McCain health issues delay Senate vote on GOP 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

"Senator McCain received excellent treatment at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, and appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff".

The Senate leader had planned action on the controversial bill next week but Senator John McCain announced on Saturday he would be staying in Arizona following surgery for a blood clot.

Two of the 52 GOP senators have already said they will oppose the legislation. Along with all 48 senators in the Democratic Caucus - and without McCain - that would be enough to block the bill from proceeding to debate.

U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, will be recovering from surgery in Arizona next week, leading Republican leadership to postpone its health care bill. With all Democrats voting no, that would leave Republicans with just 49 votes, given McCain's absence. He will be in Arizona next week as he recovers based on the advice of his doctors, the statement said.

A further delay in the schedule is bad news for Senate Republicans, as it will allow opponents of the legislation more time to pressure wavering GOP centrists to vote against it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had been planning to hold a key procedural vote this week on the GOP healthcare bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

"Following a routine annual physical, Sen". His surgeons removed the clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy through an incision in the 80-year-old lawmaker's eyebrow. "In the meantime, Cheryl and I extend our best wishes to John, Cindy and the entire McCain family and pray for his speedy recovery". Tissue pathology reports would be available within the next few days.
