Hoyer to CNN: Ironic That McCain Returns For Healthcare Vote

Psychiatry group tells members they can defy 'Goldwater rule' and comment on Trump's mental health

The Senate voted to begin debate on a bill to repeal and replace ObamaCare on Tuesday after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said "we can't let this moment slip by".

Less than a week after he was diagnosed with an aggressive brain cancer, Arizona Sen.

McCain's return could inject some suspense into a procedural vote to open debate on the health-care legislation, which so far has failed to pick up strength - no matter which version is considered.

Yet that comes only six days after Trump said with seeming petulance that Democrats were to blame for the legislation's failure to move in the Senate. So there is a chance he actually feels personally dishonored by the three women in the Senate who had the courage to stand up to the GOP and save millions from losing health care, but his energy would be better spent investing in a basic American geography course at the local adult education program.

In a radio interview with "1440 Keys", Rep. Blake Farenthold said the Senate has failed to show the courage to dismantle the health care law. Her West Virginia constituents reportedly will be the most-harmed by her ObamaCare repeal vote.

"I have a feeling if there's any way he can be back he'll be here, whether or not his doctors like it, knowing John", Sen.

Paul tweeted that McConnell informed him Tuesday morning that that the plan is to write on a repeal and delay plan that resembles a Senate-passed bill from 2015.

The importance of the vote was highlighted by Sen. With Democrats united in opposition, the GOP can only afford to lose two of their own votes. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska said, "The Senator hasn't said which way she will vote on today's MTP as she's pushing for clarity on what we are proceeding to".

Once the repeal-only bill is on the floor, it could be amended "in various ways", Barrasso said, including changing it to a repeal-and-replace bill.

McConnell said he meant to push for straight Obamacare repeal this week with a replacement in two years. "But they can now keep their promise to the American people", Trump said Monday at the White House.

Senate Republicans also could consider a shortened version of repeal, called a "skinny repeal", which would end the mandates in Obamacare on individuals and employers to obtain or provide health insurance, and a medical device tax, a Senate aide and a lobbyist said.

"We have a duty to act", McConnell told senators before the vote, reminding Republicans they had promised to repeal Obamacare in four straight elections.

"We have a lot of people who are really concerned, concerned they may lose access to healthcare or anxious it may become so expensive they have to choose between going to the doctor or falling into huge debt", Hannah Taube with Oregon Working Families said.
