mccain-obama Washington DC, Feb 26 (THAINDIAN NEWS) US President Barack Obama and his former Republican rival John McCain are still exchanging barbs, as if the Presidential campaign is still on. At a health care summit Senator John McCain said that Barack Obama didn’t keep his promise to bring about change in Washington. Then the President Barack Obama ticked off the Arizona Republican, and also put him in his place by saying that, “we’re not campaigning any more. The election is over.”

Senator John McCain also didn’t take things lying down, and retorted back that, he’s “reminded of that every day.” “I hope that that would be an argument for us to go through this 2,400-page document, remove all the special deals for the special interests and favored few, and treat all Americans the same under provisions of the law, so that they will know that geography does not dictate what kind of health care they would receive,” McCain told Obama.

McCain said that Barack Obama promised better governance during the campaign “and what we got was a process you and I both said we would change in Washington.” John McCain has also spoken against the Democrats for finalizing the health care legislation behind barred doors, even though he said that Barack Obama had promised transparency in the health care negotiations.
