GOP Lawmaker: Arizona Should Recall McCain Over Cancer

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) said Monday that Arizona should recall Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) while he undergoes cancer treatment, saying that McCain’s ouster would give Arizonans a senator who keeps his word.

Gohmert’s remarks come after McCain announced his opposition to the latest GOP attempt to repeal ObamaCare, putting the bill closer to failure and enraging Republicans.

“You know, nothing inhibits recovery from cancer like stress. I think that Arizona could help him and us. Recall him, let him, you know, fight successfully this terrible cancer. And let’s get somebody in here who will keep the word he gave last year,” Gohmert said on “Fox & Friends.”

McCain came out against the Graham-Cassidy repeal bill last week, though Senate Republicans have since circulated a new draft of the legislation in an attempt to win over several key lawmakers. The Arizona senator was also the deciding “no” vote that sank a repeal attempt in July. 

Gohmert argued that had McCain said last year what he would later do with the ObamaCare repeal, then his primary opponents would have beat him in the election. 

“He’s got cancer,” Gohmert added of McCain.

“It’s a tough battle, but stress is a real inhibitor toward getting over cancer. So let him go back, deal with the cancer. Let Arizona recall him so that we can get somebody that will keep his word from last year.”
