John McCain's brain tumor affecting his judgement

So...if McCain had voted "yes", would Sen. Johnson have come to the same conclusion?  

...and, to add insult to injury...a month earlier, Johnson was among four GOP senators who, minutes after McConnell unveiled his initial bill, said they opposed it and would vote NO.



GOP senator suggests brain tumor affected John McCain health care vote

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Ron Johnson suggested that fellow Republican Sen. John McCain's brain tumor and the after-midnight timing of the vote were factors in the Arizona lawmaker's decisive vote against the GOP health care bill.

"He has a brain tumor right now. That vote occurred at 1:30 in the morning. Some of that might have factored in," Wisconsin's Johnson said.

Johnson: "I don't know exactly what. ... I really thought John was going to vote yes."

McCain had clear reasons for voting no.  He said he opposed the bill because it fell short of the Republican promise to repeal and replace the 2010 law with meaningful reform.
