He is just not being thanked on social media but in another very special way. Supporters have left signs on a road in his Arizona community thanking him for the way he voted to help the country.

On Saturday, his wife Cindy posted pictures of the signs on Instagram to the delight of most of the country. The signs had been left by supporters on a road that the McCains usually travel. Therefore, they were sure to see them. Cindy thanked those who left the signs that made the McCain family very happy.

McCain's vote

#John McCain had been away from the Senate to undergo surgery above his left eye. Then he was diagnosed with brain cancer. However, he did not let those two things keep him away from showing up on Thursday night, July 27, 2017 to cast the deciding vote. Afterward, people around the country applauded him for proving that he is a man of his word for doing what he promised to do. Twitter was full of tweets of thanks for the senator.

McCain's colleagues, friends, and admirers congratulated and thanked him for being a true hero in the matter that affects so many American people. Celebrities also reached out to the senator thanking him for what they thought was the right thing for him to do. Senator McCain appreciates all the thanks he is getting, but he didn't do it for accolades.

He did it because that was the way his heart and mind led him.

What the vote means

McCain was only one of just three Republican senators to cast a vote against what has been dubbed the "Skinny Repeal." The two other Republican senators who voted the way McCain did to defeat the repeal were Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Senator Susan Collins of Maine. One reason this is so amazing is that it was a major change in from what it had been earlier in the week.

Since President Donald Trump took office, this was the third failed attempt to repeal Obamacare. It has been seven years since the Republicans have tried to do away with or change the #affordable care act. This seems to be one of the issues that just won't go away in the White House. It keeps coming up over and over again, and it is not over yet.

After voting the way he did, the 80-year-old Arizona senator said the amendment would have repealed some of the most challenging regulations, but it did not offer any replacement for the American people. That's why he voted the way he did. #senator john mccain
