Where was McCain?

John McCain was supposed to deliver 100 House Republican votes. He only delivered 65. Democrats were supposed to deliver 120 House Democratic votes, they delivered 140.

“We’re optimistic that Senator McCain will bring House Republicans on board without driving other parties away, resulting in a successful deal for the American taxpayer,” said McCain spokeswoman Kimmie Lipscomb. – TIME

“What Senator McCain was able to do was to help bring all of the parties to the table, including the House Republicans, whose votes were needed to pass this” – McCain campaign top aide Steve Schmidt, Meet the Press, September 28, 2009
