Senate advances on healthcare, with dramatic return by McCain

A still image from video shows US Senator John Mc Cain, who had been recuperating in Arizona after being diagnosed with brain cancer speaking on the floor of the US Senate after returning to Washington for a vote on healthcare reform in Washington

The tie-breaker came after two Republican defections and all 48 Democrats voting in the negative including Indiana Democrat Joe Donnelly.

On repeal of the Affordable Care Act, he said: "We've tried to do this by coming up with a proposal behind closed doors in consultation with the administration, then springing it on skeptical members, trying to convince them it's better than nothing, asking us to swallow our doubts and force it past a unified opposition". Republican Todd Young voted yes for debate.

Moderates are anxious repeal will cost millions of low-income Americans their insurance and conservatives are angry the proposed bills do not go far enough to gut Obamacare, which they consider government overreach.

They have nearly no margin for error making the presence of the 80-year-old McCain crucial if the vote is to succeed. The vote was 43 in favour and 57 against.

Two Republican senators say House Speaker Paul Ryan's statement that the House is willing to negotiate a final health care bill with the Senate is insufficient.

"I hope we can again rely on humility on our need to cooperate, on our dependence on each other, learn how to trust each other again, and by so doing better serve the people who elected us".

The senator said he voted to begin debate but won't vote for the Obamacare-replacement plan as it stands.

The senior senator was diagnosed with an aggressive form of brain cancer last week.

On Tuesday afternoon, a majority of Republicans in the Senate narrowly voted to open debate on legislation that will either repeal, repeal and replace, or repeal some aspects - though it's unclear which ones - of the Affordable Care Act. The vote-a-rama can last until senators reach literal physical exhaustion.

And he let us all down. If they decide they want the whole bad effect of kicking millions of people off of health insurance, then we aren't going to be able to agree.

But that plan caused consternation among GOP senators after rumors began to surface that the House might just pass the "skinny bill", call it a day and move on to other issues like tax reform after frittering away the first six months of Donald Trump's presidency on unsuccessful efforts over health care.

He, like all world-class players, is most interested in the Champions League . "They can not get Sanchez so they go for Neymar ". Wenger said the duo will take part in a training session while the rest of the team play against Sevilla in the Emirates Cup.

America's Essential Hospitals, a group representing safety-net hospitals, said in a statement it strongly opposed all the Republican plans and feared the big cuts in Medicaid in the bills "would jeopardise the health and financial security of millions of working people and families".

But for all the sentiment expected on Tuesday, the hard business of politics in polarized Washington is likely to quickly reassert itself. So far, the Senate has proceeded to the mess that Collins, Murkowski and McCain foresaw.

Sen. John McCain, with a scar from his recent brain surgery, speaks about the GOP-backed health care bill on the floor of the Senate on Tuesday. "If either one of them fails and another one succeeds, maybe we can find something in between that actually succeeds".

Arizona is one of 31 states that expanded Medicaid under President Barack Obama's health care law, and Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is anxious about tens of thousands losing their health insurance.

Farenthold complained about some female lawmakers and said, "If it was a guy from south Texas, I might ask him to step outside and settle this Aaron Burr-style".

SIEGEL: Can you imagine a bipartisan process by which you and Democrats give up something that you really want - say, the individual mandate - because that's the only way to get another bill?

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer called on Senate Republicans to "turn back now before it's too late and millions and millions and millions of A".
