US Senate to delay votes on Republican health-care bill

Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. leaves a meeting of GOP senators in the U.S. capitol on June 22 when most Republican senators were given their first opportunity to look at legislation aimed at overhauling the Affordable Care Act during the closed door meeting

"In the meantime, Cheryl and I extend our best wishes to John, Cindy and the entire McCain family and pray for his speedy recovery", Flake said.

The five-centimeter blood clot was removed and the surgery went "very well", the hospital said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellCBO won't have Monday score for Senate healthcare bill After delay, Senate Republicans struggle not to let healthcare stall Health Secretary Price: More people will be covered under GOP bill than are now covered MORE (R-Ky.) announced Saturday night that Senate consideration of legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare will be delayed while Sen.

Meanwhile, two Republican senators - Susan Collins of ME and Rand Paul of Kentucky - have already said they will not support a motion to proceed to floor debate on the legislation.

And the Republican senator's absence from the Capitol next week would have complicated the already tight math surrounding a planned Senate health care vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

This comes on the heels of McConnell cutting the Senate's recess in half to focus on the new bill.

However, there was no reaction, as such, from the 1 p.m. lunchtime crowd to the protest , which lasted for less than five minutes. President Donald Trump has been showered with fanfare since he stepped on his property at Trump National Friday for the U.S.


But Senate Republicans have been seeking to overhaul health care and deliver on the party's promise to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, which they've been pledging to do since its 2010 enactment. There are 52 Republican senators. And now with McCain staying home, the GOP leadership is less likely to gain 50 votes, a threshold to begin debate on the legislation.

The newest version attempts to attract conservative support by allowing insurers to offer skimpy plans alongside more robust ones, but also reaches out to moderates by adding billions in help for the opioid crisis and to defray high costs for consumers.

"The Senator is resting comfortably at home and is in good condition".

"Tissue pathology reports are pending within the next several days", the statement reported.

McCain, 80, is a three-time survivor of melanoma. Records of his medical exams released in 2008 when he was the GOP candidate for president showed that he has had precancerous skin lesions removed and had an early stage squamous cell carcinoma, an easily cured skin cancer, removed.

He was re-elected in November to a sixth Senate term.
