Senate to delay health vote after McCain surgery

Senate to delay health vote after McCain surgery

But the revised Senate health care bill would scrap the birth control mandate - allowing insurance companies to sell plans that don't include any of the now mandated women's preventive health services, from birth control to HPV testing.

"While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations, and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act".

The Congressional Budget Office had been scheduled to release an analysis Monday on the latest GOP bill, including estimated cost and scope of insurance coverage. Doctors from the Mayo Clinic said the senator's surgery was successful and he is resting comfortably at his home in Arizona. "Did McConnell have the votes to get it passed?" The first attempt failed in June, as Republicans lacked the votes to pass their bill.

"There are few people tougher than my friend John McCain, and I know he'll be back with us soon", McConnell said. It includes a provision Texas Republican Sen.

The pressure is on Lee and the handful of other Republican holdouts on the bill meant to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare, because Senate leaders can afford to lose only one more GOP vote.

The solution, Collins said, is to tackle health care through "the normal process of committee hearings, expert witnesses, and writing a bill with bipartisan support".

"President Trump and I believe the Senate health-care bill strengthens and secures Medicaid for the neediest in our society", Pence said in a speech to governors Friday. With a 52-seat majority and Democrats unanimously lined up against the legislation, Republicans can not afford another defection.

Collins strongly disagreed in an interview Sunday with CNN.

Medicaid affects millions of Americans, young and old

The kind of deregulated insurance markets envisioned by the House and Senate bills would mark a return to what health insurance looked like before the current health care law was enacted in 2010.

"Once you pass a bill, you are then responsible for what happens afterward".

The hard political calculus facing Republicans was clear in a new poll released Sunday that showed that the public prefers the Affordable Care Act to the Republican health-care plan by a roughly 2-to-1 margin.

"The health care bill is a Republican effort to make good on a promise they have been making for a number of years", he said.

"The president has been monitoring what's going on with health care, and he and his staff have been involved with what's going on in the Senate", she said.

McConnell over the weekend announced that any vote on a health care replacement would be postponed until Sen. "We wish Senator McCain a speedy recovery", Helen Ferré, White House director of media affairs, told reporters Sunday when asked about the Senate delay.

The bill's dramatic cuts to the Medicaid program are a significant concern for governors such as Sandoval as well as moderate senators such as Susan Collins (R-Maine).
