commonly called Obamacare. In 2017, she voted for a GOP plan, promoted by President Donald Trump, called the American Health Care Act. The bill was designed to repeal Obamacare, allowing health insurance corporations to reject people with pre-existing conditions once again. The Congressional Budget Office calculated that the legislation would have reduced the number of Americans with health insurance by 23 million.

Thankfully the plan was ultimately defeated by the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ) who killed the bill with a dramatic thumbs down vote that sent shockwaves throughout the GOP.

During the interview with The Arizona Republic, Mcsally complained that she’d had her “character assassinated” because of her voting record.

“Now what we have is people right now, under Obamacare, with pre-existing conditions who have no health insurance,” McSally insisted, adding that people don’t want to buy the “crappy insurance” offered under the Affordable Care Act.

Only Republicans would whine that being held to account for their voting record is somehow character assassination.
