U.S. health care reform collapses as two more Republicans say no

U.S. Senator John McCain will remain in Arizona next week to recuperate from a medical procedure that removed a 2-inch blood clot above his left eye, his office announced in a statement on Saturday.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Monday abandoned efforts to pass a broad Republican-only replacement of Obamacare, saying late Monday he will instead seek a vote on a simple repeal - but delayed by two years to give lawmakers time to seek a replacement. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he will retreat, and try to pass the more straightforward Obamacare repeal bill that Republicans approved while Obama was still in office and certain to veto it. The bill, which already had two Republican senators standing against it, needs every Republican vote to get through. "But we need that vote". The defections by Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas, in addition to previous opposition by Senators Rand Paul of Kentucky and Susan Collins of ME, were enough to sink the measure.

"I think the longer the bill's out there, the more conservative Republicans are going to discover that it's not repeal", he said on CBS's "Face the Nation".

Monday night, Trump took to Twitter to say Republicans should repeal Obamacare and start with a "clean slate".

They included administration officials and members of Congress. "It reinforces the fact we are an American company". The emails showed that Trump Jr. was made aware the information was coming from the Russian government.

The Kentucky Republican says, "regretfully, it is now apparent that the effort to repeal and immediately replace the failure of Obamacare will not be successful". For conservatives like Lee and Paul, it didn't go far enough in delivering on Republican Party promises to undo Obama's law.

"This bill would impose fundamental, sweeping changes in the Medicaid program", Collins said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday.

The White House meeting points to strained ties between Flake and President Donald Trump. "Those include very deep cuts that would affect some of the most vulnerable people in our society, including disabled children, poor seniors".

Collins said Sunday that she saw things "very differently" from the way the administration was pitching the legislation and pointed out that the bill would lower spending on Medicaid by about three-quarters of a trillion dollars by 2026 compared to current law. Cassidy and Lindsey Graham of SC proposed an alternative approach to replacing Obamacare that would keep much of the federal taxes in place and sending that money to the states to control.

The robot drone also has a built-in camera that looks for pink "3D Target Markers", which remind it where it is positioned. Called the Int-Ball, the drone shoots photos of the crew and their activities, freeing up the astronauts to do other work.

Now, it's up to senators to decide if they like it.

McConnell spoke of the potential of moving to a scaled-back, bipartisan version of health legislation last month when an earlier version of his GOP-only bill collapsed because it lacked enough support. "We'll read it over the weekend and come up with a decision and see if there's any improvements", Heller told reporters as he left the Capitol Thursday. One of the most significant was the inclusion of an amendment by Texas Sen.

Schumer will do what Harry Reid did when he was boss - make sure no House bill ever comes up for a vote in the Senate.

However, on Friday night, the CEO's of America's Health Insurance Plans and the BlueCross BlueShield Association called the plan "unworkable", and the conservative plan isn't going to easily get moderates on board. Several senators have made clear that they want GOP leaders to pursue an alternative that would require working with Democrats.
