Senate Health Care Debate Delayed Due To McCain Surgery

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel

If he loses even one more Senator, then it won't matter if McCain is there or not, but with McCain out of town and apparently a "yes" vote for the revised bill, proceeding without him would be fatal for the bill.

As Sen. McCain, who's eligible for federal subsidies to pay for his healthcare, recovers from his surgery and the Republicans again stall the vote, many have noted the irony of the lawmaker's health needs holding up legislation that would leave many without healthcare. But two Republican senators have already declared their opposition to revised legislation that was unveiled on Thursday.

"Senator McCain received excellent treatment at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, and appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff. The problem is the substance", the NY senator told reporters.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the announcement late Saturday.

Until McCain's surgery, McConnell had hoped to vote on the Republican plan in the coming days. "Those are scheduled so far in the future they'll never take effect.' I've got to confirm those comments, but I think that really puts this motion to proceed in jeopardy", Johnson said. "Surgeons successfully removed the 5-cm blood clot during a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision", the Mayo Clinic said in a statement. With the health care vote on hold, McConnell plans to carry on with other business and nominations while McCain recuperates.

Insurers have remained largely on the sidelines, even as doctor and hospital groups and consumer advocates have battled against the Republican bills in the House and Senate. Several Republicans, including Sens.

There have been additional concerns about McCain's health recently. Collins, a more moderate Republican said that she felt the Medicaid cuts were too deep.

Two GOP sources familiar with the matter told CNN's Manu Raju last week that they don't expect the all-important Cruz amendment to get an official score from CBO (this was all before we learned Sunday that there won't be a CBO score on Monday after all).

"Arizona has been nationally recognized for running one of the most efficient and cost-effective Medicaid programs in the country", McCain said in a statement. "We're willing to do what we can to shore up the system now, to stabilize it to make health care available to people now, but we want reforms to go along with it".

The Congressional Budget Office projected that a June version of the bill would render 22 million more people uninsured over the next decade.

Now opponents of the bill will have more time to organize and rally voters against the controversial legislation that has already been criticized by governors of both parties.
