  • Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. leaves a meeting of GOP senators in the U.S. capitol on June 22 when most Republican senators were given their first opportunity to look at legislation aimed at overhauling the Affordable Care Act during the closed door meeting

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellCBO won't have Monday score for Senate healthcare bill After delay, Senate Republicans struggle not to let healthcare stall Health Secretary Price: More people will be covered under GOP bill than are now covered MORE (R-Ky.) announced Saturday night that Senate consideration of legislation repealing and replacing ObamaCare will be delayed while Sen.

Responding to the issue, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in a statement late Saturday that the Senate will defer consideration of the health care bill. John McCain recovers from surgery for a blood clot.

Senate Republicans unveiled a revised version of their health care bill Thursday, and GOP leaders had planned a vote, or at least to take the procedural steps toward a vote, in the upcoming week.

McConnell's announcement amounted to another setback for GOP efforts, promoted by President Donald Trump, to repeal and replace "Obamacare" after years of promises.

Surgeons in Phoenix removed a blood clot from above Mr McCain's left eye on on Friday.

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.

This comes on the heels of McConnell cutting the Senate's recess in half to focus on the new bill. The new bill aims to stabilize insurance costs for consumers, but also contains a controversial amendment.

With the party holding a 52-48 majority, they can afford to lose only two Republicans.

The Senate bill, like legislation passed earlier by the House, repeals mandates requiring individuals to carry insurance and businesses to offer it, and unravels an expansion of the Medicaid program for the poor and disabled enacted under President Barack Obama's law.

The further delay in the schedule is a problem for McConnell, as opponents of the legislation could use the extra time to pressure wavering GOP centrists to vote against it.

The tissue that was removed is undergoing analysis, and McCain's office says results should be available within the next several days. A statement from the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said the senator is resting at home "in good condition" and that "the surgery went very well".

He was re-elected in November to a sixth Senate term.
