McCain surgery for blood clot could complicate Senate vote

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

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.

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.
