McCain apologizes to Dems for Rand Paul

John McCain voted to take away your right to a trial by jury.

John McCain apologized to Democrats that Rand Paul wanted the Bill of Rights to be enforced
  • Senator Paul wanted to protect your right to a trial by jury.
  • Senator McCain voted to have the military jail you forever without a trial. 

Big Government worshipping Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) apologized to Democrats for a Republican attempt to block progress on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), and said that blocking is helping to make the Democratic argument that filibuster reform is needed in the Senate to help move bills along more quickly.

McCain spoke on the Senate floor Monday afternoon, and told his Democratic colleagues that the "senator from Kentucky" will object to any more unanimous consent agreements until his particular amendment is considered. McCain didn't say it was Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), but Paul has previously said he would hold up work on the NDAA over language about the ability to detain terrorist suspects.

McCain then apologized for the delay, and said the blocking effort could be making an argument for filibuster reform reports The Hill.

"Mr. Chairman, I again apologize for what seems to have happened, and much to my dismay, it lends some credence to the ... argument that maybe we ought not to do business the way that we are doing it here in the United States Senate," McCain said.

He also said it is "disappointing" that any senator would feel that his "particular agenda is so important that it affects the lives and the readiness and the capabilities of the men and women who are serving in the military and our ability to defend this nation."

Rand Paul speaks out right before both parties voted to abolish the Constitution and grant the military the power to jail you forever without a trial.
