thank you john

sometimes when you are facing death
you think about things differently
trying to do things right for the time you have remaining


i wonder if that is what happened to john mccain
as he stood up on the senate floor
a scar above his left eyebrow
bruising below his left eye

as he talked
well it was amazing
that just a few days before he was having that ball of cancer
cut out of his brain
that yielded a diagnosis
a death for sure soon diagnosis

when he got the word of what it was
he knew i am sure
like kennedy did years ago
he was now on borrowed time

now i dont agree with his politics
that doesnt mean i dont have a lot of respect
for him as a person
knowing what he has gone through in the past

he must be one tough old codger

as he stood up to talk
i wasnt going to really listen to him
i thought he was going to go on and on
on the usual party line way that politicians do
not it seems able to really say what they think

i guess
what the hell im gotta loose

he let the senators have it with a double barrel shotgun
blast of words

he said what needed to be said
what needs to be done

now he was talking about the healthcare bill
but he also was talking about all of the bills

they need to be done in a bipartisan way
the democrats ramrodded somewhat the obamacare through
much like the republicans are trying to do now

mccain said i voted to continue talking about this healthcare
i am voting against the bill as it stands now

thanks mccain
someone needed to say that

a bill without bipartisan input and support
it wont survive the test of time
when the next party takes over
they just change it back to where they want it

can you imagine if the time and energy spent to overturn obamacare
could have been used to fix what was wrong with it
to make it better
where our healthcare system would be today

i hope
that all of congress both republicans and democrats and independents
really listened to what he said
take it to heart
go forward to fix things that need fixing
a just immigration policy
tax reform but not just for the rich
military budgets and all our wars
that would be a start

thanks mccain
this may be the speech that you will be best remembered for
it all needed to be said
