Senate

McCain calls Washington the ‘city of Satan’

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called Washington, D.C., the “city of Satan”
from the Senate floor on Wednesday while describing the effects of the
healthcare law currently under review across the street at the Supreme
Court.

“It’s interesting that the very same organizations that all signed up… and were bludgeoned into supporting ObamaCare… are the same organizations that come to our offices and ask for relief from ObamaCare,” said McCain.

{mosads}”It’s a fascinating commentary on trying to do the Lord’s work in the city of Satan,” concluded the senior senator form Arizona. 

Sen. John Thune (R-N.D.), who is generally straight-laced in his own floor remarks, quickly responded with a chuckle to McCain’s colorful comment, saying “my colleague from Arizona always has a way with words when it comes to describing the strange meanderings of the processes here in Washington.”

Thune, McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) were on the floor to discuss their goal to repeal the healthcare law regardless if it is shot down by the Supreme Court.
