John McCain will not go away quietly. In fact, as he faces his greatest challenge, he seems more determined to do the right thing as senator as opposed to doing the thing he would be ideologically be expected to do.
From the Hill: "Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.) is backing a bipartisan bill that would block President Trump’s ban on transgender people serving in the military.
“When less than one percent of Americans are volunteering to join the military, we should welcome all those who are willing and able to serve our country,” McCain said in a statement.
“Any member of the military who meets the medical and readiness standards should be allowed to serve — including those who are transgender," he said."
Way to go, Sen. McCain!
