McCain: Republicans’ attempt to defund Obamacare ‘a fool’s errand’

 

In an interview with Brian Williams, Sen. John McCain said lawmakers have eroded the confidence of the American people and “damaged our credibility very badly.” And although many of the members of the House elected in 2010 had promised to repeal or defund Obamacare, McCain said trying to do it in this way – during the government shutdown -- was “a fool’s errand.” The pain inflicted on the American people “was totally unnecessary and we cannot do this again,” he said.
