McCain's return cheers fellow Republican senators

McCain's return cheers fellow Republican senators

John McCain - but tough talk from President Donald Trump won no new public support from skeptical GOP senators for the flagging effort that all but collapsed last week.

McCain has given no indication that he's ready to step down from office, even tweeting recently that he'll be "back soon". "Thank you all for your best wishes!" the 32-year-old Fox News host tweeted, along with a photo of herself and her father sitting on a bench overlooking a mountain.

The argument that Senate leaders and the White House have made in the final days has been: Republicans promised to repeal and replace Obamacare. He'll push a bad bill through on a 50-50 vote, with Vice President Mike Pence breaking the tie, before he'll invite Democrats to the table or even listen to Republican governors like Ohio's John Kasich.

But no one, including the senators expected to vote on Tuesday, is sure what McConnell is planning.

McCain's dramatic 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.

Doctors discovered that McCain has an aggressive form of cancer, glioblastoma, and has a tumor inside his brain. McConnell said among them will be the 2015 Obamacare-repeal bill with a two-year delay that was vetoed by then-President Barack Obama.

Here Are the 5 Key Changes in the GOP Budget
The hope is that the caucus' budget will pave the way for spending plans down the road, McClintock said. Such reform, he said, "has got to be part of who we are as Republicans ".


Democrats will have a field day with the idea of Republicans lobbying doctors to send someone fighting a life-threatening illness back to Washington to help deny 22 million Americans health coverage. "I like people who weren't captured".

"We have been the target of a coordinated, connected smear attempt", she said in a Facebook live video she cut short.

If the vote succeeds, the Senate will move on to 20 hours of debate, divided evenly between Republicans and Democrats, and unlimited amendments in what looks like would be an unpredictable floor fight between Republican factions with Democrats forcing hard votes. Prior to Monday's announcement he would be back on the Hill, it was unclear how long McCain would be away from Washington. He added, "We could use some more loyalty, I will tell you that".

With solid opposition by the 48-member Democratic caucus, McConnell and Trump have been trying to find a middle ground acceptable to conservatives such as Paul seeking a complete repeal and moderates such as Collins who worry about sharp reductions in Medicaid. She didn't say that in her written statement - at least, not exactly.

"I want to get it on the record that never, never did I say or was the intent behind what I had to say that John McCain should step down and I should take his seat", she said.

His unfortunate situation puts a high-profile face on the critical need that all Americans have access to affordable, quality health care.
