General Douglas MacArthur once said “old soldiers don’t die, they just fade away.” Unfortunately, MacArthur’s saying does not apply to ex servicemen who become Senators. John McCain has become an embarrassment and is clearly senile fool. He is now open to tax increases to avoid sequestration. This is the stance of the Obama Regime, who the first time since the 2010 elections are on the losing end of a political standoff. McCain is knocking the feet out under Republicans and helping the Obama Regime.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday that he is willing to consider supporting new tax revenue as part of a plan to avert $85 billion in looming budget cuts, as the White House pushed back against Republican lawmakers who say President Obama is solely responsible for the spending reductions.
McCain made the comments as he once again warned about the adverse effects of the spending reductions, known as sequestration, that will require federal agencies to slash $85 billion in spending by Sept. 30 — including $43 billion at the Pentagon.
“Republicans and Democrats are responsible for this new cliff and I’ll take responsibility for it for the Republicans,” McCain said of the spending cuts. “But we’ve got to avoid it. We’ve got to stop it.”
Averting the cuts “requires bipartisanship,” McCain added. “Will I look at revenue closers? Maybe so. But we’ve already just raised taxes. Why do we have to raise taxes again?”
I wish this senile Muslim Brotherhood stooge would take MacArthur advise and just fade away. There are plenty of great golf courses in Arizona, he could spend his time being useful there.
Update: Eaglesoars pointed out that McCain can’t use his hands for many functions. I forgot about that and the gold course analogy was metaphorical. That said, he can enjoy his time watching some good golf, heck I would!
