John McCain is right...the Senate is not Trump's subordinates, they are his equal. They should, therefore, do its job and help Americans, standing up to Trump.
McCain took to the floor and urged his fellow Republicans to stand up to Trump, who has frequently chided the Republican-led Congress for failing to advance his agenda.
“We are not the president’s subordinates. We are his equals,” he said to a smattering of applause in the chamber.
McCain, who has served in the Senate for 30 years and ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008 against Barack Obama, has frequently criticized the Trump administration, particularly on issues of foreign policy and national security.
Most of his remarks on Tuesday, however, were directed at his fellow senators. He blasted the process through which Senate Republicans crafted their healthcare legislation, shutting out Democrats and writing the bill out of public view.
McCain has repeatedly said that Democrats did little better in 2010, when Obamacare was passed, and added, "We shouldn't do the same with ours." Reuters
