GOP healthcare bill is one opponent away from demise

Senate GOP Leaders Release Revised Draft of Health Bill

However, such operations usually require longer recovery times, according to neurosurgeons.

The 2008 Republican presidential nominee, McCain was resting comfortably at home in good condition after Friday's operation, his office said.

The tissue that was removed is undergoing analysis, and McCain's office says results should be available within the next several days. While Republicans held hearings on alternatives to Obamacare in the past, the Senate Republicans have not held a single hearing on their legislation this session.

Possible causes for such a clot could be anything from a fall or head injury to a stroke. Doctors frequently conduct cancer tests after a clot. For this, Mr. McCain's presence is indispensable.

Even then, McCain would be back to work within a few weeks time. This meant opening the skull and making an incision above his eye to get at the clot close to his brain.

The delay allows more time for Republicans to review the bill, first unveiled last Thursday.

"Usually, a blood clot in this area would be a very concerning issue", said Dr. Nrupen Baxi, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City.

The Senate Budget Committee did not offer an explanation for the delay but said it would provide more information and updates as appropriate. It's common in the elderly, especially if they're on blood thinners.

Following a routine annual physical, Sen.

Or it could give Republican leaders the additional time needed to shape the bill to win over skeptical lawmakers. CNN's Eric Bradner reported from Rhode Island over the weekend that the National Governors Association had its summer meeting - and health care was front and center.

In a letter sent Friday night to the Senate Republican and Democratic leadership, the two major associations representing health insurers, which don't typically send such missives jointly, said the amendment "is simply unworkable in any form and would undermine protections for those with pre-existing medical conditions, increase premiums and lead to widespread terminations of coverage for people now enrolled in the individual market".

And McCain has expressed his displeasure with the bill.

Senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME already announced that they would not support the bill, which the Congressional Budget Office estimated would leave only 22 million Americans without health care, as compared to the 23 million who would lose their benefits under the version passed by the Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives.

With death comes rebirth, so we could begin to think again about universal health care coverage for Americans, which both parties advocate, at least rhetorically (Republicans, access; Democrats, actual care). A poll released Sunday shows only 24 percent of Americans support the bill, while 50 percent prefer Obamacare. Well, we'll just have to wait until Johnny is fully recovered to hear the final verdict on the fate of Obamacare - and whether we'll be able to get, or even afford, health insurance at all - as the Senate has opted to wait until McCain returns to vote on the matter.
