McCain: House GOP ‘Will Not Succeed in the End’ on CR


Senator John McCain had tough words for House Republicans tonight after the Senate rejected their latest amendments to the continuing resolution.

“They will not succeed in the end,” McCain told reporters of the House Republicans trying to tie anti-Obamacare measures to the CR.

“We can’t win,” the Arizona senator added. The House’s passing a clean CR, he said, is ”going to happen sooner or later.”

Asked if there would be another vote, McCain said,”No, no, no we’re not doing [that].” Senate majority leader Harry Reid, he added, “thinks that they [the House] are not going to act tonight.”
