Hypocrisy on Healthcare. John McCain is opposed to universal healthcare at government expense. Think about this.
John McCain was born into a MILITARY family, which he readily concedes. What you are not to think of is that HIS healthcare and that of his entire family was provided and paid for by the United States military: the Government.
He attended Annapolis, a high-quality MILITARY academy (university), at Government expense. In that institutional setting, all his medical needs were met and paid for by the Government, from general revenues.
He then went into the MILITARY himself, where all his medical needs were met at PUBLIC expense.
In 1981, he left the military. The very next year, he ran for Congress. He was elected to the House in 1982, taking office in January 1983. In 1986, he was elected to the U.S. Senate, and has been there ever since, where he has been covered by an extremely generous Federal healthcare plan again, at public expense.
What this all means is that for essentially his ENTIRE LIFE, John McCain's medical care has been paid for by the GOVERNMENT, out of general revenues. How on Earth does he dare to say that the rest of us should not have medical care paid for by the Government out of general revenues? The nerve of the basterisk! Hypocrisy is his middle name: John Hypocrisy McCain.
