Health system CEOs Senate bill will not resolve healthcare challenges

The U.S. Senate will delay its consideration of healthcare legislation while Arizona Republican Senator John McCain recuperates from surgery, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said on Saturday. Senator John McCain is recuperating from surgery and McConnell announced on Saturday that consideration of the legislation will have to wait until McCain recovers.

In Phoenix, Mayo Clinic Hospital doctors said Mr McCain underwent a "minimally invasive" procedure to remove the almost two-inch clot and that the surgery went "very well".

As Republicans work to replace the Affordable Care Act, Democrats have taken up a challenge to improve the existing health insurance marketplace.

The revised Senate health care bill draft - Better Care Reconciliation Act - allows health insurance companies to sell plans to Americans that do not include Obamacare's essential health benefits, such as mental health services and maternity care, notes Vox. John McCain returns to Washington.

Because two Republican senators have already said they will vote no on the motion to proceed, if McCain is a yes vote and were to miss the vote, it would fail 49-50. Surgeons in Phoenix removed a blood clot from above the senator's left eye on Friday. John McCain, Arizona Republican, recovers from surgery.

In his appearance on "This Week", Price countered by arguing that the Trump administration would be taking further administrative actions on health care and that the Senate health care bill is "not the entire plan".

Sen. Susan Collins, Maine Republican, also has indicated she will not support the bill.

At least five of the 52 Republicans in the upper chamber have said they wouldn't vote for the bill in its current form, leaving McConnell short of the majority needed to pass the legislation. The removal involved a "minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision", the hospital said.

"(Sen. McCain) appreciates the tremendous professionalism and care by its doctors and staff", McCain's office said in a statement released July 15.

But two GOP lawmakers said Thursday they would still vote no, and a number of other key lawmakers remained undecided. If he loses even one more Senator, then it won't matter if McCain is there or not, but with McCain out of town and apparently a "yes" vote for the revised bill, proceeding without him would be fatal for the bill. McCain said that he would file amendments that would address concerns of leaders from his state about how the bill would affect Medicaid.

According to Roll Call, the organization Save My Care is using this fact in a new ad that says: "Senators did make the bill better for one group of Americans. themselves".

"I do want to see more flexibility in the insurance market, but Sen".
