John McCain undergoes procedure to remove blood clot above left eye

McCain was a solid "yes" on the motion to proceed, and his sudden absence means that *even if* every other GOP senator got behind the legislation, McConnell would only have 49 "yes" votes.

On Saturday, Senate #Majority Leader #Mitch McConnell said he had postponed the Senate #health care review amid the announcement by Sen. John McCain is recovering from surgery in his home state of Arizona this week.

Senator McCain had surgery to remove a blood clot above his left eye, and he will not be in Washington, D.C. this week.

McConnell's announcement came shortly after McCain's office issued a statement disclosing the surgery and noting that doctors had advised the senator to stay in Arizona next week to recover.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's latest health care bill has something for Louisiana and its two Republican senators - money.

It was unclear how long the delay will be. McConnell announced the Senate would delay August recess until the third week of the month to finish health care, then tackle backed-up nominations, the reauthorization of the Food and Drug Administration, and the annual defense policy bill. Already, two Republicans - Sen.

A health care vote will have to wait, this time because Sen. Paul, who has criticized the bill for not being conservative enough, has also said he will vote against the bill.

Mr McConnell and other Republican leaders have been urging senators to at least vote in favour of opening debate, which would allow senators to offer amendments.

In an interview on NBC News' "Meet The Press", the Texas Republican charged Democrats have done little to deliver healthcare reform.

"The real problem we have is that we won four elections on repealing Obamacare but [the Senate GOP's replacement bill] keeps most of Obamacare taxes, keeps most of the regulations, keeps most of the subsidies and creates something that Republicans have never been for and that's a giant insurance bailout superfund", Paul explained. An analysis of a previous version of the Senate Act has shown that this would result in more than 20 million uninitiated Americans over the decade compared to the current law. A spokesperson for the Senate Budget Committee said Sunday that the CBO will not release a score on Monday. Additionally, insurers have largely panned the GOP health care proposal, especially for a Sen. He had hoped the bill would be voted on this week. "That's what would produce the kind of legislation that we need".

However, on Friday night, the CEO's of America's Health Insurance Plans and the BlueCross BlueShield Association called the plan "unworkable", and the conservative plan isn't going to easily get moderates on board.

You didn't know that one tiny blood clot could wreak so much havoc.
