Did McCain promise this man the same insurance as congress?

After McCain opened it up to questioning, one man angrily pointed at him and asked the senator why he deserves a better health care plan than him.

"I'm trying to get it for you," McCain told him. "We'll do it for you. We'll make it affordable and available to you."

  • Kind of vague. Is that his complete answer? Not sure thats what he was saying and I don't think that is something he can promise anyway...

  • I thought both McCain and Obama made that claim during the debates as well.

  • While he didn't promise that to him he did say something that just isn't going to happen. I'm not a major fan of McCain but he does sound to be on the right side of this . I think he is just being McCain though, glass ever half full. I'm sure he knows something will pass. It's not going to be like hillary care and be given up on. He wants it to be something that works for those who need healthcare, He is just telling the guy what he will try and do.
