That’s right, while all Republicans and even some Democrats voted no on the devastating policy, McCaskill stood with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in voting “present.”
This shouldn’t have been a hard vote for Sen. McCaskill. A single-payer system would put the government in charge of all aspects of health care, eliminating choices and freedom for patients. It would lead to monumental tax hikes and cost $32 TRILLION over 10 years. Trillion with a T.
Instead of voting no on this monstrosity, Sen. McCaskill let her true-liberal colors shine, ignoring the fact that Missourians do not want and could not afford this impossible system.
If Claire McCaskill won’t stand up and vote against single-payer health care, will she back away from any of the far-left’s extreme ideas? It doesn’t appear likely.
