Remember that time like two months ago when Maverick McCain cast a decisive vote to defeat the heinous "skinny repeal" of the ACA, which was actually the least heinous of the GOP's healthcare plans that month, all of which would have thrown millions of Americans off insurance and made it harder for those with pre-existing conditions to get care? Letters and phone calls, demonstrators and crowds at town halls, made it clear that many Americans were aware of the stakes, and that politicians who voted to take health care away from millions would be held accountable.
