Sens. John Thune and Mike Rounds join the chorus of Republicans praying for Sen. John McCain’s recovery as do all citizens of good will for this remarkable man who has dedicated his life to public service.

But the earlier statements of these two senators in support of the repeal of the Affordable Health Care Act suggest that this is part of the ultimate Faustian deal to urgently pray for the recovery of Sen. John McCain so that he might fly back to Washington to vote to strip 23 million Americans, including thousands of people in South Dakota, of their health care insurance.

Citizens of good will wish recovery for Sen. McCain and continued health coverage for all who need similar medical care and treatment.
