McCain says Democrats have not heard end of debate

WASHINGTON (AP) – Sen. John McCain says Democrats who championed the historic health care bill that passed the House haven’t heard the last of the issue, predicting reprisals at the polls and in the courts.

Interviewed today (March 22) on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” McCain repeated House Republican assertions that the transformative legislation amounts to a “government takeover” of health care.

The Arizona Republican declared that Republicans “will challenge it every place we can,” and called the measure, approved on a 219-212 vote, “terribly wrong for America.” He said he was repulsed by “all this euphoria going on” and argued that “outside the Beltway, the American people are very angry. They don’t like it and we’re going to repeal this.”

  1. Repeal? Get real Senator, even if the R’s take control of the House and Senate they would neeed veto-proof majorities to overcome Obama’s veto. Can’t wait for the senator to go to seniors and tell them he’s putting the “donut hole” back in the Medicare drug plan and force them to spend more. LOL. Not going to happen
