Liberals are upset McCain, who said he would vote against the health care bill as it stands, voted in favor of a motion to proceed…
Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is an American hero. That is an indisputable fact.
The son of the Commander-in-Chief, Pacific Command during the Vietnam War, McCain’s Skyhawk dive bomber was shot down on October 26, 1967. With fractures in both arms and his right leg, McCain was given minimal care. After enduring interrogation, botched surgeries, solitary confinement, and torture, McCain was released on March 14, 1973.
Last week, McCain was diagnosed with a difficult-to-treat form of brain cancer. When McCain returned to the Senate Tuesday to cast a vote – merely a motion to proceed – to allow debate on the health care bill, liberals went apoplectic.
But before reading their reactions, it’s important to reiterate that McCain said on the Senate floor that he would NOT be voting for the Republicans’ health care bill as it stands currently.
Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) is the Democratic National Committee’s vice chair:
80,000 a year get a diagnosis of brain cancer. How many won't be insured after this vote, next vote? I know of one who will be insured

Liberal talking head Arianna Huffington of the Huffington Post and Uber tweeted:
Maybe cancer patients who lose insurance can read about all the gov-paid treatment McCain has received for decades. #placebo

Vox writer Matt Yglesias tweeted:
Inspiring to see McCain risk his health so that millions could some day experience the unique freedom that comes from having no insurance.

What do these three liberals have in common, besides making inaccurate, over-the-top statements that defame an American hero?
All three have spent a grand total of zero days serving their country in the United States military, let alone a single day as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam.
