    Default McConnell forced to delay healthcare vote because of McCain's healthcare.

    With Republican Sen. John McCain ordered to rest for one week following surgery for a blood clot, the vote on the new version of the health care bill won't occur until he returns, two congressional aides told CNN on Saturday night.

    Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell tweeted that the Senate will work on other legislative issues and nominations, and "will defer consideration of the Better Care Act" while McCain is recovering.

    With 2 Republican hard no's and a handful of undecideds... I'm not sure this will pass... I know Murkowski got a whole bunch of money just for my state so she is probably leaning to a "yes" now.

    Not sure about the other holdouts.

    Agreed. They've had years to prepare for this moment and haven't.

    A single senator's absence torpedoing your chances of passing a bill reflects on what a steaming pile of dog **** it is.

    That's a pretty dumb statement to make, given what happened to get Obamacare passed to begin with. It literally hung up on one Senator, unable to pass, until the Dems went the reconciliation way.

    Isn't Trump supposed to be some sort of badass world class negotiator? Why doesn't he negotiate a deal with the Senate? Should be easy since his own party controls the Senate and he's such a yuuuuge negotiator.

    Nonsense. Republicans simply saw that the ACA was a HUGE new entitlement that could not and would not be paid for, and thus would not ultimately work, which had in it provisions that directly and negatively impacted hiring and jobs, as well. To this day MILLIONS of people who were supposed to join have not and never will - because it stinks for them.

    It was and remains a liberal wet dream of government overreach.

    Don't try to cast Republican opposition to it as simply anti-Obama. It stands for and represents things Republicans have NEVER been for.

    Obama was a genius in one way. He really stepped up the leftist perversion of thought that allows people to feel good about enslaving others for their needs and wants. Want "free" healthcare, food, and housing? Shoot a bald eagle and trade your OWN freedom for these things instead of trading the freedom of others.

    What does Obamacare have to do with it? Donald promised us a fantastic healthcare bill that would not only cover everyone, and not touch Medicaid but would also be cheaper. Where's that?

    What does that have to do with the telling statement that this healthcare bill must be rotten if it hangs on one vote? I'm telling you that SAME was true for Obamacare, so by that standard, it must be rotten, too.

    Right?

    Exactly. It's kinda of stupid to have a Bill that affects 1/6th of the economy be so divisive Congress can barely even pass it and sometimes has to finagle the process to force it.

    Dumb then. Dumb now. Can't change the past but we can still affect the right now.
    All together now!
