CBO delays analysis of latest health care bill

AARP to Senate on Latest Version of Health Bill: Still Harmful

A group of elected republican moderates opposed them, however due to the number of Americans who would lose their health coverage, likely in the millions, while conservatives complain that the reform does not repeal fully Obamacare.

And the Republican senator's absence from the Capitol next week would have complicated the already tight math surrounding a planned Senate health care vote to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.

Even before the development on Saturday night, the fate of health care legislation seemed deeply uncertain in the Senate.

The AMA will soon issue a fuller response after thorough examination of the draft legislation. John McCain's announced absence following surgery leaves Republicans short of votes on their marquee legislation.

Mayo Clinic surgeons took out the 5-centimeter blood clot during "a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision", according to a Mayo Clinic Hospital statement released by McCain's office. McConnell then said, "While John is recovering, the Senate will continue our work on legislative items and nominations and will defer consideration of the Better Care Act".

McConnell last week had refashioned the legislation to attract additional GOP votes. In addition to two GOP votes of modern GOP Susan Collins of ME and Conservative Rando Paul of Kentucky, at least half a dozen other Republican senators have not supported or voiced reservations about McConnell's Thursday announcement.

Gas Prices In OKC Rise 1.4 Cents In Past Week
The most expensive gas price averages in Florida are in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton ($2.24), Pensacola ($2.23), and Miami ($2.22). Areas in California and their current gas price climate: Stockton- $2.78/g, down 5.5 cents per gallon from last week's $2.84/g.

"AARP also remains alarmed at the Senate bill's drastic Medicaid cuts".

But Senate Republicans have been seeking to overhaul health care and deliver on the party's promise to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, which they've been pledging to do since its 2010 enactment.

The tissue that was removed is undergoing analysis, and McCain's office says results should be available within the next several days. McCain was reported to be resting comfortably at his home in Arizona.

Doctors ordered a week of rest, the statement from McCain's office said.

Cornyn appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press", Collins was on ABC's "This Week" and CNN's "State of the Union", and Paul was on "Fox News Sunday" and CBS' "Face the Nation".
