McCain: On Obamacare, We Should ‘Respect the Outcomes of Elections’

Senator John McCain spoke on the Senate floor soon after Senator Ted Cruz left it, arguing that even if a senator doesn’t like Obamacare, President Obama was reelected and we should all “respect the outcomes of elections which reflect the will of the people.”

“The people spoke,” McCain said. “They spoke much to my dismay, but they spoke.” He quickly reassured listeners that accepting the results of the election does not mean they have to give up on attempts to “replace and repair” Obamacare.

Senator Cruz spoke for over 21 hours against Obamacare on the floor of the Senate from Tuesday evening into Wednesday afternoon.
