GOP Senate candidate Martha McSally: ‘I’m getting my ass kicked’ because of vote to repeal Obamacare

Published

Republican Senate candidate Martha McSally (R-AZ) complained in a recent interview that she is getting her “ass kicked” because she voted to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care reform law.

McSally made the admission during a recent interview with conservative radio host Sean Hannity, AZCentral reported.

“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.”

McSally has repeatedly voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is known as “Obamacare.”

In 2017, she voted for a Republican plan called the American Health Care Act. The bill would have repealed the existing health care law, allowing insurance companies to reject people with pre-existing conditions. The Congressional Budget Office determined that the legislation would have resulted in 23 million fewer Americans having health insurance.

During an interview with The Arizona Republic, McSally said she is having her “character assassinated” because of the health care vote.

“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.

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined the other leading Democratic presidential primary candidates Wednesday night in the fieriest evening of the race so far.

His presence on the stage drew fire from the other candidates, but it also seemed to change the overall tone of the debate, with more attacks, counter-attacks, and passion than was generally seen earlier in the campaign.

Here’s a (necessarily subjective!) list of the winners and losers from the fray:

Winners

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) — Warren hit her stride right as the debate started by attacking Bloomberg for his record on the mistreatment of women, racist policies, and his tax returns. She repeatedly came back to skewer the former mayor, making herself the biggest and most notable presence in the debate. But importantly, she also continuously brought the discussion back to the issues she cares about — like expanding health care, environmental justice,  and consumer protection — while getting in digs at the other candidates on the stage.

Someone online changed former Mayor Michael Bloomberg's information on Wikipedia during the Wednesday debate to say that he died on Feb. 19.

After being ripped to shreds during the MSNBC Democratic debate, it became clear that Bloomberg wasn't quite as prepared as the other Democratic candidates.

The Wikipedia article was also changed to indicate that his cause of death was Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

Bloomberg had several unfortunate moments, namely his refusal to release female accusers from nondisclosure agreements, he came out in favor of fracking, he blamed India for China's involvement in climate change, and many many more things.

Moderator: "You've said you'll release your tax returns, but why do Democrats have to wait?"

Bloomberg: "We do business around the world. The document will be thousands of pages. I can't go to TurboTax."
