JUST IN: McCain Betrays Veterans Everywhere With Shock Move After Cancer Diagnosis

Sen. John McCain, who certainly has a respectable service record as a Vietnam POW, has been the subject of critique from many conservatives for getting a little too comfortable enjoying the backdoor, shady deals made in the halls of Congress.

Now he’s taking fire after his brain cancer diagnosis for what he DIDN’T let the VA do — the same VA he allegedly tells veterans they’d be crazy not to use for all their medical needs.

Disabled Veterans reports:

One of the most infamous veterans, Senator John McCain (R-Az), rejected free VA surgical services when he instead received surgical treatment at Mayo for emergency brain tumor removal.

Over the past two months, Washington DC insiders have wondered why McCain has behaved so erratically, often tripping on his questioning during hearings. Last week, McCain supposedly needed non-emergent surgery on a blood clot in his cheek.

Yesterday, it was announced McCain received emergency surgery to remove a deadly brain tumor called a glioblastoma during a 3-hour procedure at Mayo Clinic in Arizona.

This kind of brain cancer is generally terminal with a short amount of time between diagnosis and death.

According to the American Brain Tumor Association, this condition is a particularly aggressive tumor. The median survival rate post-diagnosis is 14 months meaning McCain will likely step down from office immediately.

McCain is historically noted as telling veterans it is “foolish” for them to pursue non-VA care while he refuses to receive health care from Phoenix VA. It is important to note Mayo Clinic now refuses to accept Veterans Choice to treat veterans eligible for non-VA care.

SHARE this on Facebook and Twitter if you think it’s hypocritical that McCain chose an expensive private hospital over FREE VA care.

    I don’t disagree with Sen.McCain. When you have a serious medical problem you go to the best doctors you can afford and the best hospitals for treatment. That is exactly what the senator has done. It’s not a slur against the V.A., it’s a matter of choice. On the back side, even with all the changes Pres. Trump is trying to get for veterans some V.A. hospitals the level of care doesn’t exisi.

      You are wrong, for this type of cancer he is a goner, he should have sucked it up and used the VA. At least he would have went out practicing what he preaches.

      His nickname after his Vietnam experience was SONGBIRD. He was #1 on the list of traitors until Nixon pardoned them all. Yes, he was a POW, yes he suffered some but don’t promote him ONLY as a POW – tell the whole truth.

    Have a heart folks. I can understand why he went to Mayo Clinic for emergency brain tumor removal. Tell me that if you could afford it , you would not do the same. Cancer is a scary, scary thing. In my family scene (including in-laws, I have had a 1 sister, 2 brother-in-laws, Mother-in law, die of cancer. The word puts me in panic mode. This also may account for his erratic behavior over the last year. So give the guy a break. Perhaps it wasn’t him but his wife and family that insisted he go to Mayo.

      Sorry, I’m not buying that. The VA was just about destroyed by Obama. Years of waiting time for Vets to get medical care. Those Vets can’t afford to go to Mayo, and McCain could care less. He gets the best, our Vets get the crap.

    VA surgeons not good enough for him but good enough for all other veterans. He is such a jerk who has opposed our President because he was able to do what he could not do… win the presidency.

    Mayo diagnosed my CA in 2010 and treated me most of 2011.Without my ability to go there I wouldnt be alive today .Under the new policy under my Obamacare,I cannot return to Mayo as it wont pay for some of the testing.Wont pay for Private rooms,so if a family can afford good care,they should.Regarding the VA,they do a good job mostly and in my experience and that of my buddy who needed spinal surgery ,if they cannot perform the surgery they send you out which for him was to UCLA …..We all can complain about things but allow the McCain family to be allowed to grieve,be at his side without the hate …

    If he was such a hero, so respected. Why did President Nixon pardon him?

    My husband was told that he didn’t qualify for VA benefits… he would have to pay just like going to our family doctor so he goes to our family doctor.

    He was convicted of treason and sentenced to death by firing squad and then pardoned by President Nixon. He “colluded” with the enemy…

    He has Satan in him! He needs to repent of his sins and his evil ways! He may not last very long so needs to check in on his eternity and where he will end up!

    He is filled with hate! He may not last too long so he needs to make peace with his maker!

    Temperament has to do with aggression…idiot. And how dare you call people who defend this breed uneducated. I am very educated and I WORK IN AN ANIMAL HOSPITAL WHERE I ACTUALLY HANDLE DOGS. You’re clearly the uneducated one going against the breed solely due to the media and haven’t experienced anything with this breed yourself. I have had more issues with smaller dog breeds than I have with large breeds. And honestly, the issues with large dogs….weren’t with pit bulls. You’re seriously pathetic
