John McCain Blood Clot Surgery More Serious Than Thought?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Kentucky walks to the floor of the Senate from his office after a GOP meeting on health care at the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Thursday. Senate Republican leaders presented a revised health-care plan to their

According to the #New York Times, the new development unfolded after the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell announced his decision to postpone the voting, initially scheduled for the coming week.

Instead, the amendment will be scored by HHS, which is unusual because HHS is pushing for the bill's passage and not an independent arbiter like CBO is. McConnell is under increasing pressure to ditch the amendments offered by Senator Ted Cruz that throw out numerous "mandated" coverages that insurance companies are forced to offer with every Obamacare policy. An earlier report said the last proposal would leave 22 million people without health insurance by 2026.

"I've been involved with health care for 20 years as a physician", he said "It was in awful shape before Obamacare, got worse under Obamacare, and I predict that the fundamental flaw of Obamacare will remain with the Republican plan, and this is a big reason why I can't support it".

McCain's surgery was a minimally invasive craniotomy, or a surgical opening into the skull, with an eyebrow incision, a statement from his office said, adding that McCain, 80, is resting at his home. He did not say when he would return to the health care bill.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., the bill's strongest opponent from the party's conservative wing, contended Sunday that the pause could further hurt the bill.

"So it kind of annoys me that Republicans are going back on their word to repeal Obamacare", he said.

The healthcare bill was already on rocky ground even with McCain, as many speculated whether McConnell could pull together 50 votes.

Senate Republicans unveiled a revised version of their health care bill Thursday, and GOP leaders had planned a vote, or at least to take the procedural steps toward a vote, in the upcoming week. The state executives, some of whom accepted expanded Obamacare Medicaid subsidies, have argued against the inclusion of deep cuts to the program. The other option would be for the two chambers to negotiate a new plan, but most people in Washington expect the House to simply approve the Senate bill. It also includes $70 billion more than the first draft to help cover state-based health care reforms and an additional $45 billion to help states combat the opioid epidemic. After a speech in which Pence claimed 60,000 disabled Ohioans were waiting to get care, a spokesman for Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich dismissed the claim as false on Twitter. I've developed them twice after surgeries. He said if money is reduced, governors will be left to decide among unpopular choices: "Raise a tax or limit coverage or change eligibility requirements" for coverage. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a key conservative.

McCain's office also released a statement from the Mayo Clinic, saying a blood clot was removed from above the senator's left eye Friday after it was found during a routine annual physical. They've stalled all judicial nominations, including non-controversial ones, slowing the process to a crawl until Republicans hold health care hearings.

Cornyn acknowledged that if the Senate is unable to attract enough GOP votes that it will "keep trying" but will eventually have to come up with a different plan.
